We put the FUN in business fundamentals
(somebody had to)
We know one thing for sure. As a business leader, there are elements of your work you love and others you don’t. Things you "have time for" and things living on the the back burner. And there are technical aspects you have the skill sets for and others you don’t.
If we asked you to identify what you love and where you want to put your time, you’d have no problem. But now what about the "other stuff”? “Stuff” like...analyzing financial data? Examining operational efficiencies and deficiencies? Dissecting customer trends?
We’d wager that you didn't get into the business to focus on that "other stuff"...
BUT WE DID.
And we'd like to think our enthusiasm is pretty contagious.
Still here? Ask yourself this: Am I thriving or just surviving?
Every year, hundreds of thousands of small businesses and non-profits go under. Just Google “why businesses fail” and read Forbes, CNBC, Entrepreneur, and you’ll see that neglecting the dreaded “other stuff” has a lot to do with it. You could offer the greatest product or service, but if you want to operate a really successful business, someone has to understand and manage the “DON'Ts": "-like-tos,” “-have-time-fors," "-know-how-to-dos.”
It’s really not optional, it’s called "running a business."
