Being a small business owner has its many perks. You get to live out your dream daily, turn plans into action, work your own hours, and most importantly, contribute to your society. What’s more satisfying than creating jobs, and helping stimulate the economy in your local community? We can’t think of anything!
But like everything in life, owning a business does have its downside. Poor cash flow, inflation, taxes, keeping up with your social media, you name it! On top of that, there always seem to be new bills, vendors, and invoices making their way to your desk. How can you keep track of it all? We built Flume so small business owners like yourself can have one less thing to worry about.
