First book of the year done! This is one of my once/year reads and now that I'm finished, it was the perfect way to start the year. My business has grown a lot since the first time reading #ProfitFirst and every time I read the book, I get another task or two to fine tune my business finances. Shout out to @mikemichalowicz!
Last year, I read a lot of business/finance books. This year, for every professional development book I read, I'll read/listen to a biography and a personal development (things that can help me improve my self awareness, spirituality, communication, etc.) book.
What are you reading?
Getting sales in your sleep means doing the work when you’re awake.
People chasing easy money.
Forgetting that when you see people who are successful and are living the life they want to live, they have put in the work to reflect that.
Now I am not a fan of the word hustle everything that word implies.
But I DO believe in putting I the work to get the results you want to.
If you don’t put in the work to get the results you want...don’t be surprised if those results don’t appear.

Heerlijk, zoveel als hier de zon vandaag scheen. Het was lekker fris buiten. Maar een extra laagje kleding doet wonderen.
Mijn dag afwisselend ingepland met ruimte om te werken maar ook om buiten te genieten van de zonnestralen.
Even wat energie ‘opsnuiven’ 😁

#FRIDAYINTRODUCTIONS are here! 🙌🏻 It’s me, Alyce [like Alice in Wonderland]. My new latest guilty pleasure is #splittinguptogether and I hate admitting it because smart people read books. 🤦🏻♀️ But I’m also reading #profitfirst so that cancels out my late night #Hulu watching. Right?!

Myth Buster: All you need is a good product.
There is no better way to bust this entrepreneurship myth than to delve into the story of Sega’s Dreamcast. A pioneer of the time, Sega introduced the world to 6th generation gaming. 128 bit consoles, online gaming, innovative games and displays in controllers. Despite being a better console, Dreamcast succumbed and was discontinued 2 years after its conception. What brought this marvel of technology down to its knees? For starters it was the PlayStation II. Despite being a less impressive console, Playstation 2 had an inbuilt DVD player and a strong existing customer base. Offering the possibility to reuse games from Playstation 1 made users remain loyal to the Sony console. What happened to the rest of console users? A poor marketing campaign, disagreement between Sega’s inner circle and a lack of support of game giants like EA and Squaresoft journeyed Dreamcast into the abyss.
Don't forget to add below what you think about this business development myth.
I haven’t made a post since last year!!! Lol
I did a bunch of small jobs last week and I started a big painting job this week. I’ll put some pics of that up when it’s finished.
In the meantime, I’ve been reading this and it’s eye opening. The business/accounting side as always been my weak point. This is helping me get my house in order so I can be more profitable this year and beyond. .
Y’all, where is the sunshine? ☀️ If you are living in Tennessee I’m sure you’re wondering where it is. It seems like everyone has been moody (maybe lack of vitamin D 🤷🏻♀️) and tons of people around us are getting sick 😷.
So, we’re over here getting serious about gratitude!
It’s so easy to fall into the negative energy that is around you, but if you write down what you’re grateful for and then look for all of the little blessings throughout the day, YOUR gratitude will serve as a shield to ward off negativity✨🙌🏼💓
Who is with us?! 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏾♀️🙋🏻♀️👩🏻🦰If you don’t already have one, choose your gratitude journal today. (Link in our profile)
“Making your company more efficient is about more than just fixing extra coffee breaks and redlining your experiences. .
Serving the same types of clients with the same or very similar problems and perfecting your solutions so you can use them consistently to fix their problems are two routes of efficiencies.”

I met @mikemichalowicz 10 years ago at a @savorsuccess event. Back then, his book, #thetoiletpaperentrepreneur had been recently released. I had never heard of him, but after hearing him speak and the fact that he combined potty humor and business - I was an instant fan! Remember @simplychickie when we first met Mike? 🚽
Fast forward to 2014 - when his book, #profitfirst came into the world. Basically, this book blew my mind. I knew I wanted to become a Profit First Professional. And in July 2017, I did exactly that. 💰
I attended #profitcon in 2017 and was blown away by the amazing @profitfirstpros community. To boot, it is one of the few conferences where I actually reference my conference notes post-conference. Among those notes from last year were elements of Mike’s newest book, Clockwork. #queenbeerole
If you can believe it, ProfitCon 2018 was even more exceptional. Speakers were awesome, vibe was cool, ahh there were #foodtrucks and Mike’s #ChuckWoolley impressions were just as amusing as they were the last year.
So of course, before I left ProfitCon, I asked Mike to signed my #clockwork book and then I asked if he would boomerang.
And of course he said yes! #highlight
What are the things you look for in a conference? What is your go to conference?
