Profit First Advisory

Do you know the real health of your Business?

Are taking your PROFITS out of the business FIRST?

We have found that many of our business owners' pain points are getting a true sense of their business’ health. This major challenge causes business owners many sleepless nights because they don’t fully understand what their numbers are telling them about the profitability of their business.

And it’s no wonder: Financial service providers have historically presented business owners with three different computer-generated reports each month but minimal instruction on how to interpret them or advice on what they need and how to use them.

Even if you do understand your profit and loss, balance sheet, and cash flow statements, these statements reflect your company’s history and NOT where you are right now and definitely NOT where you are going. You are basically trying to move your business forward while gazing in the rearview mirror…not a wise strategy when the road ahead of your business is full of twists and turns. Wouldn’t it be great if you could see what opportunities and risks lie ahead of you?

Another problem with the way small businesses have received their financial reporting is that they utilize a traditional approach based upon accounting standards and not insights and take-aways and don’t focus on a solution for the number one problem most businesses have: A lack of profitability and effective cash flow management. Instead, they add more financial noise, not clear about what to do next.

Business owners need an easy-to-use system that answers these three questions:

Can your numbers tell you an objective measurement of the health of your business?

How do you use this data to drive your business forward?

How can you intentionally drive profitability in your business while making sure you never run out of cash?

We have a simple and elegant solution: the Profit First method for running your business.

What is Profit First?

Profit First is a behavior-based cash management system that works with your existing habits instead of forcing you to form new ones. If done correctly, saving money will feel even better than spending it. Most importantly, once fully implemented Profit First not only guarantees your business’s profitability but also ensures you are compensated fairly and that you never have to sweat making your tax payments on time because the funds are automatically set aside every month.

The Profit First concept is documented in the bestselling book Profit First: Transform Your Business From a Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine by Mike Michalowicz, this methodology has been implemented successfully by more than 600,000 businesses worldwide and has been read by over 1 million readers, and translated into 23 languages.

Our Profit First Story

When we first researched the profit first process and methods of tracking KPI and running a business, we were intrigued and eager to try it for ourselves so we could experience it as the client would.

Our Profit First implementation started last year and we have doubled our operating profits by focusing on what is most important.

What it means for you

Although the Profit First methodology is conceptually simple, the devil is in the details.

You could read the book and go it alone, but there’s a lot to be said for working with a partner who knows both your personal and business goals and will hold you accountable when the going gets tough. Additionally, there are subtle nuances to the Profit First system that, when leveraged, can make Profit First an even more impactful growth tool for any business at any point in its development.
