It’s tax season and so many of us are looking at our finances from the past year, some of us for the first time.  So there is no better time than now to discuss finances.  We are going to hear from a Finance expert who doesn’t hold back when it comes to talking money and finances.

Melissa Houston is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), a Business Finance Coach, a regular contributor at, and the host of the Think Like a CFO podcast. Melissa’s passion is to help entrepreneurs understand the importance of knowing their business numbers and helps them set up a system using her signature CFO Money Method Framework. Melissa shares how you can improve your profits by looking inside your business and understanding how your business decisions are affecting your bottom line.

When Melissa isn’t helping entrepreneurs become better CEO’s of their business, she can be found at the cottage with her husband Jamie, two teen children, and three dogs.

We dig into

  • Why it’s critical for product business owners to know their numbers
  • How our money mindset impacts our bottom line
  • Melissa’s 4 steps to profitably managing your business
  • Good budgeting practices and tools to be on top of your finances
  • How often to look at your numbers (hint, it’s more often than you think)
  • When to start drawing a salary

And so much more to profitably manage your product business.

Enjoy the episode!
