I met Mike Michalowicz (pronounced mi-'kal-ō-wits) at the Gathering of Titans at MIT years ago. I have to tell you he is one of the coolest guys I know. Yeah, he’s CEO of Provendus Group, a firm that ignites growth in companies.  He’s written four best-selling books (Profit FirstSurgeThe Pumpkin Plan, and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur). He hosts two podcasts: the Profit First Podcast and Grow My Accounting Practice. I can hardly keep up with him as he travels around the world all the time to speak. 

But what I really love about this guy is the way he looks at success and purpose. He believes that success comes with a better understanding of ourselves, not with a better plan. And that we should use our profits to live out what we define as our purpose in life in the biggest way possible. That really resonates with me.

So I’m really excited to share with you that in early May I’m going to be interviewed for the 200th episode of Mike Michalowicz’s Profit First podcast. By May 14, you should be able to catch the broadcast on Mike’s website or on iTunes or Stitcher.

Meanwhile, if you’re in the mood for some inspiration, I suggest you grab a few minutes to watch Mike’s two TEDx talks on Profit First and The World’s Best.
