About Us

Predictable Profits focuses on building and shaping entrepreneurial breakthroughs through customized business coaching and actionable content.

With more competition and noise than ever before, we’ll help you stay ahead of the competition with clarity, direction, and feedback in a way that’s uniquely guaranteed. It’s almost unfair to call us “business coaches” because we like to think we’re more than that. Perhaps a trusted advisor, mentor and an integral member of your growth team.

We do things differently.

We didn’t take a few courses and read a few books on growing a business – then proclaim we’re experts. Our experience is rooted in a combination of overcoming spectacular failures in creating extraordinary companies.

The founder of Predictable Profits, Charles Gaudet, developed these business growth systems, strategies, and technologies while traveling the world studying billionaire and centi-millionaire entrepreneurs trying to answer the question:

“What’s the difference between the business owner enslaved to his business working 80 hours a week and another business owner working half as much but making 10-times more money?”

Charles Gaudet

The answers were inspired by entrepreneurial geniuses like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Warren Buffett and dozens of business people you’ve never heard of before…

He found the similarities supporting the Fastest-Growing Companies in the world and combined them into a methodology now known as “Speed to Scale.”

Today, Predictable Profits has helped entrepreneurs in over 55 industries achieve greater success. The company is leading the industry for service-based entrepreneurs wanting growth and predictable profits.
