“Hi Johnny , Thank you SO much for your help and coming over to see us. I really appreciated your time and all your pearls of wisdom and have plenty to think about to help us take the business to the next level.”
“I attended your workshop this weekend at the Bread and Butter festival which was great as it left me feeling a lot more confident understanding all the financial documents involved and required for investors. All the best and thank you for the informative lesson!”
“I’m applying for a small business loan, and have found the Talk Money videos and your handbook really useful; it really did help having started trading and having figures to put into the cash flow to really be able to understand the finances at a different level. Thanks so much… I have an accountant at the moment, but I am trying out Xero and seeing how much of it I can do to keep track of my finances as the day goes by. Because as you say cash is king (or Queen!).”
