  • Episode 25: Interview With Profit First Author Mike Michalowicz 00:00


I am so excited to put this out in the world. As many of you know, I have become a Profit First groupie and have totally shifted my business finances and expectations since reading his book. I went from not taking a profit in my business to taking the profit I should have been taking all along within months. It was a total game changer and shifted how I look at money. If you haven’t already read his book, you should!

Have you been struggling with how you manage your business finances?

Do you feel like you have no understanding of where your business finances are going and what your profits are?

Have you read the Profit First book and totally fell in love with the system and want to hear from Mike about how to implement this in our industry?

In this episode, I interview the author of the Profit First book, Mike Michalowicz. In this episode Mike:

  • Goes over a group practice owner’s profit first assessment and gives feedback (see PDF below to follow the interview)
  • Explains profit first
  • How niching is key to increasing profits
  • Talks about how to implement profit first in your personal life
  • How to redefine an industry by being a profit first business and changing the rules
  • It’s not about only cutting costs, its about increasing margin too!
  • How Mike uses Profit First in his personal life
  • His biggest piece of advice for people starting off with Profit First

The show

The podcast is structured so that you get practice building tips in small doses, where an episode can be listened to (and a group practice building lesson can be learned) in a single car ride.

Episodes are structured into categories: coaching sessions where I coach a group practice owner on a specific topic, tips of the day by yours truly, real talk where you get to be a fly on the wall while an established group practice owner and I talk about the highs and lows of ownership, and trainings done by experts in the field.
