Meet Your Professor: Tena Mason

On a Ledger is located in bustling downtown Wichita, KS, at the historic Orpheum Theater building and owned by Tena Mason. After she spent three years in public accounting as well as time working in the private industry, Tena set her sights to focus on each of her client’s success. She realized she could better do this being self-employed and started On a Ledger. Tena soon found she could target and attain client success through using a strategy called “Profit First,” and soon set herself apart from the rest as a certified Profit First Professional on top of offering traditional CPA services.

If you read Mary Shelley’s classic, Frankenstein, you know exactly what I’m talking about. e good doctor reanimated life. From mismatched body parts, he stitched together a living being more monster than man…

How Profit First Works
