Business Numbers

Business Numbers & Money,

How Well Do You Know Your Numbers?

50% of businesses fail because they are not profitable or have a poor cash flow.  There are two big reasons for this - many business owners have a poor understanding of their business numbers and many have a poor focus on creating a profit.  
So, how well do you understand your numbers?  
This is one question I always ask business owners and, in most cases, the response always disappoints me.  
The most successful in business always know their numbers and they always understand how the money works in their businesses.   If you don't do the same, then you must.
You may not be in business to make your millions but every business must make a profit to survive and to provide yourself with a living, so it is something you must master.
By knowing your numbers, you can achieve a good business profit, good revenue, good sales margin and control of your costs and cash-flow. Then, when you do achieve a good profit, it eliminates much of the stress of running a business.
I always show my clients how to master their business numbers and here I include a selection of articles to inspire you to do the same.

If you have ever watched Dragon’s Den, you may have noticed that many of the prospects fall down on their numbers when pitching to Peter Jones and company.  Those pitching for the Dragon’s money often cannot answer questions about their numbers such as their REVENUE SALES, their GROSS PROFIT MARGIN, their COSTS and importantly their NET PROFITS.



I frequently talk to businesses and this is one of the first questions that I ask. More often than not, a hesitant and unconfident response follows, which always strongly suggests that the business owner is ignorant of their numbers.

I estimate ONLY about 10% of business owners really KNOW THEIR NUMBERS, who can confidently tell me:-
