Who is Bennett Financials, really?

And what about us is different from the 138,000 other tax planning and CFO firms in the US?

It’s a grim statistic that half of all businesses fail within the first five years because of a lack of cash flow. We believe we’ve uncovered why – and more important – how we can help prevent it from happening to you.

There is a common ‘profit at all costs’ mindset among entrepreneurs that needs to shift into a cash flow mindset. It’s one of the quickest and most effective ways to help you succeed. And while we know you’re passionate about your business, you may not be so passionate about financial data analysis, or even know how to develop a cash flow mindset. 

But we do. In fact, the thing we’re MOST passionate about is optimizing cash flows and keeping more money in your business (and your pockets).

So you do your thing. 

We’ll do our thing.

And together we’ll be part of the 50% of businesses that make it to thriving success.

Sure, we could bore you and focus on stats like having over 35 years of experience, or that we’ve worked with over 600 other entrepreneurs globally, or even that we’ve been featured in national publications like StarTribune Business.

But honestly that seems a bit too much like what the other 138,000 firms might do.

We’d rather lead with our why and our ethos, and let you decide if we’re the kind of folks you’d trust to manage your money and help you grow.

We are intensely committed to both our mission and metrics.

We believe in radical transparency.

We favor autonomy and take ownership.

We believe our best perk is amazing people.

We dare to be different and question the status quo.
