Ellen Rohr almost sank her family business. She assumed She knew enough about business to run a dinky little plumbing company. After all, she had spent about $100,000 of her parents' money on her college degree in Business Administration. In fact, she graduated at the top of her class. Still, she didn't know how to balance a checkbook! She got involved in her husband's company after his partner died unexpectedly. Boy was she humbled! It seemed like lots of money was moving through the company, but at the end of the month there was never any money left. Thankfully, she found a mentor, a savvy plumbing contractor. Frank Blau wrote a column in Plumbing & Mechanical magazine. She wrote to him and asked for help. He took her under his wing, and taught her how to keep score in business. He taught her how to read and use financial reports. He taught her how to make money. Using this powerful, but simple lesson, she started Bare Bones Biz- a training and consulting company - in 1995, to help folks turn their big ideas into successful businesses. She teaches the basics, the simple disciplines that can take a company from flab to fit.
