Included with the Financial Blast and Intensive Programs -The KFP Graduation Program

As we conclude our consulting sessions, we kick in the Graduation Program designed to make sure the systems you put in place STAY in place.  Here’s how it works:

  • On the 10th of each month for THREE months, send us…
    • Your latest Financial Quick Check.
    • The supporting Balance Sheet and Income Statement
    • The Month End Checklist for the previous month
  • We will review the files for accuracy and look for “Red Flags.” If all is well…we will send you a THUMBS UP email.  Should you get a THUMBS UP, there is no need to schedule a follow up call. There is NO CHARGE for a THUMBS UP email review of your files.
  • Ellen will follow up and check your homework, via email and phone, and address the challenges or fix the mistakes.  She will applaud your progress!
  • Three THUMBS UP…and you graduate! That means you are operating from KFP and using your Budget and Financial Reports to make better, faster, more profitable decisions.
  • We will send you and your team official Graduation acknowledgement of your financial accomplishments.
  • We will make Grad School programs available to you when you have tackled KFP and are moving on to more strategic business management challenges.


LoefflerThe biggest impact in working with Ellen?  Operating from a KFP (Known Financial Position) and knowing the score.  Ellen walked us through getting our financials current and accurate.  This allows me to create a winning selling price and I am confident charging it.  If you don’t know the numbers, then you just don’t know what’s working and what’s not – in marketing, sales and operations.  When you know your numbers, the pieces can fall into place and you are able to move your company to the next level.  If you own a business, you need this program…it will pay for itself.

Loeffler“After working with Ellen, we can look at our books in a split second at any given time and know if we are making money.   And, as long as we keep doing the tasks that Ellen has told us to, we will continue to know our financial position.”

“I guess I was not too sure that Ellen and her team could really provide our company with something much better than what we were already doing.  Once I started working with Ellen I realized how much I still had to learn. Since completing the program with Ellen, we now have the ability to know on a daily basis where we are financially. We can run a daily P & L or Balance Sheets which are actually accurate and understandable!!

We understand on a daily basis what our hourly and daily cost of doing business is and what level our pricing needs to be. Budgeting, which was never done before, is now done and utilized. The best part of all is that we can do all of this without having to hire any new administrative personnel and more importantly without having to “wait for the accountant to get our stuff back to us”.

If you have an open mind and are ready to make a change for the better then I would highly recommend enlisting the services of Ellen and her team.”
