Proven Success

The Numbers Don’t Lie

Your financial statements speak to you each month!  Do you know how to listen?  Do you review your profit and loss each month?  If the answer is no, you are putting yourself at risk.

Many business owners are so focused on day to day operations and not looking at financial statements. The Profit and Loss (P & L) is one of the most useful tools in running a business.

The P & L tells business owners what it costs to do business, but it cannot tell them what it should have cost. Too often even moderately successful people cannot tell with surety which and how many of their products or services lost money, or why it was lost. Nor do they know how to stop the profit leaks.

 

 

YOU MUST LEARN TO MANAGE BY THE NUMBERS

“You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” – Peter F. Drucker

  • Are my sales on target as to projections?
  • Are my COGS in line?
  • Am I controlling expenses?
  • Is there anything left?

Starting and growing a business takes commitment and time, a lot of time! The number one thing you can do is keep a constant eye on the numbers and where you are in your plan. Define your key performance indicators early and monitor weekly in the beginning.

Tracking your progress effectively will prevent catastrophic consequences before they materialize.
