Turn a Profit Through Clockwork | Mike Michalowicz 032

Balancing behavior and addressing lines at work might be difficult for others. In today’s episode, Mike Michalowicz sits with us to share how he did it. He also tells us the steps on how to make your business run itself.

“Life is meant to be enjoyed, and I hope that business and employment in a business facilitate that enjoyment of life.” – Mike Michalowicz

Turn a Profit Through Clockwork | Mike Michalowicz 032

Mike is the author of Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan, and his newest release Clockwork. He is a former business columnist for The Wall Street Journal and a business makeover specialist on MSNBC. He also founded and sold two companies — one to private equity and another to a Fortune 500.

Over the years, Mike has traveled the globe speaking with thousands of entrepreneurs. Today, he is running his third multi-million dollar venture, the Profit First Professionals.

Balancing Behavior towards Success

Most of the entrepreneurs focused on productivity and it’s interesting how Mike found joking around important. For him, his people found it as the grease for gears in their organization. It builds this great bond by letting them to be themselves.

As business owners, paying for a significant amount of time and effort in knowing and in allowing people to be people are important. Mike is now focused on the human side and that balance increases the productivity, happiness and enjoyment of his people.

“The more that we allow people to be people, the more relaxed they are with their work.” – Mike Michalowicz

Addressing Lines

According to Mike, we should inspire all to have more kindness. Sometimes, other people may take advantage of what we show them. If things went a little too far, we need to be in the position to call it out by using the correct wording in what we want to say.

“The reward and recognition went to the effort, not the result.” – Mike Michalowicz

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
