The need to market and sell one’s products and services is obvious. Without making any sales, there’s no money to manage.
If you need to learn about marketing and selling, the available resources are seemingly endless.
In contrast, learning to keep more of what you make isn’t as simple. Fewer resources exist and the unfortunate news is that we have found those resources are frequently incomplete, misleading, confusing, impractical, and often inaccurate.
By reading this eBook, you’re taking an important step toward understanding practical principles for building a sustainable business that is more profitable and valuable.
The Smart Business Money Habits self-assessment tool: Identify where you are on the business money mastery learning curve and understand what you need to learn about next.
A lack of financial understanding and financial management practices makes it difficult, often impossible, to successfully operate a business. This leads to barely surviving at best and failure at worst. Neither condition serves the entrepreneur and his/her family well.
We believe all business owners should have a basic understanding of financial principles and terminology to increase their odds of success. Our mission is to help entrepreneurs become successful by introducing financial management and discipline to their businesses. We’ve dedicated ourselves to educating independent business owners and entrepreneurs about sound business financial concepts, principles, best practices, and tools.
We have identified the best practices of the most successful businesses that we’ve worked with and learned from. We’ve distilled them into what we call Smart Business Money Habits and grouped them by level of financial sophistication and order of application.
We created the Smart Business Money Habits Challenge as an educational tool to introduce these Smart Business Money Habits. In less than 10 minutes, you can gain an understanding of where you need to focus your attention and resources to better manage your business finances.
Great, but practically-speaking, how does one do that?
The common answer is “better marketing.” But better marketing is only one part of the equation. Better business money management is the key.
However, using financial accounting software is NOT business money management.
Effective business money management means using your financial results to inform and guide business strategies and decision-making.
For entrepreneurs who are starting out, struggling to grow beyond survival, or are already successful and want to operate more profitably, we created the More Profit Toolkit family, consisting of the Basic More Profit Toolkit and the Essential More Profit Toolkit.
The Basic More Profit Toolkit requires no specific financial acumen, is truly easy to use, is intuitive in application, is ready to use from day 1, and answers those basic business cash management questions.
The Essential More Profit Toolkit is for businesses that can benefit from more advanced financial tracking and guidance.
