The bottom line is the bottom line.
There’s no where else you can go, but there, to see if your business is healthy. You can lie to yourself, ignore the facts, even run from the truth. Year after year there is one place you will always come back to: your bottom line.
The question is will you be standing, laying down, or even worse, sitting on it?
There are three kinds of people.
The first type, when tax time comes around, finds them self standing strong on the years end. They have established their business and success with risk taking, and investment, based upon sound principles, and execution of cutting edge marketing strategies. These two elements have created a strong backbone, and a sturdy frame. This business person is standing straight up, and looking forward to the following year thinking about all the opportunity that lies ahead.
The second type is lying down exhausted and barely breathing. This business person is battered, and bruised, and wore out from a year that absolutely abused them. They feel like a freight train just plowed through their bank account, and their front door, because of the risk and investment that flopped, and was unproductive. They lost money they invested in the wrong areas of their business because they had no consultation and no direction. However, this person had a will to win, and a desire to succeed. With the right alliances they will do better next year, because they are not a quitter. They will try again, and end up achieving the goals they set out to achieve initially. This type knew what they had to do, and swung at the air and missed. But at least they swung.
The third type is the one who is found sitting on their hands. This person is scared. This person is only willing to do what’s safe. They grew their business 3%, not much better than keeping their money in a savings account. Problem here is, their children started school, and everything in the world went wrong this year with everything else except the business. The finances weren’t there to support the blows and the expenses that life brings . This type struggled just as much as the second one in different ways. They will always be looking back wondering what they did wrong, thinking they did everything right. They recall all the opportunities they passed up because they weren’t willing to take the risk. They have regret, and more problems than ever before to deal with.
