Fix This Next


Building the Architecture

Not unlike your business, mine started with an idea and the right resources. Very early on, I met Mike Michaelowitz. He's the author of many great books and the founder of several certification programs which have added incredible value to my business, and more importantly to our Better Business Better Life Program. If you haven't heard of Mike, I strongly urge you to get to know his work—especially with his new book (insert drumroll here), Fix This Next.

While he has published several books over the last couple of decades or so, The Pumpkin Plan and Profit First provided a strong jumping-off point for me and my business. Not only do I incorporate these methodologies in my own practice, I believe in them so much that I became a Certified Pumpkin Planner and Mike's very first Profit First Professional. Now, I have the great privilege to say I am a “Founding Fixer” as Mike launches Fix This Next (April 28, 2020). This book and our certification is an immediate value to our Better Business Better Life Program and we can't wait to get started!

The Business Hierarchy of Needs

Fix This Next offers a simple system to eradicate these frustrations and get your business moving forward, fast.  (Image is taken from Fix This Next.)

Through his journey and research he figured out that every business has a hierarchy of needs, and if you can understand where you are in that hierarchy, you can identify what needs immediate attention. Simply fix that one thing next, and your business will naturally and effortlessly level-up. I can't wait to share more about our experience in utilizing Mike's tools to help every client build a “Legacy” business.

What does this mean for Tap the Potential? As The Business Psychologist™, I am so excited to help entrepreneurs to proactively manage entrepreneurial burnout.

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
