‘Uncommon Sense – What Women Business Owners Should Do – But Don’t!’
(…when it comes to their money and their business!)
In our experience the reason most businesses fail is for 2 reasons; not enough customers and not enough money. Did you know that in business 5% is marketing and the other 95% is really dependent on your relationship to money?
Here’s our top 12 reasons why women entrepreneurs struggle with money:
1. Underestimate the importance of cash flow.
2. Underestimate costs.
3. Overestimate revenue.
4. Don’t understand your break-even point.
5. Don’t keep proper financial records. (Shoe boxes don’t count!)
6. Charge too little for your time, products and/or services.
7. Fear of raising prices. (Losing price-sensitive customers isn’t always a bad thing!)
8. Putting off asking for the order/sale.
9. Undercapitalizing the business at the start.
10. Ignoring the powerful potential of having a mentor or a coach.
11. Trying to do things on the cheap, IE: clunky websites, do it yourself accounting and doing everything yourself!
12. Not focusing on your core business challenges – driving yourself and everyone crazy by always chasing after the next shiny object. No goals.
If a couple of these resonated with you –
We’ve got answers to these money challenges!
I know that you’re a smart woman with a vision; you’re working hard – on and in your own business. The question is; are your dreams matching your results? Have you created the success that you had hoped for?
Consider this: Your life right now is perfectly structured to create the results you already have, and it’s not structured to create that amazing vision of yours. If it were, you’d already have it!
Success is predictable. Are you set up for success in your business?
It’s a fact that 80% of new businesses close down or disappear within the first 2 years of start-up. Yet at the same time, thousands of businesses succeed.
Now, more than ever, small business owners need to take a good look at the fundamentals of their businesses, and understand how they can improve performance, strip out any unnecessary costs and focus on the right strategy to survive and take their businesses forward. By identifying which areas require immediate attention business owners can prioritize their efforts.
To run a successful business there are key essential
steps that you need to take with your money.
Poor control of operating costs and internal management of your money is the #2 reason for business failure. (#1 is no customers!)
Entrepreneurs are not born; they are built through constant study and determination. Every small business owner goes through difficult periods. It’s during difficult times that you need to focus on the positive and keep your optimism working.
The main purpose of a business is to earn a profit through attracting and keeping customers. Profits are a measure of how well the company is fulfilling its purpose. Profits pay for everything; Wages, investments in new products, processes, research development, taxes, and all the constructive things that a company can do to serve its customers.
Your ability to make your company more successful and impact the profitability of your company is the critical determination of your long term success.
Did you start your own business to have all the freedom, flexibility, fulfillment, family-time, and fun that life has to offer? Or are you compromising the things you value the most because you’re not working with enough of the right customers, you’re having problems keeping yourself accountable, sales are down, or you just don’t have much free time to breathe.
