In this episode…
Even before the global health crisis, 83% of small businesses lived paycheck-to-paycheck and client-to-client, leaving promising entrepreneurs with barely any profit at all. Over their decades of experience, Mike Michalowicz and Fran Biderman-Gross have each theorized different ways that business leaders can survive and thrive in the face of adversity.
The intriguingly controversial title of Mike’s famous book, “Profit first,” does not intend to place profit before people or purpose. Instead, Mike’s wise advice is to flip the classic accounting equation and put profit before expenses. Both Mike and Fran agree that purpose drives profit and passion plays a pivotal role in success. In Mike’s own words, “the biggest determinant of success is how determined we are to have success.”
Join these two successful entrepreneurs and authors as they discuss the cyclical relationship between profit and purpose and what it means for your business. Stay tuned.
