There Aren’t Enough Hours in the Day for You to Get Everything Done

Over the last 6 years, I have worked/interned with companies of all shapes and sizes. Whether it was the framework of a small, freshly acquired company like Evolv Tan, well-established mid-size companies like Pacific Medical Buildings or IVD Safepath, or top-tier firms like KPMG and Grant Thornton, if there’s one thing I learned it’s that there aren’t enough hours in the day for you to get everything done.

Companies are always growing and expanding. Between acquiring and retaining clients, increasing productivity and maximizing efficiency, the workload can get overwhelming at times. That makes it all the worse when special projects or surprise issues arise, forcing you to put off your more important tasks to work on those which are more urgent.

I am here to help you get the important tasks done, regardless, through a combination of internships and/or contract services, thus easing your workload and creating peace of mind.  Capabilities include:

  • Dashboards
  • Financial Modelling & Analyses
  • Business Cases/ROI Analyses

Employee #1 in on the Ground Floor of a New Business

I wore many hats during my two years working at Evolv Tan. I stepped into an empty office on my first day as the first employee and a few short months later we were a fully functioning company with a Sales Department, Tech Department and a full Warehouse. I had a broad range of responsibilities from purchasing equipment to recruiting staff including taking full responsibility for the financials to ensure timely and accurate bookkeeping and statements.  I built an intimate understanding of the relationships between the four main financial statements and the chart of accounts on a day to day basis, utilizing QuickBooks Enterprise as the accounting platform.

In the summer of 2014 I flew to Sydney, Australia to intern with KPMG and Grant Thornton for a month each. During this time I learned to write merger proposals, company valuations and Independent Expert Reports.  This gave me the opportunity to work with massive spreadsheets and learn the many intricacies of the Microsoft Office Suite and especially Microsoft Excel. I have a thorough understanding of the many formulas, functions, tables, charts and formatting options excel has to offer.

A No Hassle Solution to Your Everyday Problems

You may be understaffed, overworked, reprioritizing or letting important tasks slide and that’s where I come in.  At all of my previous office jobs/internships, there has always been a long list of important tasks that no one had time to do. From creating and formatting large excel spreadsheets to financial analyses, dashboards and special projects, work is always being added to the pile. I am here to help you work  through that never-ending to-do list so that you can focus on your highest priorities.  Consider me your excel assistant and accounting partner.  A no-hassle solution to all of your everyday productivity problems. Simply send me any work you need done via email, Dropbox or remote login and you’ll find your to-do list reducing in no time at all.

Chris Richardson proved himself as an adaptable quick-learner and goal-oriented team player from day one.  He was invaluable in helping me relocate an out-of-state acquisition to its new in-state location, walking into a completely bare office and warehouse on his first day and unfolding everything from there.  Working with Chris saved me time and money and I highly recommend him.  Faraje Kharsa, CEO, Evolv Tan.

Chris Richardson was a great asset for us at Pacific Medical Buildings.  I am grateful for the hard work and dedication he brought to work with him every day. Chris got himself organized on a project on his first day and completed it ahead of schedule. He integrated into our team immediately and was a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend him.  Claude Hooton, President (2006-2012) Pacific Medical Buildings.

Chris Richardson under-promised and over-delivered when he came to intern with IVD Safepath. He was always working from the moment he arrived to the second he left. Chris upheld the highest work ethic no matter how important or menial the task, even under minimal supervision. I highly recommend him.  Dave Lambillotte, Founder & President, IVD Research & SafePath Laboratories.
