When it comes to running your small business how much financial autonomy do you really have?
In Australia we call them “the backbone” and in the US they are “the lifeblood.”
We’re talking about Small Businesses and the important role they have in the overall economy. If you are a small business owner – this is you!
Thank you and we applaud you for what you do!
- create the most jobs in an economy
- support local communities and neighbourhoods
- keep money circulating “close to home”
- are more likely to stimulate innovation
- foster growth in the economy.
The past decade has seen exponential growth in the opportunities for anyone who wants to start a business of their own, to be an entrepreneur or to own a small business.
I’ve been working with small business owners for almost 20 years. Their key reasons for getting into business are:
- for autonomy, freedom and flexibility
- to “be my own boss”
- to be able to “do things my way”
Many people start a business because they want to “make a difference.”
What I’ve observed is that about 95% spend a lot of their time scrambling and reacting.
Only about 5% truly achieve financial autonomy in their business.
THE KEY QUESTIONS
How can you cross the line into the green zone of financial autonomy as a business owner?
How can you make informed decisions and build immunity against outside forces?
How do you demonstrate confidence when meeting with your accountant, bookkeeper, suppliers and all the other money conversations in your business?
AND … how do you do you achieve this level of business autonomy at speed and with ease so that you can spend more time in your business doing what you do best – taking care of your clients.
A simple and powerful approach to demystify the complexities of business financial reality.
It can be understood when you know the steps, when you have a map.
A recent client, Sarah, worked through the steps and with a few tweaks and adjustments to her expenses and her pricing model, Sarah is now paying herself in her business for the first time since starting this business 4 years ago – and she makes profit on top of that. Profit that can be used for new equipment, hiring an assistant and for professional development.
Karina ran her business for 8 years and while there was money in the bank, she wasn’t really sure how much of it was hers. Now, she has stopped feeling embarrassed and shameful when it comes to financial autonomy. She’s confident and feels powerful when she’s discussing finances and making decisions. Now Karina spends most of her time doing the things she started her business to do – take great care of her clients!
Are you ready for the first steps to achieve the same level of financial autonomy as Sarah and Karina?
