My name is Sam Altman and I am the Principal and Founder of Full Cycle CFO. It is my honor to have you on this page because my goal is to ease your worries in finding an outsourced accounting team.
The reason I founded Full Cycle CFO.
In short, I started Full Cycle because I saw that “professional” and “customized” CFO services were talking about high quality but then providing very little.
The full story: I am privileged to have grown up with a family of entrepreneurs which gave me a true understanding and appreciation of small business and business ownership. This includes my sister, Miriam. Miriam went to a local accounting firm for assistance in growing her business, understanding/balancing her books, and having ease of mind knowing she was doing the right thing. After a few months of this service, she started having doubts. One time she came to me and said, “how could they close my books when I haven’t even submitted all my payments?” This was a huge red flag. The more I asked her, the more I knew she was getting poor service. She wanted the best, and the “best in town” fell short.
When business owners are counting on these services, I knew I had to fill a need with true quality – even if it was just to help my sister. From there, the business has grown to help vulnerable businesses. The books are the foundation of a company. Not only do I want my clients to have accurate accounting, but I’m also a resource to teach clients how to interpret and analyze their books to truly understand their business.
Experience. Experience is important – our team knows that. Combined, we have a total of over 50 years of experience working in accounting and finance.
