Growth 1776 Profit Engine
Before / After CAAP

Before CAAP… The Helpful Rule-Minder

“FASB ASU (Accounting Standards Update) 2016.02 will require that all leases with a term of over one year be capitalized effective for years beginning after 12/15/2021. 

I need to redo your balance sheet.”

After CAAP… The CEO Whisperer

“I noticed that your top salesperson by revenue is in the bottom quartile by profit. 

Is your compensation system driving unprofitable activity?”

The CAAP program changed how I looked at measuring the success of a business. The program has not only vastly improved my business acumen and advisory skills, but it has provided me with more opportunities for business development at my firm and strengthened the portfolio of services that I can deliver to my clients. The program has provided many top-tier advisory tools and models that have allowed me to differentiate myself from my competition, by being able to provide advisory services that challenge companies to think differently about their business and get to the root causes of their problems, and truly help those companies manage and grow their business and improve overall profitability.

Sitting through the CAAP training by Growth 1776 this past summer changed the definition of an advisor for me. It made me realize that I was focusing the majority of my time advising my client base on all the wrong key indicators for a successful business. We are taught in our industry (public accounting) to diagnose the health of a business by revenue and gross profit growth. While these are important to a thriving business, CAAP takes advising back to the basics through key principles and fundamentals the Growth 1776 team outlines in their program. After the first and second training sessions, a part of my brain that I was not using seemed to turn on. There is no other way to explain it. The way I think about my clients’ businesses and the way I now pose questions to my clients since the program has ended has been noticeable to the point my clients are picking the phone up more and being more proactive than reactive on their own businesses. The competitive advantage I feel like I now have after this program is incredible.
