Why Your Business May Need It
Over the last year the importance of numbers has become a critical concern for every business.
Numbers are the lifeblood of your business. They paint a picture of what you did, what you’re doing, and what you could do.
Numbers are like maps that you can learn to use and follow – to get to where you want to go. They show the best paths to take and which ones to avoid – to identify your obstacles and your opportunities.
If you understand and use your numbers – you can set targets, measure and improve performance, adjust prices, margins and improve profits.
But people tend to fear business numbers or fail to make time for them. So they avoid them and miss opportunities to improve their business.
Using your numbers is a key business skill. Without it a business can stumble and fail to reach its potential or struggle to survive in tough times.
100 Day Numbers Challenge – will help you identify what’s working and what’s not working.
How the Challenge Can Help
Recovery & Sustainability
Like any business owner – you want a Successful and Profitable business – but today and in the coming months people are looking at Recovery and Sustainability.
Business dynamics have changed over the last year. Businesses are trying to work out the new rules as they try to become more entreprenneurial.
But what if you don’t have proper monthly accounts, financial forecasts, cash flow forecasts, information about your margins, product or service profitability?
What do you do next and when?
How do you create a plan when there seem to be so many questions with so few answers?
How do you create a forecast for one month let alone the next six months or twelve months?
Your numbers really are critical for Business Recovery and Sustainabilty.
