ABOUT OUR COMPANY
Continuous Scale is a new kind of business advisory firm - where strategic finance and deep tech intersect for high-growth companies.
We bring a full-stack, cost-effective CFO-accounting partnership to the table, working with corporate leaders to understand their business... at EVERY level. Continuous Scale's integrated teams use first-hand industry knowledge and experience-based expertise and perspective to generate tailored solutions for a business's lifecycle.
WHAT SETS US APART
There are many virtual accountancies out there, so we got to thinking about why you would choose us. We narrowed it down to three things. Individually, they are great. Together they make your experience and your outcomes meaningful.
RESULTS ARE EVERYTHING.
To deliver results, we ask why — a lot. Not just any questions — but the right questions, that help us get to the real issues quickly.
By understanding the underlying issues at play, we then develop a plan of action to overcome the barriers and define appropriate metrics to show that we are moving the needle in the right direction. Then, we celebrate together.
People-first as a business strategy is a cornerstone of how we work with clients, how we treat each other, and how we approach technology. We think about you and the business decisions you’re making. We think about the people using tech or key to the process — from your internal teams to external end-users. We talk, act, and team in ways that resonate with people, not personas, audiences, or clients.
SIMPLY, EASY TO WORK WITH.
Finance, accounting, and technology can be hard. It’s complicated, it brings together disparate teams sometimes with disparate goals, and it’s a big endeavor. So why not choose a partner who is easy to work with? Our accessible teams help make large projects and complex problems more manageable. We don’t waste your time. We are nice and thoughtful because it’s who we are as people.
Hi, I’m Sara Dickinson
Building business is my passion. I shine brightest in fast-paced, high-growth environments, where I can put my resourceful nature to work, drawing on my years of experience and knowledge of every core back-office function. I attribute most of my success over the years to the failures that taught me “what not to do.” I believe any failure can be our greatest growth opportunity and live for those ‘aha moments’ that change mindsets and open new possibilities.
I started my career in public accounting at KPMG, then fell head over heels in love with tech when I joined my first pre-IPO startup in 2013. After taking that startup through a successful IPO, I went on to do similar work for a handful of private and public enterprises across various growth stages.
When I decided to leave corporate life and start Continuous Scale, I was on a mission to expand my impact and share my experience on a much broader scale. Today, I am humbled and honored to work with some of the most exceptional entrepreneurs and businesses out there.
My commitment to you as my client, partner, team member, or human in my life is unshakable trust, honesty, and advocacy. I will match your urgency with relentless determination, make your goals my priority, communicate with transparency, and deliver high-quality work. I will always have your best interest in mind and care for your business like it is my own.
Let Us Help:
It’s one thing to manage a business; it’s quite another to grow it.
If you’re reading this, you know what I’m talking about.
It seems like the books are being handled properly. It seems like payroll is (mostly?) under control. It seems like the IRS is okay with how we’re handling our taxes. It seems like the financial reporting is in place.
We’re flush … most of the time. But we’re certainly not growing. We’re not prospering.
What are we missing?
This is a common story that we hear when we first start talking to business owners. The boxes are checked; the people are in place … but the fact is, they’re not quite sure how to optimize the financials for performance and growth.
Our specialty is in reading between the lines of the systems, the softwares, and the financial statements to see the true financial story being told … even when the reports all “seem” okay (for now).
The fact is that the Federal Government would love to have more of your business’s hard-earned money in their accounts. Your employees probably don’t care about cost control as much as they should. Your sales team might need to focus their efforts in a new direction.
But you don’t have to hand more dollars over to the government than they require just because you don’t know their rules as well as they do. You don’t have to live in a constant state of anxiety over the state of your books. The future of your business doesn’t have to be a question mark.
