The Profit First Professionals Difference

Where It Began

Profit First Professionals was created in 2014 to help accounting, bookkeeping, and business coaching firms like yours escape the compliance trap and start making more of a difference for their clients. Using the principles documented in the book, Profit First, co-founders Ron Saharyan and Mike Michalowicz created a one-of-a-kind membership organization.

Where It’s Going

Profit First Professionals members continue to grow their firms’ reputations as elite professionals. By leveraging the education and resources provided through membership, they build thriving, highly profitable businesses for themselves and their customers.

Who should become a Fractional CFO firm?

Accounting Firms

Profit First is the perfect plugin to transition from a traditional compliance accounting firm to a modern value-based Fractional CFO firm.

You no longer need to be the messenger of bad news – taxes. You can be the messenger of great news – more profit.
Bookkeeping Firms

You have the most intimate relationship with business owners and their financial information.

Now you can direct them to the profit goals they’ve always dreamed of (and be valued by them accordingly).
Coaching Firms

Business owners historically hire coaches to get in, get it fixed, and get out. That’s not the case with Profit First Professionals firms.

Your coaching services will provide long-term benefits of increasing profits and the need to reengage your services to leverage the growing bottom line.
