Want to know how to make money in your practice and keep it??? Learning how to turn a profit on day one, can be a game changer for those of us who have and run private practices. Susanne Mariga, CPA is the author of a soon to be released book entitled, “Profit First for Minority Business Enterprises”. She will be conducting a training for COC on the Profit First, helping us to understand not only why we should be using Profit First, but also how. For those new to Profit First, this will be a great introduction and for those who are already using this method, this can be a great refresher. Her book scheduled to launch on 5/25 will give details and the steps to implementing the Profit First method, which many have experienced the benefits of, almost immediately. With Profit First you will have a better understanding of the money that comes in (and goes out) of your business. But most importantly, you will learn how to make sure that no matter how much (or how little) you make, that you will be guaranteed a profit!! Note below: A portion of the proceeds from this course will be going to Hope Worldwide Zimbabwe to help send young girls to school!! So JOIN us for this valuable workshop. You will not only be “getting a little” but also “giving a little”!

There will be Q&A and it will be recorded for those who cannot attend the live session. Members of COCOA, no need to register, you can attend for free. However, if you wish to still donate, we will send the link separately.

NOTE: Susanne has committed a percentage of the proceeds from her book to send girls to school in Zimbabwe. So, when you purchase Profit First for Minority Business Enterprises, you contribute to an education that will alter the life of a Zimbabwean girl. By allowing young women to receive an education, not only do you alter their future, but you pivot the future of their offspring for generations to come. She thanks you for being part of her mission of changing legacies.

To further support Susanne’s efforts, COC will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this course to her cause at Hope Worldwide Zimbabwe.
