The concept of “profit first,” as written in Mike Michalowicz’s book, Profit First, is based on Parkinson’s Law with principles derived from healthy lifestyle habits. Mike’s philosophy is that business owners and entrepreneurs should deduct their profits from their revenue first, then their salary, then finally, their taxes. Anything left over after these deductions should be used toward business expenses.
In this episode, I tell you why I believe the “profit first” concept is a bad idea for entrepreneurs who want to grow their online businesses quickly. I also share the strategy I used to build a highly successful online business that broke each principle of the “profit first” concept.
