  1. Holy smokes! You did this podcast just for me!
    I heard Jason present this concept at last year’s dj conference in Vegas. I scribbled the book name and basic outline of the profit first concept. I do not have any business background and will be implementing this soon.

    Business has exploded for us over the last several years and we’ve struggled on the admin side. 2017 is the year to put plans and systems into place.

    I would live to sit down with Jason at MBLV next month!

    1. Hi Rick!

      I’m going to be there again this year, although I’m not speaking this time around. There’s so much going on, but we most certainly should connect (I believe I’ll be partaking in the Sales For Event Pros gathering on Wednesday of the conference).

      We can talk Profit First and about building systems to help you and your team do the things you love in your business… which probably isn’t the admin stuff!
