<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.

CFO SERVICES: A Practical Guide for Accountants<br />Accounting firms have typically provided a range of ‘after-the-fact’ compliance and write-up services and have typically done alright financially providing these services. However major innovations in technology and a changing business client demographic is placing pressure on accountants to change their business model. Business clients are looking for more from their accountant, and the traditional model of basic score keeping will be difficult to maintain. Instead those firms providing more comprehensive, timely and useful information to their clients are enjoying significant growth.<br />In addition, as the economy becomes increasingly more specialized, business owners are looking to outsource those functions that while important, don’t add value to their bottom line. In fact they recognize the importance of bringing in experts for areas outside of their core competency. One such area, especially for small and medium sized business, is the accounting function. Accountants are perfectly suited to not only advise their clients on accounting systems and processes, but with the right business model, take it off their hands completely.<br />This step-by-step guide will show you everything you need to get this division up and running in your firm quickly. It includes:<br />- Numerous case studies that highlight best practices and common traps to avoid<br />- Pricing and positioning guidelines<br />- Tips for getting the team on board and the picking the “right” clients<br />- Comprehensive checklist, proposals and sample level agreements.
