I had a very emotional conversation with a dear friend of mine this morning, the conversation was about a once thriving consumer goods business he owned that not only went down in the flames of huge debts, but took a lot of him with it. In fact, after analyzing the entire conversation, I thought to myself: “It’s a miracle this man didn’t die.” As an auditor/accountant who has done a lot of financial control and fraud investigation work over the years, I was literarily drawing process flow charts in my head to identify problem areas as he spoke about various aspects of the business. The problem was clearly not revenue generation or market share; he had all that in the bag, it was hardly access to working capital or distribution network as well. It was simply the fact that while he paid attention to growing his business with all he had in him, he, like many business owners didn’t implement proactive financial controls and/or know how to interpret financial reports that could have told him there was fire on the mountain. He didn’t know how to catch and dispose of the rats who lurk around the businesses of hardworking business owners like him.
As we count down to the year 2016, it is important that you just don’t sleep and wake up marking your calendar, you have to make the intention and put plans in motion right now to ensure that you and your business have an agenda of growth and progress in 2016 and beyond.
