Profit First - A Book Review


In his book "Profit First", author Mike Michalowicz discusses a simple yet effective way for business owners to ensure that their business is profitable. The Profit First system is based on the idea that businesses should allocate a certain percentage of their revenue to profit, rather than using all of their revenue to cover expenses.


By following the Profit First system, business owners can significantly increase their chances of generating a profit. In addition, the system can help business owners to better understand and manage their finances.


How Does the Profit First System Work?

The Profit First system is designed to help business owners allocates a specific percentage of their revenue to profit, as well as the other costs in the business. The system works by having business owners first set aside a percentage of their revenue for profit, before covering any other expenses.


For example, let's say that a business owner has determined that they will allocate 5% of their revenue to profit. If the business generates £100 in revenue, the owner will first set aside £5 for profit. After setting aside the profit, the owner can then use the remaining £95 to cover  other expenses, including setting aside money for taxes, the owners take home pay and finally the business operating expenses.


The Profit First system is designed to help business owners change their mindset about profitability. By allocating a specific percentage of revenue to profit first, business owners will be more likely to focus on generating a profit. This change in mindset can have a significant impact on the overall financial health of the business.


"Profit First" is a must-read for any small business owner who wants to improve their financial health and increase their chances of generating a profit. The Profit First system is simple yet effective and can help any business owner to better understand and manage their finances.
