60 Minute CFO

Bridging the gap between business owner, banker and CPA





"This is a great book! When the CEO and leadership team understand the numbers and what they mean, they have a decided advantage. Duryee's book is perfect for this."

- John M. Colosimo, Consultant and Executive Coach



60 Minute CFO is a comprehensive management and finance guide, and is a must read for anyone who wants to understand business finance.


I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and only wish that it had been available to give my clients when I was a practicing CPA. I think that the chapters on dealing with the CPA and banker are especially valuable and would serve to greatly enhance communication between business owners and their advisors.

Duryee explains the financial management side of a business in a very clear and understandable manner. This book is what every successful business leader must know and understand about how to run a business successfully.

Dave’s book, 60 Minute CFO: Bridging the Gap Between Business Owner, Banker and CPA, is written in language that a non-financial person like me can easily understand, and when coupled with the workbook, Business Mastery, these tools have literally changed my life. I now have a firm grasp of the financial condition on my company, and my banker loves the fact that we have forecasted financial statements and cash flow. I can’t say enough about how much the combination of this book and Excel workbook have expanded my knowledge about business finance!

Thanks to Duryee’s book, 60 Minute CFO: Bridging the Gap Between Business Owner, Banker and CPA, my leadership team now has a firm grasp on the financial condition of our company. We use the Excel workbook, Business Mastery, every month to examine our ratios and cash flow and we are all on the same page and solidly focused on what we need to do to be successful. All of us come from a non-financial background, and it is so helpful to finally understand what all the numbers mean. The ability to forecast financial statements, cash flow, and ratios allows us to track actual performance versus projections. I love this, and so does my banker!
