Business is a numbers game.
It is essential to know your numbers so that you can maintain focus and have visibility on what is going on in your business.
So are your numbers up to date?
If you know your numbers, you will know where you are at in your business.
Your financial numbers are able to signify several necessary things about your business. They will tell you whether your sales income is on track, whether your costs are under control and how financially successful your business is at any moment in time.
If your numbers are not up to date, it is if as though you are running your business blind. Imagine driving a car with a blindfold around your eyes – you definitely should not be doing that; this applies to your business too.
Your visibility on your business is firstly through your financial numbers, so you need to ensure that they are up to date. It is only when they are up to date that you will be able to manage your business effectively. For example:
- You will know if your sales income are reasonable and enough to achieve the profit you want.
- You will know where things are at with your variable costs; if you are paying your suppliers too much.
- You will know if your overhead costs are under reasonable control.
- You will know where your profit is at most importantly; an ultimate indicator if you are doing well in your business.
