Hi 👋🏻

I'm Lori Hardtke!

My Mission

Hi, I’m Lori!

I’m a dreamer. As a kid I dreamt of running my own business. Started out with a paper route, then sold crafts and eventually started my own IT Managed Services Business in 2008.

The instructions that came with starting my business didn’t mention I would have to work the equivalent of 3 jobs and practically work for free. Sound familiar? (Hint…there are no instructions!)

There were many highs but seemingly more lows. I worked my butt off day in, day out trusting that some day, all this hard work would pay off.

My profit & loss statement would show a decent amount at year end, but where was that money? While I rarely had any debt, I still struggled for years to make a decent salary.

Fast forward to today – I have a successful, profitable solo MSP business that pays me 6 figures with fewer clients, less headaches AND more time to enjoy life now, every day!

It also allows me time to help other struggling MSPs like you, learn how to make a few simple financial changes that will change your professional and personal life forever!

My mission is simple: To help business owners of any size, eliminate debit, prioritize profits, provide clarity, and reduce financial stress. To help you build a business that serves you, your customers, your employees, and your family.

Dedicated to Your Wealth, Health & Happiness,

Lori Hardtke

Does Any Of This Sound Familiar? 👇🏻

  • You run your business paycheck to paycheck
  • You, the business owner, don’t pay yourself a respectable salary if at all, or you wait until the end of the year to see how much profit you made
  • You don’t want to learn or understand how to read your financial statements
  • You see a decent profit at year end (from your Profit & Loss Statement) but wondering why that amount of money isn’t in your bank account
  • You keep thinking you just need “1 more big client” or “Better PSA, better tools” or “A sales person, another tech, etc.” and then the money will come pouring in
  • You want a sustainable, profitable business month after month, year after year
  • You want your staff (W2 and/or 1099) to have a vested interest in the success of your business
  • You want to be insanely profitable!
