Thanks for putting this program together. It is a lifesaver! - Sarah Black
After our first conversation, I just knew that Ingrid understood our struggles and that she was the perfect person to help our industry. Since then, Ingrid has been integral in helping me to evolve the profitability of my own business. I am so grateful that she has created this program.
It gives me chills to see that the goals that I created to elevate our industry are coming to fruition. I am so thrilled to be on this journey with all of you!

When I started with Ingrid, I had no concrete structure for my business finances and no plan for where the revenue would go after it came in. I also had TONS of start-up and student loan debt, no plan of attack, and very little confidence that I could dig myself out of the hole. Oh, AND I was a working mom with two little ones under three and two teenage stepchildren. So for the first couple years in business, we were mostly a single income family, as I was part-time stay-at-home-mom, and my income was quite sporadic.
Needless to say, the financial stress in my life was high. I felt completely overwhelmed. I carried a lot of guilt and shame about my debt and lack of financial organization. I felt like my past decisions were holding me back from moving forward and growing my business. Anything relating to my financial future felt insurmountable.
Working with Ingrid was pivotal in reclaiming financial control in my business and life. I felt seen and heard. There was no judgement from her, but rather recognition and validation of my personal and business needs up to that point. She was fiercely dedicated to helping me frame my big vision and break that down to immediate action steps. She effortlessly moved between my business and personal financial needs and helped me envision how I could address both. She gave me the structure and the concrete plan I needed. She provided much needed accountability, support, and truly helped me implement the Profit First model in real life.
After a few months of implementing the Profit First model, according to our roll out plan, I realized I really did have enough coming in to cover my vital expenses, save for taxes, and aggressively pay down my debt. Three months into the process, I paid off my first ever student loan. Almost nine months in, I’ve paid off two student loans, two credit card bills, and I’m close to paying off a third student loan. I’ve also slowly increased my paycheck, to supplement our household income, and as a result, we can afford to send my 4-year old to preschool this fall. A year ago, I never would’ve imagined ANY of that to be possible.
As my work with Ingrid comes to a close, I feel empowered, organized, and responsible around my finances. I feel like I’m in charge of where my money goes, and as Ingrid recently told me, I’m literally doing everything I can to get out of debt. Knowing that is such a relief! - Tina Grinold, The Luna Way
The last two years have been really tough, financially. I came across the Profit First book when I was researching how to make my busines more profitable... and I found the Financial Mastery Series. It literally was like a lifeline and I couldn't believe the timing. It was exactly what we needed. We know we have a successful business. However, sometimes on a week to week it doesn't feel that way when we are at the mercy of our cashflow! This will change our lives in terms of business and then in turn our personal lives - no longer contstatley having work on our minds and worries over cashflow and bills etc and generally feeling out of control of it all. We are excited for the future of our new store and this journey to profitability. - Laura Boland
I LOVED your lesson on making space in our personal lives for what is important! Really spoke to me personally because in my heart I am a true workaholic and struggle to find balance and the “importance things “ all the time!! So thank you for your words of encouragement to find a few of those things that are important to me and make a list or plan on how to achieve those 😀 those things are so much more important than my business!!! I forget or lose site of that !! You're really are great at what you do and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with you. - Terrie Boesel
I was thrilled when Beth rolled out this program with Ingrid! We show a strong profit on our books by the traditional accounting method, though I don't always see that reflected in our cash flow, so I'm improving our systems to ensure success for myself or a future owner! - Heather Burge
While I have been in business for almost 9 years now, I admittedly am NOT a numbers person. It makes me uncomfortable and that is the main reason I NEED this program. - Ty Mc Brayer, Twirl Bridal Boutique
My degrees are in counseling - not finance. I am not known for being great with numbers. I have heard in the past it is best to know your weaknesses and go at them head on - so that is what I am doing! The Financial Mastery Program helps me to see and learn my mistakes, and to to better myself and my company now, instead of waiting until I am in a dire situation and not understanding why. - Heather Craft
I joined The White Dress Financial Mastery Series so that I could start off on the right foot. I want to learn from others who have already been in this business for years. And hopefully I can offer fresh perspectives as a new business owner. I also find financials very boring - I have a university degree in Business, but my passion was Marketing. I want to build more confidence when it comes to understanding the financial health and management of my business (and specifically in off-season cash-flow management). - Katie Bursy
I joined The Financial Mastery Series because now that we're actually turning a profit I want to be smart with my money. I want to be sure I'm properly funding the accounts I need to and watching the accounts that can be money sucks (inventory and operating expenses). - Autumn Parton
I own a bridal shop and am now part of the Financial Mastery Series. I have known for a few years why I have cash flow problems, much less, no profitability. So, I drew my line in the sand yesterday. I want to succeed and I am willing to do the work. Thank you for Profit First. I don’t think I would have been as brave without this group, so thank you. - Geri Cardinal
I joined The White Dress Financial Mastery Series for to better plan for inventory buys and account for the fluctuations in sales. I like being held accountable. - Lydia Doyle
We joined the program because we want to get a handle on seasonal cycles. Stressed out during the summer months and thriving September through March. We want to be profitable and learn how to get rid of our debt. We are excited to learn more!! - Krysta York
