<b>Author of cult classics <i>The Pumpkin Plan </i>and <i>The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur </i>offers a simple, counterintuitive cash management solution that will help small businesses break out of the doom spiral and achieve instant profitability.</b><br /><br />Conventional accounting uses the logical (albeit, flawed) formula: Sales - Expenses = Profit. The problem is, businesses are run by humans, and humans aren't always logical. Serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz has developed a behavioral approach to accounting to flip the formula: Sales - Profit = Expenses. Just as the most effective weight loss strategy is to limit portions by using smaller plates, Michalowicz shows that by taking profit first and apportioning only what remains for expenses, entrepreneurs will transform their businesses from cash-eating monsters to profitable cash cows. Using Michalowicz's Profit First system, readers will learn that:<br /><br />· Following 4 simple principles can simplify accounting and make it easier to manage a profitable business by looking at bank account balances.<br />· A small, profitable business can be worth much more than a large business surviving on its top line.<br />· Businesses that attain early and sustained profitability have a better shot at achieving long-term growth.<br /><br />With dozens of case studies, practical, step-by-step advice, and his signature sense of humor, Michalowicz has the game-changing roadmap for any entrepreneur to make money they always dreamed of.

What about having not to have to work at all? Just try and imagine how it would feel to be able to wake up whenever you want and to do ANYTHING that you desire. Do not waste your time being a slave. Working constantly and barely having time to do anything else is not living. That is merely existing.<br /><br />Having multiple passive income streams is the number one key to wealth accumulation!

Day after day passed by and I followed the same exact same routine day in and day out for a very long period of time. During the last few months of me constantly working like crazy for someone else, I began to think. I began to think about what I was actually doing. I kept thinking to myself ’’Do I want to do this for another 40-50 years?’’. ’’Is this what my life is going to be about, constantly working until I’m old and grey for a salary that barely lasts a month’’. <br /><br />It was not until I discovered this thing of having multiple streams of passive income that everything changed. To be honest, at first, I thought it was just another money-making scam. I thought why would anyone share information on how to create wealth and get rich? Even though I did not really believe any of it, I still decided to give it a shot, and trust me when I say this: IT WAS WORTH IT. At that time, there was no one in the world that could possibly convince me that you could earn money for months and even for years while relaxing on a beach somewhere. <br /><br />I’m aware of the fact that money does not make you happy, however, money gives you freedom. It gives you the freedom to do anything you desire. It gives you the freedom to spend your time on what is important to you. It gives you the freedom to be with your loved ones. Yes, money alone does not make you happy but all the things you are able to do when being financially free, that is going to make you happy.<br /><br /><b>Note: This book on passive income is no get-rich-quick scheme! No matter what field of work you are in, creating wealth takes time and effort. This book, however, guides you through proven strategies that are guaranteed to work!</b>

Now the best-selling book of its kind has gotten even better.This revised and expanded second edition of Ittelson's master work will give you that firm grasp of "the numbers" necessary for business success.<BR><BR><P>With more than 100,000 copies in print, Financial Statements is a perfect introduction to financial accounting for non-financial managers, stock-market investors, undergraduate business and MBA students, lawyers, lenders, entrepreneurs, and more. Most introductory finance and accounting books fail either because they are written "by accountants for accountants" or the authors "dumb down" the concepts until they are virtually useless. Financial Statements deftly shows that all this accounting and financial-reporting stuff is not rocket science and that you can understand it!<BR><BR><P>Ittelson empowers non-financial managers by clearly and simply demonstrating how the balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement work together to offer a "snapshot" of any company's financial health. Every term is defined in simple, understandable language. Every concept is explained with a basic, straightforward transaction example. And with the book's uniquely visual approach, you'll be able to see exactly how each transaction affects the three key financial statement of the enterprise. Two new major sections with nine new chapters were added to this revised second edition of Financial Statements, simply the clearest and most comprehensive introduction to financial reporting available.
