Mike Michalowicz

By his 35th birthday Mike Michalowicz had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies. Confident that he had the formula to success, he became an angel investor…and proceeded to lose his entire fortune.

Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Among other innovative strategies, Mike created the “Profit First Formula”, a way for businesses to ensure profitability from their very next deposit forward.

Mike is now running his third million dollar venture, is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal; is the former MSNBC business make-over expert; is a popular keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics; and is the author of Clockwork, Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, which BusinessWeek deemed “the entrepreneur’s cult classic.”

In his session, Profit First: How To Make Any Business Highly Profitable, By The Very Next Deposit, Mike shares a new approach to profit – taking it first – that instantly changes everything. With this simple yet profound change, any business, will become instantly and permanently profitable.

With robust education, valuable networking and an innovative expo all in one place, this event is not to be missed!
