Lynn Mattice has been working in the accounting world since the early 80’s. She was told in high school to go into computers or accounting. She wanted to be a teacher. She is now all three. After graduating high school in 3 ½ years, she began her career in the bookkeeping department at a bank at the early age of 17. After college at University of Florida, her first job was as a Junior Accountant at a public company with 5 subsidiaries. After many years in the corporate world and in CPA firms, she started her own business in 1999 providing bookkeeping and accounting consulting.
Lynn has an outgoing personality with a sense of confidence. She loves to share her knowledge and help others. In 2015, she became a Certified Profit First Professional and won an award for being the “Giver”. This was awarded to her because of her sharing her experience and knowledge with others so freely.
At Profitcon (Profit First Conference) in 2016, she saw Nat Measely on stage from The Fun Dept.. She was so excited listening to Nat and a huge light bulb went on. Fun and Profit! She recognized what she had been doing for years… using her fun loving, creative and solution oriented natural abilities to help clients get profitable in a more enjoyable way. That was when she coined her signature concept: More Fun, More Profit.
At the conference, the attendees were asked to write down a wish and post it to a wish board, and someone at the conference would choose your wish to help you with. Lynn’s wish was to start a public speaking career. Mike Michalowicz (Author of Profit First), granted Lynn’s wish. He gave her great ideas and insight on starting her speaking career.
Lynn started speaking publicly in 2017, spreading the word of “More Fun, More Profit”. The speaking engagements are educational, interactive and fun for the audience. Lynn believes in the facts that incorporating fun into a business culture can help your bottom line. And, of course, she also believes in the process of utilizing Profit First in every business.
