And for some magical reason people start to take it far more seriously.

It is a pretty cool "power." If you want to get a point across, and have people seriously value it, put it in a book.(less)

It may sound strange... but when I am struggling to write, I simply give myself a break. I have an advantage of owning (and being on the board) of multiple companies. So when I can't write, I dig more and more into my work. And it is in that work that I get inspired to write more.

Another trick is to read more. I LOVE reading. And when I struggle to write, I read more. There is lot's of inspiration there.

That's it for now... I am off to write, ironically.(less)

Mike’s Likes – Fiction for Entrepreneurs and Life of Pi, by Yann Martel



Business owners, you need an escape.

I read Life of Pi, by Yann Martel. And an escape it was. But first, I want to explain why reading fiction is crucial for the development of entrepreneurs and small business owners. 

Running a business can be all encompassing at times. Ok, most times. You need a breather, and something to feed that soul of yours. When I want to escape, I read a good fiction book.

Profit First by Mike Michalowicz
“Putting your nose to the grindstone is a really easy way to cover up an unhealthy business. We think that if we can just work harder, longer, better—if we can just hold out—something good will happen one day.”

Profit First by Mike Michalowicz
“Small, repetitive, continuous actions, chained together, build momentous momentum”

“All revenue is not the same. If you remove your worst, unprofitable clients and the now-unnecessary costs associated with them, you will see a jump in profitability and a reduction in stress, often within a few weeks. Equally important, you will have more time to pursue and clone your best clients.”
Mike Michalowicz, Profit First: A Simple System To Transform Any Business From A Cash-Eating Monster To A Money-Making Machine

“A financially healthy company is a result of a series of small daily financial wins, not one big moment. Profitability isn’t an event; it’s a habit. WHY”
Mike Michalowicz, Profit First: A Simple System To Transform Any Business From A Cash-Eating Monster To A Money-Making Machine

“Action is the only way to make progress. Take action now; don’t wait for a convenient time. It can’t be overemphasized.”
Mike Michalowicz, The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur
