A financial forecast is an estimate of future financial outcomes for a company. Using historical internal accounting and sales data, in addition to external market and economic indicators, a financial forecast is an economist's best guess of what will happen to a company in financial terms over a given time period.

Jim McConnell is a results oriented professional that has worked with CEO’s, CFO’s, Managing Partners, Partnership Groups, General Managers and Management Teams in a variety of business environments to identify and realize millions of dollars in improvements to bottom line results over course of career.
