Business By The Books with Danielle Hayden


Jun 4, 2024

Even the most seasoned entrepreneurs have to understand their numbers if they want to successfully establish and scale a business. With 20 years experience, Cameron Hemphill is one of these entrepreneurs who has leveraged financial data to make strategic decisions and scale his SaaS business, Growth99, into a $10 million company — and it’s still growing. During its first year, Growth 99 faced significant challenges, taking eight months to gain traction and generate just $7,000 in monthly recurring revenue. In this episode, Cameron shares how he scaled the company to reach $100,000 in monthly recurring revenue by their third year, enabling massive growth and paving the way for long-term success.

Cameron and host Danielle Hayden also discuss the importance of strategic hiring, technology in automating processes, and maintaining discipline over motivation. Learn how to buy back your time, reach your goals, and start enjoying your business!
