Talking finance with Susan Boles from ScaleSpark
Today, I want to dig deep into some of the decisions you make early on in your agency that can have a HUGE effect on how your business develops in the future. We will be discussing:
Do you charge hourly or do you use value-based pricing?
Do you make sure you and your team use time tracking?
Are you sure you are making the best use of your time?
In this episode I am delighted to be joined by Susan Boles, virtual CFO and owner of organisation, Scale Spark.
