Business in the front, party in the back

Mike, Kelsey and J-Capone are absolutely hilarious. I love the goofy games and the back and forth banter. The tone of the podcast is super fun! Do you ever follow someone on the internet and you just know you would be awesome friends in real life? That’s this crew.

The business portion of the podcast is always fantastic and adding value to my business life. I have a retail floral and gift shop so there is a lot of seasonal swing in sales. It can be hard to maintain steady profits. Mike’s books are incredibly helpful for keeping the ‘main thing the main thing.’ The podcast is an amazing resource for leadership, money, employee relations and personal growth.
I never miss an episode. Thanks guys!
Soooo when I am getting invited to be friends? I’ll bring tequila!

Great Buisness advice

Hey Mike, thanks for all the great advice for Buisness owners. I am in the Drywall Buisness and need all the help I can get. I’m implementing some of your strategies from Profit First but it’s hard here in Alberta, Canada right now.
Since the oil price drop four years ago it’s been very challenging to keep my business going.
A lot of competition and price slashing 😬
I have separate accounts for my Profit (1% for now), taxes and materials which I never had before. It really helps me focus on allocation of funds where they should be. When the economy geo turns around I hope to be able to save and pay debts a lot faster using Profit First.

Thanks again for all the great guests on the Podcast 👍🏻😊
