What is Profit First?

Profit First is a results-driven and time-tested cash management system that helps you keep the most of every dollar you earn from every sale you make. It creates guardrails for your money so there’s always profit and you’re never stressed about making payroll or paying your expenses. No more second guessing yourself or spending hours Googling tough financial questions.

How we got where we are today.

Shannon Simmons is Fit For Profit’s founder and CEO. As a business owner, she knows what it’s like to face challenges and feel overwhelmed by business finances, from childhood and beyond. Her passion for helping small business owners comes from a time when, as a practicing accountant and bookkeeper, she couldn’t pay her own tax bill. As a result, she decided to overhaul her business starting with the foundation: the financial system.

Today, she has gathered a group of professionals who are just as passionate about you finally finding your profit.

For us, business is always personal.

Talking about money can feel scary and vulnerable. After all, it’s been a taboo subject in our culture for decades. That’s why we’re committed to having personal relationships with each and every client. We love getting to know your business, getting in the weeds, and finding out what will truly make your business thrive all on its own. The end goal is for you to feel less overwhelmed by your finances so you can focus on what you do best: support your clients.

We’ll support you through it all.
