A Deep Dive Into The Book (10:57)
Part One of the book is titled Get Your Barings which is made up of four chapters that elaborates on the foundation that we are all busy. Every time I would hear a response of someone being busy I wanted to know what the hell they are so busy doing. Because if everyone was truly that busy we would all be very productive and have our houses paid off, no car payments, and out of debt. So somewhere there is a disconnect between all this motion and not a return on our activity. From there I talk about getting your financial longitude and latitude in order and really drilling down on where you are and being honest. At the end of Part One I give you your way out and show you how to commit to a new way of thinking.
Part Two I get into the nitty-gritty and I walk you through setting up a system. I walk you through the basics of what cost of goods sold are and get into the specifics of what those are exactly. I walk you through the four kinds of expenses which are traditional cost of goods sold, time, things forgotten, and overhead.
Part Three is when you really start coming up with exactly how much it costs to serve your clients or produce your product and you do that by retroactively taking three of your past products and/or clients and practicing.
profitfdPart Four I explain how you put it all into place and really use the principles and use them going forward to make a huge difference in your business.

Notable Quotes From The Book (22:53)
“Stop being busy and start creating cash.” – Marley Majcher
The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (0:37)
This book basically came out of the need to solve my own problems as a business owner. My core business is event planning and I currently run a company called The Party Goddess. We handle social and corporate events as well as weddings and travel all over. I wrote this book because my business life looked very glamorous but I was not making any money. I now run an online consulting company where I help small business owners.
The inspiration came out of frustration and the fact that I felt like I had a dirty little secret which was this glamorous business on the outside and in reality it was sort of a mess under the hood. I started researching for answers and ended up coming up with my own system that I wanted to share with others that were in the same trouble as I was.
