Does Dealing With the Cash Flow in Your Business Stink?
Sales… Clients… Customers…Money, and Profits.
That’s really what you want, but it’s not happening. Major bummer.
Stop and take a good look at your business money. It’s a mess, right? You’re wondering where all the money went? You’ve got more bills to pay. And your sales have been the same forevs.
This isn’t how it is supposed to be.
Remember back when you started your business? You had a vision of helping people. And making lots of money?
You chose a business that interested you and your customers. A business full of opportunity and potential success.
But here you are today, and you just want to put your head in the sand – and not deal with your business numbers.
You feel stuck. And nauseous!
How Did This Happen? Why Is Managing Your Cash Flow Such a Drag?
You didn’t set out for your money life, and really your business to be this way. Your initial plan had some holes in it.
Full of assumptions that turned out to be wrong. You know what I’m talking about:
• What your clients and customers would buy.
• Dealing with your cash flow would be super easy.
• You would just move money back and forth from your business account to your personal account to pay bills.
• You would just pay your taxes in April with the money you have.
• You would just wing it with your business money and do whatever.
• You would have consistent sales and the business would just pour in.
• You would understand all of the business financial mumbo jumbo.
• And the list goes on…
That’s ok. Everybody poops. Everyone makes bad assumptions when they are starting out – I certainly did!
The problem with bad assumptions is that they impact your decisions.
Eventually you realized that something was wrong and you tried to fix it.
Then You Tried to Fix It.
First, you recognized things weren’t working.
You tried going after a different customer.
You fired your accountant. You hired a new bookkeeper.
You cut out bread. (Still reading? Ha!)
You started blogging. And Doing Facebook ads.
You tried to get a business loan.
You even went back to that old networking group you were in. Remember that guy with the bad breath? And the short tie?
When all of these changes didn’t bring you any results, you started looking for bright shiny objects – all of the internet goo-roos offering a get rich quick scheme.
So that you wouldn’t have to deal with your cash flow – because money would just be pouring in.
But nothing worked. Now you are back at square one. Something isn’t working, and you don’t know what it is!
How Do You Know What to Fix?
The changes didn’t work because you didn’t change the right things.
To find the problems, you really need to understand: business, cash flow, how to take the right risks in business, and marketing.
I don’t mean just picking up a book or reading an article – I mean really understand it.
I’m talking learning something at a really deep level – not just finding some little detail to focus on.
Staying in the Game Without Burning Out
How long are you willing to wait before things start to turn around?
How much time are you willing to invest before your business is on fire? And you have a solid handle on your business money?
Is it weeks, months, or years?
If you’re willing for it to take 2-3 years – then you should read business books and some good financial blogs.
If you want to make progress in 6-9 months, then you need something more intense – like a training program. There are a lot of courses out there on linda.com or udemy.com.
If you want to fix things sooner than that, then you should get some help.
It’s OK to Ask For Help
I have a confession to make. My business didn’t grow much between year 1 and year 2.
My first product launch stunk up the joint.
But eventually, my business has doubled in revenue, AND profits.
What did I do differently?
I stopped trying to figure it out on my own and got some help.
I paid Fabienne Fredrickson, Brendon Burchard, and Jim Gottfurcht (Pioneer of Prosperity Thinking) to take me under their wings. I put all of my energy into learning from them, and following their advice.
Add did it work? Totally? I followed their advice and diversified my revenue. I grew my sales AND profits.
Here’s the thing – even though I’m good at what I do (I manage over $90 million dollars in investments for my clients) – I still needed some outside perspective to help me see my own blind spots.
It was pretty obvious when I saw it.
But I never would have noticed it if I didn’t have these experts give me their perspective.
Get On the Phone For 30 Minutes With Me for Free
I believe in paying it forward.
As helpful as Fabienne, Brendon, and Jim have been, I’ve also received a lot of helping hands from others along the way. For no reason than simple kindness and generosity.
I’d like to do the same for you, so I came up with this idea:
Over the next few weeks, I am going to do around 10 telephone consultations. I’ll get on the phone with you for 30 minutes. You can tell me exactly what’s troubling you about your business – and managing your business money – your cash flow.
I will then give you advice that is specific to your exact situation.
It’s going to be 100% free. No charge, no strings attached.
