Cash management is an expansive topic and people dedicate their entire lives just to managing cash. You could probably teach an entire Master’s degree on just cash management.

But, in small (service) business, there’s a few slivers of cash management that cause the most problems and the most stress:

😓 Invoicing & follow up
😓 Revenue & profitability
😓 Savings & access to credit
😓 C
ash distribution

That last one – cash distribution – is regularly forgotten and underestimated. It’s not one of the cash flow big boys and only exists in small businesses so there is no traditional big business advice about it.

And, it’s just ignored. But, the act of paying yourself is unsuspectingly confusing. When you first started, it seemed obvious like – “Oh, I’ll just pay myself.”

You started your business to make money, after all. Even if you want to make a difference in the world, find greater job satisfaction, or have more flexibility, you need to make money. So, you just take it out of your business. What’s so hard about that?

Thennnn, you realized it wasn’t that obvious…

And, you have a lot of questions…

  • How do I pay myself?
  • Do I need a paycheck?
  • How much do I pay myself?
  • Is there a smarter way to be paying myself?
  • Can I just withdraw money whenever I need it?
  • How much money should I leave in my business?
  • Should I be saving for taxes?

(Free tip: Your business isn’t some sketchy ATM at a dive bar. You shouldn’t be sporadically hitting up your business accounts for $20 here or $50. If you areee, you have a cash distribution problem.)

Stop looking for the answer. Find it. Buy the ‘Learn to Pay Yourself’ presale.

Who is Michael?

It seems like everyone (and their mother) is a small business course creator nowadays. Why pick me? Why buy my course?

Because, I’m not really a business course creator.

I don’t babble in business buzzwords and cliches. I don’t pretend to understand business. I’m not gonna send you motivational pics I find on Instagram. And, I’m not loading this course with business platitudes and motivational quotes.

I’m an award-winning accountant and business advisor. I’ve been knee-deep in financials for years – helping clients make sense of their numbers and make tough decisions. I give real-world, in-the-trenches advice.

I’ve been called:

🧐 The Edna Mode of business advice
🧐 The Sour Patch Kid of finance
🧐 A less cantankerous David C Baker
(I don’t know who he is either, but he charges A LOT so I’m taking it as a compliment.)

And, the bulk of my income comes from working one-on-one with business owners. Not manufacturing courses for optimal profitability with upsells and trickery while providing you the minimum required value. (I just think it’d be kinda cool to have a few minimum courses 🤷‍♂️)

100% Money-back Guarantee

I’m so sure you’ll get your money’s worth that I have a 100% money-back guarantee. If you did the coursework* and feel like you didn’t get your money’s worth, just let me know and I’ll process the refund.

And, this isn’t a ‘minus the processing fees’ money-back guarantee or a ‘dodge your emails until you’re forced to get a chargeback’ money-back guarantee. But, a 100% no bullshit, money-back guarantee.

* that means you had to go thru, prepare the budgets, and watch a few videos

I have more questions…

I’ll get back to you soooon.
