Now more than ever, business owners need a reality check. As we see the economy flattening and businesses struggling to stay afloat, "Profits Aren't Everything, They're the Only Thing" is a wakeup call for the 23 million small businesses across America who need to get their business fundamentals in order. George Cloutier reveals 13 no-nonsense, tough-love maxims that small businesspeople may not want to hear at first, but will thank him for in the end. Among his controversial (yet proven!) ideas are: forget teamwork, micromanage like crazy; pay raises are over; fear is the best motivator; and, if your business fails during a recession, it's your fault. His contrarian message, regular media appearances, thriving business, and growing speaking and consulting platform are all testament to his successful philosophy at work. And despite his in-your-face message, Cloutier is a charming figure who's earned the right to give such candid advice through years of hard work and tremendous success with his own small business.

A must read for all small and midsized business owners." -- Tom Cochran, CEO and executive director, The United States Conference of Mayors "This slim but forceful debut by turnaround management expert Cloutier serves as a wakeup call for small business owners who have been hit hard by the recession... Cloutier's book is loaded with valuable advice on how to get back on track and stay in the black in any economic environment." -- Publishers Weekly "Packed with client examples and a no-nonsense attitude. Many of his regulations will amaze, shock, and awe small-business owners... Harsh ways to work? Yes, yet all his principles are founded on a success that's hard to argue with." -- Booklist
