#88 – Managing Your Web Design Business Finances with Rocky Lalvani

Today I’m sharing a candid conversation about finances with certified Profit First Professional and Profit Answer Man, Rocky Lalvani. He teaches business owners how to ensure they get paid and make profit a priority!

Rocky specializes in teaching entrepreneurs the crucial skill of making sure we get paid and prioritizing profit in our businesses. As a certified Profit First Professional, Rocky uses Mike Michalowicz's Profit First System to transform the traditional accounting formula from Sales – Expenses = Profit to Sales – Profit = Expenses.

This simple flip ensures that profit takes the front seat right from the start!

Rocky and I talk about:

  • how to manage your business finances
  • how to make forward-thinking financial decisions
  • how to price for profit
  • how to navigate challenging financial periods in your business.
