Weekly Accounting was incubated by BrightZen Systems - the creators of Broker Generator, and Assembled Brands. We developed Weekly Accounting because of the challenges we faced helping lots of different kinds of businesses over many years.
When Weekly Accounting Engineers think about business, we think about the trends in your weekly metrics compared to last quarters weekly average. We talk about forecast to actuals on every metric that drives your forecast. Its a completely different language.
When Second Life was considering an IPO we pre-cleared our revenue recognition methodology for the sale of an infinitely transferrable digital good with the SEC. So many accountants wasted so much time. Without changing anything about the business at all.
We developed a the Weekly Accounting platform because so many people were asking us for help with accounting, forecasting, storytelling and fundraising. We wanted to free ourselves from the drudgery of basic accounting, SQL queries and analysis that we've done over and over with data from every source.
Our design goal was to make it this simple:
Dear Data, please get the HubSpot data from Assembled Brands into the Weekly Data Warehouse.
If you are not managing your business weekly, you are managing your business weakly
It's really that simple. When everyone has the right data, in the right view, with the right intention magic happens. We've seen it over and over. And we want to share it with you.
We think we've discovered an insight that can help every small business. This insight is a gift that's been given to us. We agree with Lewis Hyde
If a gift is to retain its value it must always be passed on.
We have never missed a meal and we've always had a roof over our heads. We've always been able to make money. We expect that these things will continue to be true for the rest of our lives.
Because "the anxiety of making a living no longer drives us", we can turn our attention to "how can we best give of our gifts?"
Connect your Quickbooks and we'll build you a Weekly Data Warehouse and an Integrated Financial Model for you for free. We'll talk with you about what we see in your numbers as we look at it from both the Clouds and the Dirt. We call that an Initial Business Review.
