Bullet Proof Profit Model
Profit Engineering is based on the premise that profit should be the first line item to be addressed, not the last line item to be accounted for.

Sales – Expenses = Unknown profit until books are prepared; what’s left over essentially!

Sales – Profit = Expenses; so long as expenses are controlled!

Paul’s message heard around the world speaks to the concept of creating a business environment of Engineered Profit. This business model requires a change in thinking from Residual Profit to Planned Profit expectations.Typically business awaits the word from their CPA or bookkeeper on the month’s profit or loss statement. This would be residual profit as it is what remains leftover after expenses are paid.Simple : Revenue – Expenses = Residual Profit or LossThe Planned Profit Model utilizes daily operational metrics that are measured, monitored and managed. This business model ensures that when operational metrics are met so too are the profit projections.Simpler : Revenue – Profit = Planned ExpensesRauseo explains, “You choose the business model you want for greater success predictability.” Paul is often heard asking management “Are you tired of eating leftovers?” What Paul Rauseo Talks About:
