I am a convert. “Profit First: A Simple System to Transform Any Business From A Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine” will be here in less than a week, and for small business owners all over the world, not a moment too soon. I have had the privilege of reading an advance copy of this third book from author (and Provendus CEO) Mike Michalowicz, and the following is a summary of what I love about it.
Profit First is not just a book full of business theories and ideas (which are often hard to apply to real life). It’s a system. It’s a step by step guide to creating a real, consistently profitable business, month in and month out. And while there are a lot of variations in how companies run, Michalowicz does a great job in addressing those variations among industries and types of businesses, giving all small business owners a framework for growing a profitable business.
How do I know the system works? Because I’ve been using it for the past two years! At Provendus Group, we set up the Profit First system from day one. And from our very first sale, we started accumulating profit. And, since Mike introduced the concept to a workshop audience last year, we have heard dozens of testimonials from business owners who have used the system, and either created profits in their business for the first time, or increased their profits and income significantly using this method.
I know what you’re thinking. I bet you’re thinking something like: “I’m an entrepreneur. A creative. A visionary. I can’t read an entire dry boring book about accounting methods.” But this book is anything but dry and boring. Leave it to Mike Michalowicz to find a way to make a book about an accounting system interesting, poignant, amusing, and dare I say – laugh out loud funny! (I laughed, I cried….really).
