ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

Meet the dynamic duo behind the whole Profit First idea.

Mike Michalowicz

Co-Founder &
Author of Profit First

By his 35th birthday Mike had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies. Confident that he had the formula to success, he became an angel investor…and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. He devised the Profit First strategy to ensure that any company would experience profitability from their very next deposit forward.

Mike is the author of Profit First and other must read business books. He is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal, a popular keynote speaker and a globally recognized entrepreneurial advocate.

Ron Saharyan

Co-Founder & Managing Partner

It took twelve minutes and thirty two seconds, give or take a millisecond. Ron and Mike debated how to help businesses that were seeking financial fortitude. Mike had the fix: Profit First. Ron had the plan: Profit First Professionals. After their twelve minute discussion the decision was clear, the Profit First Professionals organization was to be created. Having built multiple companies in the staffing industry, Ron leads our membership of world class accountants, bookkeepers and business coaches who guide entrepreneurs to the highest degrees of profitability.

Ron has over 15 years experience in managing organizational growth, is a thought leader in business cash flow management and is a popular speaker on the topic of, you guessed it, profit.
