Meet the Author
I'm Barbara Nuss, CPA, creator of Profit Soup Online. I’ve spent decades teaching franchise executives, franchisees, consultants and emerging entrepreneurs how to master the numbers side of a business and make better financial decisions.
What makes my approach unique? I focus on the business owner, not on academic accounting concepts. I want my learners to make smart decisions that maximize profits and cash flow.
Plus, I want it to be efficient. Busy people don't have time to spend years or even months on classes. And new franchisees need to hit the ground running so they win the race to profit before their cash runs out.
Profit Soup Online was built with time and money in mind.
If you want to cut to the chase and gain the essential financial skills and insights all successful business people need, you've come to the right place.

Online Q&A with Profit Soup Instructors
“The online platform that Profit Soup uses is great. There were chat rooms and questions. You could see the leaderboard of who was advancing through the courses and who was getting things done. It became a little bit of an internal competition. It was very insightful when you're making corporate decisions to help a customer grow their business.”
