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.

What the critics say

"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)

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.

Recommend getting the physical book on this one

I love listening to Mikes books because his narrating is so great, but this one covers too much to do it vocally with no handy aid and figuring out how to download the printables was harder for this book than the others.

I didn't feel like rewinding to find the correct URL and it's not stored in Mikes normal free resource list and the questions asked at fixthisnext.com turned me off.

Overall the framework seems solid (although it was hard to really do the assessment using audible). But I didn't gain a ton of insight since I have a framework of my own I use for myself and my clients.

That being said, if you don't have a framework and want to use one from a well established expert, give this one a try. It won't take you long and if you learn great things you didn't know before it's well worth it! And actually you don't even need to read the book, you can just do the assessment.

Good Listen

This was not one of my favorite books by Mike Michalowicz but I can totally see the extreme value. One thing I did love about this book was how much Profit First was talked about. I highly recommend this book to every entrepreneur and business owner.

Great book!

Would’ve given it 5/5 if accompanying material was included in this version instead of having to visit the website to get them
