Mike Michalowicz

Today we have an absolutely incredible guest for you: prolific business author, podcaster and speaker Mike Michalowicz. Mike has a brand new book out called Clockwork that’s all about creating a business that actually runs itself and keeps on earning you money, even when you’re sipping drinks on the beach. If you’re running a business, or planning to launch one, this episode and Clockwork will absolutely get you on track for sustainable, scalable success.

Mike Michalowicz is the entrepreneur behind three multimillion dollar companies and is the author of Profit First, Surge and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur. Mike travels the world as an entrepreneurial advocate. He is globally recognized as the guy who “challenges outdated business beliefs” and teaches us what to do about it. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Mike’s Profit First Podcast, which you can find at mikemichalowicz.com.

We talked about: 

  • Our worst plane experiences (Mike's was scary, mine was ridiculous)
  • Mike's mission of eradicating entrepreneurial poverty
  • How entrepreneurs often get stuck in survival mode
  • The secret sauce behind effective delegation (it wasn't what I thought!)
  • How to identify your company's "Queen Bee Role"
  • Why our egos get in the way of scaling our businesses
  • Why sitting in your parked car every day can change the trajectory of your business(!)
  • And so much more!
