Ellen teaches the basics, the few things that make all the difference to your success…bare bones business basics.
Her passion for business literacy began when she nearly tanked her own family’s business. Through the help of wonderful mentors, she learned how to keep track of the money…and make more of it. In turn, she has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs start, fix and grow their companies.
She’s a columnist for PHC News – providing “in the trenches” insight that business owners can relate to. Her consulting work led to a position as president of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, a home service plumbing franchise company. On her watch, the company grew from zero to $40 million in sales, becoming the 18th fastest growing franchise.
Ellen is also the author of four business basics books. She has sold over 60,000 copies of Where Did the Money Go? – Accounting Basics for the Business Owner Who Hates Numbers, and How Much Should I Charge? – Pricing Basics for Making Money Doing What You Love. Her latest endeavor is called The Bare Bones Biz Plan and the mini-book, The Bare Bones Weekend Biz Plan, offer a simple, easy-to-implement program for crafting your vision and turning it into a successful business.
Ellen says, “Business basics are EASY! The problem is…the basics aren’t taught in school. Common sense…isn’t common! I have a degree in Business Administration, and I still didn’t learn essential business success skills, even in college. I learned the hard way…and my mission is to make it easy for you. You can learn the basics…how to have more fun and make more money in your business. I am happy to help you!”
