Lauren gifts us with the key to unlocking a wealth of knowledge on the financial decisions that steer the business ship, the crucial role of CFOs, and the importance of financial literacy. We dive deep into the financial implications of hiring a team member. We also explore the need to think beyond salary, considering benefits, payroll taxes, and workers' comp, and challenge the traditional notion of part-time versus full-time roles. 

We wrap up the discussion by looking at the legal determination of independent contractors versus employees and how this impacts your finances. This episode is more than just a conversation; it's your roadmap to financial mastery in business.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Financial decisions for business owners
  • Role of CFO, hiring considerations
  • Financials, hiring, and business growth
  • Considerations for hiring and budgeting
