Publisher's Summary

From Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First, Clockwork, and The Pumpkin Plan, comes the ultimate diagnostic tool for every entrepreneur.

The biggest problem entrepreneurs have is that they don't know what their biggest problem is. If you find yourself trapped between stagnating sales, staff turnover, and unhappy customers, what do you fix first? Every issue seems urgent - but there's no way to address all of them at once. The result? A business that continues to go in endless circles putting out urgent fires and prioritizing the wrong things.

Fortunately, Mike Michalowicz has a simple system to help you eradicate these frustrations and get your business moving forward, fast. Mike himself has lived through the struggles and countless distractions of entrepreneurship, and devoted years to finding a simple way to pinpoint exactly where to direct attention for rapid growth. He figured out that every business has a hierarchy of needs, and if you can understand where you are in that hierarchy, you can identify what needs immediate attention. Simply fix that one thing next, and your business will naturally and effortlessly level-up.

Over the past decade, Mike has developed an ardent following for his funny, honest, and actionable insights told through the stories of real entrepreneurs. Now, Fix This Next offers a simple, unique, and wildly powerful business compass that has already helped hundreds of companies get to the next level, and will do the same for you. Immediately.

Includes exclusive author commentary throughout the audiobook and a bonus author interview at the end of the program.

Critic Reviews

"As a fellow business author, I rarely read anything in my own genre - but I make an exception for every one of Mike's books. I always go away feeling educated, challenged, and fired up to make improvements in my business. (I'm still not going to wear a vest, though.)" (Chris Guillebeau, author of The Money Tree and Side Hustle)

"Mike is a genius." (Don Miller, author of Building a Story Brand)

"Similar to the human body, a business has specific needs for it to grow healthily. Fix This Next explains the make-up of your business and how to pinpoint where its health it compromised." (JJ Virgin, author of The Virgin Diet)

Read this next!

Loved this book so much. Mike’s system makes so much sense, and is easy to use, but sophisticated enough to be relevant to all sizes of business. I wish I had thought of it! I’ve started applying a modified version in my charity, and it’s helping to cut through the clutter to identify our next vital need. Mike’s narration style might not be for everyone, but his passion and enthusiasm seem very authentic and engaging. Strongly recommend this to anyone in any sort of business - it’s a game-changer.

Business Bible

As someone who values the Bible as a source of wisdom, energy and life; my description of Fix This Next is high praise. MM and the Profit 1st system have revolutionized my contracting business All Star Painting from struggling paycheck to paycheck to a profitable, well respected service provider in Bismarck ND. For me personally, from a lonely, daily-grind drudgery, to an exciting and collaborative game.

Another great tool Mike

Always looking for quality business development improvements and tools. There is allot of junk out there, typically I rate quality by whether I will buy the hardback for my library. All of Mike's are on the self and looks like I'm ordering this one to.

Thank you Mike

As a young businessman that started my business with no business experience 3 years ago, this book helped so much. I just listened to it for the 3rd time in 6 months and we have made several changes thanks to you and your team. We are soon to start working on clock work and are eager to see what changes come out of that. You are a great author and I felt like you were speaking to me in a workshop. Thank you Mike, Sam

In summary - prioritise

A simple idea of prioritisation based on current situation. Mike writes/narrates in a friendly way - like you're a pal having a coffee with him.

Read this next.

I'm a big fan since reading Profit First. Mike intends this to be a "hub" so start here and go from there. Quite a short one this but to the point. the other books expand on different areas. graphics are freely available.

Brilliant

Read Fix This Next before profit first...I would also advise to keep the book, work on the first issue and go back to it. Too much information isn't helpful sometimes. Now onto clockwork.

Business Owners - Read This Next

I've been recommending Mike Michalowicz's books top my business choosing clients for several years, so naturally I was excited to see him come out with a new book just at the perfect time when owners are looking for guidance and clarity about what they should be focusing on and how to redirect their businesses for future success. I will continue to recommend Mike's books and implement his systems for profit and automation. You'd do well to do the same.
