Is your profit keeping pace with your sales growth, or is it stalling out? Are you spending your time growing the business or fighting fires? Do your business processes work for you or do they get in the way? Could your business benefit from an expert small business consultant who really understands how to make more money?
This is a picture of a healthy business.
Profits are keeping pace with the increase in sales. Costs are under control.
Stockholders are pleased and your bankers are as satisfied as they ever get.
You´re working 45 hours a week.
This business is heading for trouble.
Sales are still growing, but profits are almost static.
Costs are increasing faster than sales. Shareholders are getting edgy and the bankers are more demanding.
You're running harder and harder to stay in the same place, and working 60 hours a week.
When a company is growing, you're usually so busy selling and producing product, that you don't have time to review your business processes — the way your business actually works. And if you do find the time, you're often too close to the business to see some of the problems. Help your small or medium size business grow.
