A book that clarifies everything all the noise every young professional hears regarding personal finance.

Profit First by Mike Michalowicz

This product was recommended by Katie Ziskind from Wisdom Within Counseling

I highly recommend “Profit First” by Mike Michalowicz for personal and business finance. Mike shares an easy and accessible way of organizing your finances to make sure that you are saving for taxes well also making sure that you have enough for yourself. He talks about his story of going bankrupt and having to learn the hard way, but then creating a full proof system that any business owner can use on a personal level or business level to ensure that they are financially sound in all of their choices. Often times, people will spend every last penny that they make, but do not realize that they have to save money for taxes or expenses. Mike teaches business owners and those interested in personal finance how do use a percentage based system. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to learn about finances. I have heard Mike speak live and he is absolutely phenomenal.
