Episode 24: Profit First with Susanne Mariga, CPA

For many entrepreneurs, there is a tendency to serve others first with profit treated almost as an afterthought. But this is not a healthy way to run a business.

In this episode, I am bringing in a Profit First certified professional. Susanne Maringa is a certified public accountant, certified tax coach, and a chartered global management accountant. With over two decades of experience, Susanne helps her clients achieve their financial goals through business and personal tax planning. She does this by designing unique Profit First based business plans with her clients that help ensure success and long-term financial stability. Susanne is also the best-selling author of Profit First For Minority Business Enterprises, which focuses on how to apply the Profit First principles.

In this episode, Susanne shares how she started her career in accounting and eventually built her own firm. You will hear the story behind her book and why she chose to focus on the Profit First principles. Susanne will share strategies that you can use to increase your business profits. 



“We need to make sure that we are being intentional about running our businesses and getting the results that we want.”

“Taxes are going to be a consequence of success. It’s not something to run from, it’s the other side of the blessing.”

“There’s a lack of jobs and opportunities and the way that we really change neighborhoods and change the dynamics of social economics is by creating jobs.”

“If our businesses aren’t healthy then we’re better off getting a job, and that’s not winning.”
