Nev Harris shows agency owners where the profit is hiding in their business.
He has owned an agency the last 7 years and owes a lot of his success to the supportive WordPress community. The “profit guy” started as a passion project to give back to the community but at the urging of several friends morphed into something bigger.
He has the fancy degrees and the started with the suit and tie job but found that to be insanely boring. It’s his down to earth take on finance for the tech world that has led to him being featured in numerous national media outlets. You can say he is the guy they call when they want to talk money without putting the audience to sleep.
See, money talk doesn’t need to be scary. Or boring. Or something you do behind closed doors with an accountant who appears to be speaking another language.
It is the key to unlocking the profit trapped in your business and lowering your stress around cash flow and expenses.
On a personal note, he’s shockingly single with no kids. He does have a dog, Romeo but his ex-gf took him saying something like it was her dog because she bought him three years before they met. Romeo and he disagree but she seems one hell of a lot bigger than 5 foot when she is explaining this so their love goes unrequited.
What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
The community. I've made some of my best friends through WordPress and feel blessed to be part of such an amazing group of people.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
The interesting conversations that happen in the Slack. It is always full well thought out discussions with respectful people. SO kind like the anti-FaceBook…haha.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
Having the right framework to quickly assess your agency's financial health will change your personal and business life. It will give you insight into what happened, why it happened and what's going to happen. In other words, you have a powerful tool to make better, more profitable decisions with less stress.
