How A CFO Adds Value

How A CFO Adds Value

On this episode of the CFO Mission podcast, Phil Mazur talks about the three main functions of a business: production, profit, and protection. He stresses how important these functions are in relation to sales, marketing, operations, and finance. Phil also points out the CFO's role in small businesses, especially in the protection aspect, which covers legal, insurance, taxes, accounting, and business entity setup. He advises business owners to recognize the value of the accounting and finance function and not just see it as a cost. Phil urges businesses to take protective measures seriously for improved productivity.
