Xact accounting came highly recommended to us from members who were experiencing success on their CFO advisory program. It complemented our TPB Growth Accelerator, Profitable Projects and Boardroom programs and principles so we knew we had to get in touch.

Daniel is a weapon.

He’s one of the few accountants that actually get’s our industry.

Diligent with the numbers, but plays both defence and offence. Helping to remove mistakes by building reporting while also helping to improve financial results into the future.

Coupled with our programs, and the operating system we provide, we love working with our members who are also working with Dan.

We’ve done workshops for members together on a number of occasions.

You can find replays to some of them below, but here’s what’s usually covered.

  • “Finding the Bottom” and getting out of the sh!t when cashflow, profits and margins are not where they should be.

  • How to correctly prepare and close down for Christmas without killing your cashflow and running out of money.

  • How to run “Profitable Projects” with clear reporting and analysis. ++ More that our members can find at

Get the replays and many of the resources below. When you get in touch with Dan, tell him we sent you and he’ll take good care of you 😉

We’re stoked to call Chris a supporter and friend of The Professional Builder since almost the very beginning.

We’ve teamed up and helped builders on more than 10 separate occasions over the last decade to improve their systems and processes from a site to office to procurement perspective all with the goal of saving builders time and money when it comes to working with a supplier and merchant.

During Covid, when material price rises and delays were common, Chris was a massive help guiding our members and answering questions in the community.

  • How to deal with material delays
  • What to do when material prices skyrocket
  • How to best work with your merchant when growing fast
  • How to best work with your merchant when you’re in the shit
  • What a great client to a merchant looks like and how you can be that to get the best results

++ Many other conversations are in the members community at
