Profit First is a cash management system created by New York Times bestselling author and small business expert Mike Michalowicz.

Profit First teaches business owners to take a portion of every sale as profit first, rather than following the traditional method of accounting for profits only after expenses are deducted. To get started with the Profit First method, business owners can quickly and painlessly budget for profit, taxes, owner’s compensation, and operating expenses with preset suggested allocations all in one NorthOne Account. NorthOne’s Profit First Envelope* template simplifies this process and helps business owners take control of their finances right away.
