Podcast Archive


Alex wants to challenge you to go through an exercise that has saved him nearly $5,000 in recurring monthly expenses. The book, Profit First, was a game changer for Alex’s business and on this week’s episode; he shows you why. Stop focusing on the top line, and place that focus on the bottom line!


Key Takeaways:

  • The book, Profit First, has been revolutionary to how Alex runs his business.
  • You should have five accounts in your business. Alex breaks down what each of these five accounts does.
  • In the book, you go through an exercise where you print out your Profit & Loss statement (P&L), and determine if the expense contributes to profit, can be replaced with a cheaper alternative, or can be completely eliminated. 
  • Alex printed out his P&L from January 1st, 2019 till now and marked down all the unnecessary expenses or cheaper alternatives his business could use. It wasn’t a fun exercise, but he’s saved $4,700 in monthly recurring expenses.
  • Eliminate the things that are not necessary for your business.
  • Remember, bigger isn’t always better… BETTER IS BETTER!
  • Don’t have a P&L? Print out your bank statements.
  • Alex reads a couple of pages from the Profit First book.
  • Alex’s challenge to you: How do you get 2X the results with half the effort?
