<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.

The carousel method makes use of visualization and the right brain’s capability for holistic thinking. This allows you to naturally comprehend and memorize what you’ve read.<br /><h2> <b> Works even during long reading sessions</h2> </b><br />The carousel method makes full use of the right brain hemisphere (something which is totally neglected with many other speed reading techniques). Hence the brain’s full capacity is engaged during reading which results in significantly higher reading-endurance.<br /><h2> <b> Sustainable results with the easy-to-use carousel method</h2> </b><br />Although utilizing sophisticated findings from neuroscience the method itself is broken down into an easy and actionable step-by-step process.<br /><br />Because theory without practice is worthless, we incorporated some reading exercises where you can put the method to the test and measure your reading speed. <br />This book will finally give you the tools and step-by-step advices you need to sustainably speed up your reading speed and increase your comprehension.<br /><u> <h2>So, don’t hesitate, scroll up and click the Add to Cart button. </u> </h2><br />
