    The Profit First Framework

    The Profit First Framework

    What does it actually mean to run a profitable business? Matt breaks down how he uses the Profit First accounting model to manage and allocate money made in his online business. Matt explains how he divides up his business revenue into certain Target Allocation Percentages and how this framework has helped him: 1) Pay himself more money as the business owner, 2) build up an account with reserves in it, and 3) have more than enough saved up for taxes every year.
    Matt and Andrew talk about how they pay themselves from their businesses and make sure they have enough of a buffer for lean times. If you've ever looked for a better way to divide up the money your business brings in, this episode is for you. Enjoy!
    P.S. You can see and download Matt's Profit First spreadsheet on YouTube.

    Low Competition Gold Mines

    Low Competition Gold Mines

    Does low competition equal instant success? Matt just wrapped up his experiment to launch a podcast in a low-competition category. The goal: trying to naturally rank and gain listeners where there's no competition. Spoiler: it didn't work. So when does focusing on low competition categories work in business? Why are Andrew's low-competition niche sites taking off but something like Matt's podcast doesn't? Matt and Andrew debate when low competition pays off and when it's not worth the pursuit. Enjoy!

Bittersweet

It’s worth a listen if you’re either curios about online business or if you’re the sorta person that finds yourself talking shop all the time. But, if you’re just getting started like me they’re having issues that are probably over your head which can be motivating (hopefully).
