“For the first time in 20 years, my business is running without my fingers in it!”
For those of you participating in our programs, Christeen Era is a familiar, and greatly appreciated person. Christeen has a special story. Setting up her business to run without her direct involvement became mission critical a few short months into our work together when Christeen announced her pregnancy. Would we pull it off? Read on…

• “I have so many balls in the air, I don’t even know where to focus.”
• “I can’t believe I said THAT to one of my employees the other day—I was just so fed up with nothing being done to my standards!”
• “I’m so tired of being the only one who can get things done around here!”
• “Another year has gone by and I can’t see anything I’ve done anything to make my business better than it was last year.”

From barely breaking even to huge profits…
Chuck Parmely owns a $3.2 million dollar overhead door business – which sounds like a wildly successful business until you find out that his company has been in existence for 37 years, barely scratching 1% to 3% profitability; in other words, his business wasn’t making any money and surviving check by check. Chuck has implemented Profit First under the direction of Dr. Sabrina and subsequently, a business that had a $20K loss in 2014 turned around and achieved a $220K profit in 2015, and 2016 was even better… all while in a rural area that was experiencing an economic decline.
Chuck’s success story has been so impressive that his accountant went out of his way to visit him and figure out his formula to success… and that’s what you’re about to find out! Request our Profit First Starter Kit and join Chuck on the journey to profitability.
Chuck and Dr. Sabrina were interviewed by Mike Michalowicz on the Profit First Podcast, Episode 73.

Owner, Eckhardt Optics
I love sharing client Success Case Studies with you. I personally find it very helpful to learn from the experiences of other business owners.
In a recent Mastermind, I walked one of my clients, Dr. Steve Eckhardt, through a review of his first 8 months in coaching. We captured a recording and Steve agreed we could share it here with you. Enjoy!
Steve, tell us about your business.
We design and manufacture custom camera lenses. The business was founded in 2009. Our target customer is a design engineer who doesn’t specialize in optics. There are a lot of mechanical and electronic engineers out there who need some optics in their system but don’t know a thing about it. Our unique offering combines my strength in lens design with convenience.
