Yes, I know, we have never had a “Business Woman of the Month”, but i was so impressed by Ellen’s work (and personality) that I decided that maybe we should start one.
I recently ran across Ellen Rohr’s “Bare Bones” Business site. As I was looking around, I was really impressed by the number of top quality of resources she puts out for small business owners. Plus, it’s fun! Once you see her videos, you’ll quickly get a sense of her high energy, quirky personality, her sharp mind, and her sincere desire to help other small business owners. Ellen also runs a great blog and brings great guests to her site to share their thoughts as well.
Who is this lady? The short story is that she was able to turn her family business around after almost sinking it! After she sold it for a pretty penny, she ‘retired’ to a country farm and decided to share what she had learned with others. For 13 years she has been doing just that through Bare Bones Biz, a training and consulting company.
Whether training for a marathon, training other small business owners, or just setting the pace for them to succeed, Ellen puts her heart in everything she does.
What does she do? Here is what she says about it:
“I teach the basics, the simple disciplines that can take your company from flab to fit. I’ve written three books on business basics, Where Did the Money Go? – Accounting Basics for the Business Owner Who Hates Numbers, and How Much Should I Charge? – Pricing Basics for Making Money Doing What You Love and The Bare Bones Biz Plan – a simple Plan for creating a winning business.”
In addition to her books, her training program and her business plan software, Ellen offers a bunch of free resources to help out with your business. Webinars, podcasts, blog posts: you name it, she’s got it.
Recent Webinars include:
- Crafting a Winning Business – How to Create a Bare Bones Biz Plan
- How to Sell to SELLfish pPeople.
- How to Seek and Eliminate NEGATIVITY in your Company!
Recent Podcasts series include useful topics such as:
- Setting Sight

I’m so glad I got to find out about this awesome woman, and share some of the great stuff that she’s doing with my readers..
