A: Profit First Professionals is a family of the most elite accountants, bookkeepers, and business coaches, who have helped drive profit in over 100,000 companies worldwide. Our mission is to Eradicate Entrepreneurial Poverty.
A: There are so many reasons! Only Certified Profit First Professionals receive expert training developed by Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First, and Profit First Professionals co-founder Ron Saharyan. Through this training, you will learn how to implement Profit First in any business. You will receive guidance on how to market and sell Profit First offerings in your business. And you will have the distinct advantage of leveraging the Profit First and Certified Profit First Professionals branding.
A: No. No university will hand out degrees or certifications without testing you understand and can successfully use the material. You will be allowed to display a Certified Profit First Professionals digital badge not because you bought it, but because you earned it.
What we will guarantee is a top notch learning experience and help through the process. If you do the work, set aside your limiting beliefs, and don't stop when things get difficult (and they will get difficult,) your certification will be an asset in your business.
A: Absolutely! We would love to have a conversation with you before you decide to invest in certification, though. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 855-802-2994 and ask for Ron.
