In Profit First, Mike Michalowicz explains how to rearrange your company’s finances so that you start making money immediately—instead of waiting until the end of the month. He offers a system that requires companies to deposit money into four accounts: profit, owner’s pay, taxes, and reinvestment. Once these funds are separated, it becomes clear how much (or little) business owners need to keep their businesses running and generate income for themselves. With straightforward explanations and accompanying visuals, Profit First allows business owners both new and old to understand financial statements without needing an accountant on retainer. And most importantly, readers can implement this innovative approach in as little time as possible with minimal effort .
