I recently started supporting someone who I know has many attributes of the kinds of women who are my ideal client. There are many ways to describe them, but to be succinct you can say they are women who are confused and challenged about money.
This was evident from our first conversation. All the things she shared were symptoms of money confusion and challenge. When we explored some of the potential for her future reality, many of the descriptions about what she wants to create as her normal are examples of what I call money freedom.
As this new client is a woman in business I had the added advantage of profiling her using the Thrive Factor profiling framework. This gives us both important insights into her money mindset and money behaviour. Knowing these parts of her and understanding their real and potential influence is a unique way I work with the Profit First system. At this point in time I am the only licensed Thrive Factor Coach® and Certified Profit First Professional in the world!
I know so much changed for me personally and in business when I first learned my Thrive Factor Archetypes and was able to understand parts of my mindset and behaviour that were innate to who I am. Deciding to become a Thrive Factor Coach® was an effortless decision because of my personal experience. Having this additional way to support my clients who are women in business makes a significant difference in the way I collaboratively support clients to implement Profit First.
The first focus for me in our first month working together is to work with her from where she is at. Starting from this place gives us an opportunity to understand her current reality so we know what we are creating from.
In the first month and first couple of sessions the focus is on what I call the foundations of our year together. This includes meeting her Thrive Factor Archetypes, setting up bank accounts, getting to understand the realities of her situation and clarity on what she wants to achieve in the coming year. Without this clarity what we do together moving forward could be reactive and unhelpful.
I believe it is essential to start with small steps and to get some wins on the board. This helps every client to feel like they are making progress and adds to their confidence that they can indeed achieve what they want.
We explore things like what can we action quickly to lay supportive foundations, whilst also considering the long term impact of all the things we are and will be working on.
Over the course of the coming year I will come back and share a monthly blog with you to give you insights into the way I am supporting this client, and the way I support all clients as they navigate the journey from money uncertainty to money freedom with my guidance.

I was lucky enough to get the help of Caroline to guide me through the progress of implementing Profit First. I was struggling with working out how to get all my figures into the right percentages, it was great to have the support and a guided program.
I am now able to put money in my vault and have now created profit for the first time in my working life.
My next focus is working towards having at least 3 months of money available, so I won’t go into a flat spin if we ever have another situation like Covid again.
I nearly lost my business and using this method with the support completely turned my life around. Thank you, Caroline, for the guidance I needed to make sure I put profit first!
