LuAnn and Nancy Ganzekaufer Ah-Ha Moments:

“Using the Profitability Analyzer will help you see where you may still have a weak spot or service model that you are currently selling over and over again thinking that it’s great, but isn’t actually viable for you to make the money you need to make.” – Nancy Ganzekaufer

“The only way we actually know that we are consistently pricing for profitability is if we are consistently reviewing the projects.” – LuAnn Nigara

“Once you start running your business by numbers, you’re going to run the business like a CEO, not just by emotion.” – Nancy Ganzekaufer

“As you grow your company you have to consistently keep learning.” – LuAnn Nigara
