Why I am passionate about Profit First

As a certified Profit First Professional, my passion is enabling business owners to build sustainable businesses through learning how to generate profit, structuring systems for financial success, and earning the income they deserve.

I first started using the term ‘Profit Pioneer’ in early 2016 as a way to eloquently define the broad spectrum of services that I provide to my clients.

I was previously assessed for my personal leadership archetype and the result: Pioneer Seeker. Which in summary has attributes of trying things first, looking outside of the norm, fiercely adventurous, and sees gifts and strengths in others. All of this is true of my nature when it comes to business and accounting.

Exploring and implementing Profit First not only in my own businesses, but for my clients, I have seen tremendous growth, improved management, and inspirational innovation.

It is because of this that I wanted to see the Profit First movement expand into Australia. Now my goal is to lead the Profit First Professionals in Australia to bring greater success to PFP clients and nurture the PFP community down under.

It took twelve minutes and thirty two seconds, give or take a millisecond. Ron and Mike debated how to help businesses that were seeking financial fortitude. Mike had the fix: Profit First. Ron had the plan: Profit First Professionals. After their twelve minute discussion the decision was clear, the Profit First Professionals organization was to be created. Having built multiple companies in the staffing industry, Ron leads our membership of world class accountants, bookkeepers and business coaches who guide entrepreneurs to the highest degrees of profitability.
