LTB 11 | Making Business More Profitable

How to Become Permanently Profitable with Mike Michalowicz

What if, rather than you serving your business, your business served you? What if you could turn a profit from your very next deposit? And what if you had the power to guarantee that profitability?

In this week’s episode of the Let’s Talk Business podcast, serial entrepreneur and bestselling author Mike Michalowicz shares his simple cash-management solution that helps businesses break the day-to-day struggle for survival and become permanently profitable immediately—no matter their size, industry, or how much debt they carry.

  • How to flip that “Frankenstein Formula” and take profit first without compromising your business
  • How the Profit First system invites innovation, supports sustained growth and reverse-engineers niche specialization to access those “riches in the niches”
  • Practical step-by-step tips for how to radically change the financial health of your business from your very next deposit.

If you’re ready to transform your business from a cash-eating monster to a money-making machine, check out Mike’s interview below!
