Testimonials

JP N.
Sales Manager | Advice Media

I cannot say enough about how awesome it was to work with the content creation arm of CLS I had to train and ramp up two new reps on my third week at the company. I was trying to put fires out and take care of my other eight reps and get them trained. I didn’t know the product or our process very well.

Justin B.
CEO/Owner | Briggs Roofing Company

I had all these ideas I wanted to implement, but my biggest problem was just knowing how to get started. CLS sat down with me, asked all the right questions, and turned my ideas into something even bigger than I expected. Then they created all the processes and documentation to turn that idea into a real practice.

Mike P.
CEO | Spire Ranges

Our new operations manuals make installation and troubleshooting simple for our users, which means less strain on our customer support department and more satisfied customers. CLS’s dedication to quality helped us get every technical detail right, so we can feel confident that our customers are receiving the most accurate, helpful instructions.

Suzy T.
CSO | Arm Institute

We engaged with CLS to help with a large and complicated federal grant proposal. Madi West and her team were incredibly helpful in many aspects of the grant response – from research, to editing, to keeping our team organized and on track. They were always available when we needed help, happy to jump in no matter what we asked for, and thoughtful in offering suggestions to improve the outcome.

Jim Bennett, the founder of NOW CFO and C-Level Strategy, knows firsthand the challenges business owners face. Starting from the back of his car, Jim built his first company from nothing to nearly $70M in revenue in 18 years without any outside funding. The journey was not an easy one. Looking back Jim wished he had had advisors to turn to for advice and support through all the different challenges he faced. That wish led to C-Level Strategy (CLS).

CLS is that company. One where business owners can sign a single agreement and make a single call to get help for any area of their business. CLS offers support in every department including sales, training, processes, accounting and finance, tax, legal, operations, software and automation, insurance, and even exiting. CLS works with companies like NOW CFO who can afford big consulting firms but need help from qualified experts all the same.

Jim’s extensive business experience spans over three decades, with roles as Founder, CEO, Chairman, and CFO of various organizations. His expertise as a trained CPA and his leadership acumen enable him to tackle diverse business challenges. Before launching his ventures, Jim was an audit manager at Deloitte, a prominent Big Four accounting firm.

Jim recruits fellow business owners, operators, and managers who have been there and done that so the people CLS clients work with really understand what it’s like to stand in a CEO’s shoes. Through CLS, Jim and his team empower businesses by providing strategic guidance and comprehensive services, supporting their path to success.
