Living By Your Wits are the stories and insights from my career as a CPA and consultant to small businesses. It started back when I created a financial workshop—“The 3-Day MBA”—for small business owners intent on understanding their financial statements.
That workshop contained many stories from working with my clients. Those stories led to a small business “advice column” in the Sacramento Business Journal that ran for several years under the title “The Profit Process®.”
The initial workshop and the columns morphed into a series of “small business know-how” workshops that built on each other; covering the arc from a sole owner “start-up,” to a business with a “value stream” that allowed for its sale, when the owner was ready to move on.
Now these columns and workshops have become the source material for Living By Your Wits, a book of case stories, tools and a discussion guide for owners and advisors to small business owners. You can read the first chapter by registering here:
