Here’s What Companies are Saying About Working with Us:
Hiring Rick has been one of the best business decisions we’ve ever made. He helped us get a firm grasp on our overall financial picture, refine our process, and develop a strategic hiring plan that has allowed us to grow our business with purpose and confidence. Not only is Rick a brilliant financial mind, but he is also incredibly kind and generous with his knowledge and his time. Every meeting with him feels like a lesson from your favorite teacher – you always leave having learned something new. One of our favorite things about Rick is the way he instantly joins your team and puts himself completely in your corner, always saying “we” instead of “you.” Furthermore, Rick has also graciously connected us with other like-minded professionals in his network, including CPAs, bookkeepers, and insurance agents, who all share the mentality that we are building relationships, not exacting transactions. Once you experience working with Rick, you’ll wonder how you ever got this far without him! – Amanda Moriuchi, Chief Executive Officer AppIt Ventures | Custom Technology Solutions

Rick has worked with my company for many years. He has provided valuable guidance and insight through good times and bad. He takes time to really understand our market, the “company personality” and market fluctuations in our industry. Rick is a thoughtful, genuine advisor. I highly recommend him to anyone needing objective CFO advice. – Maxine McBride, President, Clockwork Marketing Services, Inc.
We hired Rick as our interim CFO to help us on both strategic and tactical levels. First, Rick helped us hire a bookkeeper to manage our day-to-day finances. This enabled us to take our focus off of the details and concentrate our efforts on the bigger picture. Rick then provided high level direction by creating and implementing simple processes whereby we could run our business more efficiently. Rick helped us facilitate the process in stages, and through this effort we have improved our cash flow and financial outlook. By providing clear goals and gently guiding the entire process, we are on track for positive growth because of Rick’s efforts. – Chris Blair, President, Blair Financial Planning
Rick Arthur has been monumental in a business that I am a board member of. Simply put, we would not be where we are financially if it were not for his ability to engage all team members on the financial plan and hold them accountable.

If you are someone that runs a billion dollar company, or just starting your business, Rick will be able to provide keen insight and detail that most people haven’t considered. He is both formally educated and tried and tested in the business world. If he chooses to work with you, you should jump at the opportunity. – Zach Balle, Co-founder and Board Member for Hug It Forward, Board Member for The Power of Purpose
