You’ve been in business for a while now and things are going well. But at the back of your mind there is always that doubt lurking that perhaps you’ve missed something and your business is not as robust as it seems.
Financials are not your core skill set and quite frankly you never want them to be. But you would like to feel in control of the cash flowing through your business. You would like to be able to read a set of financial statements for your business and know what story they are telling.
You’ve been in business for a while now and you’ve learned to juggle all the different things you have to do to keep it afloat.
There has been steady growth and you are in a good place. So you feel the time has come to put some systems in place to take the pressure off you.
You are earning enough to be able to afford to outsource more of the work and you want to make sure that you get the right team using the right systems to give you the right numbers at the right time.
You would like to feel in control of the cash your business is producing and confident that you are in fact in good shape financially. You think you are but there is always that nagging doubt that you are missing something.
As well as that you’re sick of your accounts always being in a mess, always late and when you finally get the reports who the hell can read them anyway – they may as well be in a foreign language. In fact you’re relieved your business has blossomed in spite of how little you understand what you accounting system spits out.
Its time to put in place some robust financial management systems and principles that will stand you in good stead for future growth and your longevity in business. And once they are there and working perhaps you will feel you can actually take that holiday you have been talking about for so long.
