My Story

Ruth King is well known as “The Profitability Master.” She is passionate about helping small business owners get profitable and stay profitable.

Ruth is a serial entrepreneur having owned 8 businesses in the past 37+ years. One of her businesses, Business Ventures Corporation, began operations in 1981. Through Business Ventures, she coaches, trains, and helps contractors and others achieve the business growth and goals they want to achieve.

Ruth is especially proud of one HVAC contractor. When they started working together, the contractor was generating $750,000 in annual revenues. Less than 10 years later, the contractor was generating TEN MILLION DOLLARS in annual revenues with massive profits. Just a few years later, her client sold his business for NINE MILLION DOLLARS cash!

Ruth has a knack for helping business owners truly understand financials, and then apply their knowledge to fuel massive growth, income and profits.

After twelve years on the road and, doing 200 flights per year, Ruth knew there had to be a better way to reach business people who wanted to build their businesses and train their employees. She began virtual training on the Internet in 1998, and then launched the first television online broadcasting in 2002. Ribbon, the first online broadcasting network, began operations in January, 2007. Ribbon channels currently include HVACchannel.tv and Profitability Revolution.

She was the founder of the Decatur, Georgia branch of the Small Business Development Center in 1982. She also started the Women’s Entrepreneurial Center and developed and facilitated a year-long course for women who wanted to start their own businesses. This course was the foundation for one of the classes at the Women’s Economic Development Authority in Atlanta, Georgia.

More recently Ruth was the instructor for ICE, the Inner City Entrepreneur program in conjunction with the Small Business Administration. This 16-week course taught business owners with at least $400,000 in revenues (and many had over $1,000,000 in revenues) how to grow their businesses to the next level. A large part of the curriculum was aimed at improving and understanding the financial knowledge.

Ruth holds a Masters in Business Administration in Finance from Georgia State University. She also holds Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Chemical Engineering from Tufts University and the University of Pennsylvania, respectively.

Ruth is passionate about helping adults learn to read, photography, and running marathon races. She helped start an adult literacy organization in 1986 that currently serves over 1,000 adults per year, and she’s run the Boston Marathon and 9 other marathons so far…

Quick, enjoyable and most important, educational and practical.

As a Certified Fraud Examiner and private investigator, I appreciate this book. It is filled with stories of business owners who have become the victim of a fraud. I specialize in embezzlement and so many of the cases in the book I have seen before. I also specialize in pink collar crime aka women embezzlers. Many of the examples provided are about the trusted office manager/bookkeeper who took advantage of their position and stole from their employer. I recommend this book to anyone who has a small business. It’s a very quick read and provides many easy fixes for some of the most basic problems out there. It’s well worth your time and money.
