Why I Created This Course

I am passionate about practice owners being well remunerated for their efforts and creating a business that works for them.

For me, my practice was always profitable and even in the first year I matched my prior salary. There was pressure for my practice to be profitable as I was the breadwinner and my husband was a stay at home Dad.
I attribute this financial success to paying close attention to my numbers consistently no matter how “good” or “bad”. It took time, but I discovered the formula on what numbers to track, how to analyse them, identify leaks and ultimately positively change them. Tracking and measuring my numbers consistently put me in the drivers seat of my practice.

In this course, I bring together all the practical resources and systems that I developed and used as a sole practitioner and continued to use when I brought on a business partner.

Does this sound like you?

I’m working too many hours

I’m not getting enough reward for the work I do

I have not balance in my life

I know I don’t focus enough on the $’s in my practice but I’m exhausted and at a loss and I’m not even sure what numbers I should be focussing on

I’m working like a madman or manwoman and I’m not even netting $50K a year!

I feel like I’m flying blind

I’m good at what I do and my clients love me but financially I’m going backwards. I’m embarrassed and I don’t know what to do.

My team are getting paid more than me!

In the Power Up Your Profits course you will gain confidence in the numbers area of your business and coupled with the excellent skills and expertise I know you have in the technical and client relationship building areas, this final piece of the puzzle will have that bottom line and your remuneration package start moving in the right direction!

Are you ready to turn around your numbers and your life today?

The stuff Amamda shares in the course is the stuff you dont learn at uni or working for a boss. It’s stuff Amanda has learnt the hard way, through trial and error, sleepless nights and bits and pieces taken from courses, mentors and coaches that she has spent well over $100,000 on over the years.

Here's just a few examples on what I've witnessed and what I've had messages of thanks for ....

Participants wish they had have had something like this to guide them when they first set off on this journey. They say it would have helped to avoid a few heartaches & headaches!.
So much more confidence and conviction around setting boundaries and their prices. A participant whilst doing the course secured two new client groups for tax work where the annual fee was $10k each “and they both did not blink, so happy days! “I am starting to value myself. More clients like that and I am going to tell the smaller tyre kickers and time wasters to F right off!!!! 😉”
A desire to focus on increasing their remuneration and their profits and not just settling for what is leftover at the end of the month or year
Clarity about where to make changes in their practice to move the needle
One participant said that after they watched one of the videos on average wages for principals they had a “little performance review with themself” and increased their wages on the spot after realising “they had been paying themself peanuts”.
Another participant decided to scrap their heavily discounted first meeting fee and was set to net just over $200 extra per meeting!
