Perhaps you’ve heard the business mantra: “under promise and over deliver”. Maybe you’ve heard again and again how the accounting profession needs to evolve to offer more advisor or coaching services which would compliment the compliance work we perform. But “what” and “how” may be the questions that remain. Listen as Laura and Roger consider the next steps accounting professionals can take to engage with the clients more, to increase the revenue per client while providing great value. This is a discussion about the Lifetime Value of a client as well as improved client relations. There is a turnkey process to Implementing Profit First in your accounting business.

About Our Guest: Laura Elkaslassy

Laura Elkaslassy is a certified Profit First Professional. Laura’s 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. She first started using the term ‘Profit Pioneer’ in early 2016 as a way to eloquently define the broad spectrum of services that she provided to her clients. She was previously assessed for her personal leadership archetype and the result: Pioneer Seeker. Which in summary has attributes of trying things first, looking outside of the norm, being fiercely adventurous, and sees gifts and strengths in others. All of this is true of her nature when it comes to business and accounting. Exploring and implementing Profit First not only in her own businesses, but for her clients, she has seen tremendous growth, improved management, and inspirational innovation. It is because of this that Laura wanted to see the Profit First movement expand into Australia. As a result, today Laura is the CEO of Profit First Professionals Australia leading the membership of PFPs to bring greater success to their clients and to nurture the PFP community down under.
