Mike Michalowicz is the entrepreneur behind three multimillion-dollar companies and is the author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan and what BusinessWeek deemed the entrepreneur’s cult classic, The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur. Mike is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal and the former business makeover specialist on MSNBC. Today Mike travels the world as an entrepreneurial advocate speaking to groups just like aftermarket professionals. He is globally recognized as the guy who “challenges outdated business beliefs” and teaches us what to do about it.
Carm Note: I loved this book and believe it should be required reading for all aftermarket professionals if you own a shop or not. The principles in this book will help set you free from the ‘I’ve run out of cash and I can’t pay myself’ syndrome. Mike’s father-in-law is a shop owner so he does understand the challenges of our profession. I’ve heard from your industry peers who have implemented ‘Profit First’ and they are well on their way of making the kind of profits indicative of the investment they make in their business. Make Profit First a way of doing business. You deserve to be incredibly successful but you must implement this system or something similar to control your spending. You’ll soon find where your weak area is, yet still profit from your hard work.
