Laura Elkaslassy - Bookkeeper Profit First Professional Melbourne

Laura Elkaslassy

Founder of Adroit Business Solutions, Laura Elkaslassy, has over ten years experience in finance and bookkeeping, and she’s passionate about educating and mentoring her clients in developing skills to gain control their business finances, create a profitable and thriving business, and in turn create more time to work ON their business rather than IN it.

Laura thoroughly enjoys feeling proud of her clients as she witnesses their business successes while helping them to continue to make a positive difference in the world through their business.

Laura believes in the importance of doing what you love and sustaining a sense of fulfillment.

Having a fascination with doing things differently you’ll find Laura is most definitely a pioneer when it comes to the ways to work with business owners and their money. She’s proudly known as the Profit Pioneer because, as Laura explains:

“My mission and passion is to ensure solo and small business owners not only understand what is happening in their business but also that they make a profit.


I do this by guiding and teaching business owners how to implement innovative, practical and outcome driven strategies and solutions that are often at the forefront of money management and growth initiatives for small business.”

When it comes to money management Laura values sharing her life experiences and lessons, including her own experiences with debt and how she started again with nothing after living in Italy and Israel. Laura says:

“When talking about money and debt, it’s important to remove the feelings about it and emotion attached to it. It’s not so much the debt, but how it makes you feel. We get into a cycle of feeling really awful about being in debt or not having our money in order.


Once we’ve transformed how you feel and made a plan to sort out whatever is underlying your circumstances, then it’s all doable.


We’re all human beings and we need money to live. We need to learn manageable processes to use and conserve money so we can enjoy our lives and let go of money fear and worry.”

Laura’s Credentials & Industry Memberships

  • Registered BAS agent with the Tax Practitioners Board
