Why Profit Does Not Matter with Reginald Tomas Lee – 128
In this episode, Dr. Reginald Tomas Lee explains why cash and profit are not the same. Cash is the life blood of a business. It drives daily operational decisions. Profit, on the other hand, is a relative metric (not measurement), dependent on the cost formula chosen. Executives and managers need to understand the difference and when to use each one.

It Is Not About the Technology with Jody Padar – 124

Customer ReviewsSee All
Clear water clarity on how to price
Before Kirk, we charged for our vocal coaching services based on what others charged, and HOW others charged. We felt like a gallon of milk for sale at the mercy of price-shoppers. And they are the worst customers. Switching to how Kirk clearly advises is challenging but simple. And we have profited easily 4x, and have built relationships with some great customers-now-friends. Thanks Kirk!!! Glad the podcast is back.
