ADVICE FROM BRYCE
As you know, I travel the Greater Bay Area to meet and assist local business owners, and coming up next week, my business partner and fellow small biz advocate, Larry Hebert and I are visiting Marin County to optimize a biz owner’s cash flow since his previous landlord sued him for owed back rent for close to two years plus damages and won. He’s fortunately able to keep his other two locations open, but he and his former neighboring businesses were all sued and lost in court, all in sizable 6-figure amounts. This is silently happening across the region, and we want to help.
We know financials aren’t fun, but it’s not a time to ignore them if it’s getting overwhelming, whether it involves landlords, inventory control, loans or even bookkeeping.
If you’re in a situation that’s keeping you up at night, we’re out to help make sure Greater Bay Area businesses are on the right track financially, so reply to this email and just know that there are people who really want to help you without a catch.
