Fix This Next by Mike Michalowicz

Fix This Next

Imagine having an effective system to know exactly what you need to do to get your business pass any obstacle or ‘plateau’. It may seem like there are always fires to stop, but the truth is they aren’t all crises.

  • Learn how to immediately identify what needs to be done and what can wait – it isn’t always what your gut is screaming at you.
  • Address the crucial element – that often solves other seemingly separate issues that were really symptoms of this underlying problem.
  • Systematically repeat this process to simplify your business – and your life – as you begin to move swiftly and unwaveringly toward your vision.

This is the method we apply to our clients’ businesses – and our own!

Surge by Mike Michalowicz

Surge

The COVID-19 and quarantines have turned every market on its ear. Identifying the resultant new market trends will be the key discriminator between which businesses survive – and which ones don’t.

Mike Michalowicz’s Surge shows business owners exactly how to find where consumer demand has shifted, and how to get in front of it.

Profit First book by Mike Michalowicz

Profit First

All business owners want profit but far too many don’t build it in to the DNA of their businesses, seeking more sales and not understanding how they are running their business into the ground.

The Profit First method aligns accounting with human behavior with four simple principles that serve to:

  • make accounting and managing your business easier
  • allows you to take your profit first
  • dramatically increases the value of your business
  • sets the necessary foundation for achieving long-term growth

We use the Profit First method in our business and we strongly recommend that you do too!

The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur by Mike Michalowicz

Clockwork by Mike Michalowicz

Clockwork

So many business owners never find their way out of the trap of their own making – a business entirely dependent upon them showing up day in and day out, at risk of falling apart without the keystone of themselves being continually present in the inner workings.

Clockwork shows entrepreneurs how to structure their business to run itself, transforming it from a life-crushing job into a lifestyle-supporting asset.

This is the roadmap to finally making your business work for you.

Need help? This is exactly what we do!
