“It's not only about making money, it's about keeping it”
- Bruce Campbell
Every business owner and entrepreneur wants to increase their profit, the difficulty is working out how! Most business owners find it hard enough to keep pace with all the changes and innovations going on in today's modern world, let alone to find the time to devote to sales, marketing, systems, planning and team management, and then to run their businesses as a profitable enterprise as well.
Profit isn't something that can be stumbled upon, it is achieved by aligning your financial planning, business goals and strategies to the current market trends and operations. Primarily the average dollar sale (turnover) and margins need to be worked on to produce more profit. Actions taken to improve turnover and margins will invariably improve profit.
Profit Margins are critical to profitability. If a business is a fast growing, without acceptable profit margins, all growth efforts will be for nothing. It is critically important that business owners not only know their overall margins, but they must also know them by product or service type.
Another critical area is understanding the business’s financials. Knowing the numbers allows a business owner to investigate more thoroughly and truly know your costs. After reviewing how to cut down these costs, then devise a budget, set the targets then adhere to the budget.
Whether its learning to read the numbers, finding opportunities for improving profits in a business or identifying the critical components of a business that need to be measured, Global Business Coach, Bruce Campbell, works with startup businesses, business owners and entrepreneurs to interpret where their business is at financially, and how to get to where they want to be.
