But with a Fractional CFO, you get the financial expertise you need to set up for your next stage of success.

Kathy Svetina: The Fractional CFO's Inspiring Guide to FP&A

The reason your money feels chaotic isn’t that you aren’t up to managing it.

It’s that your scrappy financial systems are no match for your success.

Your growing business is generating lots of revenue—and even more confusion.

But you’re not the first to discover that success doesn’t make business any simpler.

Because as a company grows in size, its needs grow in complexity. So if you’re over $10M in yearly sales and climbing, then there’s a whole slew of financial habits it’s time to set aside.

You can’t go on like this


  • Asking bookkeepers and accountants for strategic advice
  • Jerry-rigging QuickBooks to do things it wasn’t designed for
  • Making major decisions (like hiring) without calculating their likely ROI
  • Getting by without regular forecasts, or maybe even a real budget
  • Just leaning on the classic strategy “make more money than you spend”

Graduate to the next level of managing your money
with our Fractional CFO service

With a part-time CFO from NewCastle Finance, you get all the strategic support you need to transform your money management.

Suddenly, you’re not doing things just to do them. You’re surfacing trends, translating them into business insights, and using it all to align your decisions with your long-term vision.

All like it’s routine.

If you’re used to feeling lost in your finances, then hiring a Fractional CFO is like finally switching on GPS.

What you get

  • Ongoing 1-on-1 sessions with Fractional CFO Kathy Svetina to talk through your challenges
  • Deep-dive assessments of your financial structure to start upgrading your systems
  • Expert plans and analysis so you can stop reacting and start controlling your direction

What we’ll achieve

Solve your nagging money mysteries

It’s stressful living with constant doubt. It’s also unnecessary.

Pricing, risk, debt, cash flow, profitability. Through regular meetings with an expert, you’ll get clarity on the mysteries you thought you had to live with.

Straighten out your systems

Upgrade to the right software, transition to the right reporting methods, and pick out the right KPIs.

Voilà: now you know what’s going on at a glance.

Bring more data into your decisions

Never make another major financial move blindly, whether you’re hiring, leasing, or taking out loans.

Instead, run the numbers, use them to guide you, and feel confident you can justify everything you do.

Get better results

You’ve got the sales. But how are your profits?

We’ll find where you’re getting squeezed so you can cut unnecessary costs and apply those funds somewhere with higher ROI.

Match your strategy to your vision

Instinct isn’t enough if you want to control your company’s destiny.

We’ll develop short- and long-term plans that reflect your priorities, so you end up with the company you intended to create.

Build a sturdy financial structure

You’re in this for the long-term. So let’s build like it.

There’s no good reason to keep guessing


When you first launch a business, you have no choice but to figure it out as you go. But as you grow, better options open up.

So if your business is bringing in at least $10M in annual revenue and growing fast, there’s no good reason to keep going it alone.

If you can’t afford expert help, you muddle through on your own. But if you can, you hire. It’s like taking a shortcut to your next stage of success. We hope to see you there.
