Ken Kaufman's Impact Your Business is a business book that reads like a well-written short story. It is a must-read for small and mid-size business owners and non-financial executives alike.

Impact Your Business is an excellent example of financial best practices and the power these practices have to keep companies out of financial trouble or to rescue those already in trouble.

Meet Steve Loveland: Entrepreneur and business owner, now at risk of losing it all.
Many business owners and executives running SMBs will identify with the book's entrepreneur business owner, Steve Loveland. Steve has known the thrill of success, but is currently experiencing a dark depression over the possibility that his business won't survive. "When the allegory begins, he's overwhelmed, depressed, frustrated, and tired. The burdens he carries are heavy, and he can't seem to find a way to lighten his load."

Steve Loveland represents all the business owners whose businesses have outgrown their ability to manage all details and who don't have the clarity that financial reporting systems can provide to support the enterprise at its current level.

Finding clarity and reducing anxiety.
Clarity is a key word in Impact Your Business. The more clarity in all parts of the business, especially the financial elements, the less anxiety the business owner will experience. Ken's book is a journey to financial clarity.

Clarity is found in the persona of Jennifer, a finance executive who serves Steve as an interim CFO, and the IMPACT criteria she employs to provide peace of mind, better decision-making, and improved cash flow and profits.

IMPACT is an acronym.

Imagine listening to a presenter tell you to "move from qualitative data to quantitative data in order to improve performance, decision-making, acumen, and success." Boring, right? Not so in "Impact Your Business: An Allegory of an Entrepreneur's Journey to Clarity, Cash, Profit, Family, and Success." Ken has woven an interesting allegorical account that not only draws you into the story, but crystalizes - simply - the importance of understanding, interpreting, and applying the numbers. I thought I'd read a few pages and put the book aside ... I didn't. I couldn't. I read the entire thing, and highly recommend it to every entrepreneur and entrepreneur wanna-be who intends to be successful in their venture. Cindy Kraft, the CFO-Coach

Kaufman's book is an important read for every entrepreneur and small business owner. It's a quick and easy read book that will give you valuable financial insight to your business, and more importantly to your business's financial success. (Isn't that why you started a business in the first place?) If you're like me, I started a business because I had a great idea, and knew a little about the numbers to make it legitimate. Now, 11 years later and after reading "Impact Your Business" I've learned some valuable tips and after implementing them have already seen greater success in my bottom line! You won't regret the purchase or the time spent reading this book.
