Profit First

Ciara knows your dirty little secret: you're running what you feel is a successful business, but you're not seeing any profit. She'll help us understand how Profit First works for inventory based businesses. In doing so, you'll see a clear path toward profitability.

Meet the Speaker

Ciara built a seven figure retail business, was featured in "Entrepreneur" magazine, and was even invited to the White House. But in over ten years of business, she never took a consistent paycheck.

Ciara knew how to sell, but she didn't know how to manage the money once it came in. And then...she learned the numbers. She now understands what the numbers are saying and knows how to focus on the right things.

Ciara has coached thousands of inventory based business owners, helping them free themselves of debt as they grow profitable, sustainable businesses. 

Ciara's a serial entrepreneur, a wife, a mom of two, and a triathlete. She loves a good challenge and isn't afraid of messes.

As an inventory and cash flow expert, Ciara knows how to take an honest look at where your business is and listen to you as you tell her where you envision it to be.

Email Campaigns

As a busy product-based or e-commerce business owner wearing all the hats, chances are you know email and text marketing are important tools for growth, but somehow they always seem to fall to the bottom of your ever-growing to-do list. They’re like a dreaded, looming grey cloud you just can’t seem to keep up with—or start in the first place! Liz Whitehead will show us that there is relief when it comes to email and text marketing.

Meet the Speaker

Liz Whitehead, founder of Simple Strategies Group, works with inventory-based businesses to create and automate email and text marketing. Her clients can sleep easy knowing their current and potential customers are being effectively nurtured, 24/7. Liz takes the stress off her clients' plates when she sets up and maintains these marketing systems.

Liz is on a mission to help product based business owners like you reclaim your time and freedom through automated marketing systems, so you can get back to doing the things you do best (and enjoy most)! Why? Because as a former boutique owner of ten years, she's been in the trenches of a product-based business ownership, and knows first hand how hard it can be to find someone who genuinely gets what you’re going through.

Liz searched and searched for a product-based digital marketing consultant who could help her move the needle, but continually came up empty. So, she decided to do something about it. After just two years and hundreds of happy clients, Simple Strategies has become the go-to partner for solid email and text marketing that connects with customers and boosts the bottom lines. Now it’s your turn.
