“Profit is not an event. It’s a habit.”
― Mike Michalowicz, Profit First: A Simple System To Transform Any Business From A Cash-Eating Monster To A Money-Making Machine
“So, I am going to sound super vulnerable right now. Thank God we started a tax savings… I went from paying nothing in taxes last year to $18,483 this year….”
This was a quote in my email inbox today from a client who started working with us because she read the book “Profit First.” She believed the author, Mike Michalowicz, when he said, “Profit is not an event. It’s a habit.” She chose Prosperity Bookkeeping not only because I read the book but also because I successfully implemented its principles in my business and the businesses of several clients. I wrote a blog post in May 2019 talking about the success of the Profit First method. It has only gotten better since then.
As I stated in Part 2 of this series, if there is anything good about uncertainty, it is that it forces us to look for alternatives in case things don’t go as expected. This is where growth and change are born. So, what better time than now to stop hoping for profit and start planning for profit.
In a matter of weeks, the coronavirus outbreak changed our world. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the virus. It seems that no one will remain untouched by the outbreak.
However, I am committed to helping clients and non-clients alike during this time. I am offering free advice about how to survive what will hopefully be a temporary disruption or setback for your small business. Here is one important step you can do this weekend to help soften the blow of these uncertain times.
