Here is Tim’s 5 part series where he shares the secrets to financial success for business owners.
Have you ever stopped to think what it is that separates a high performing business from one that struggles? A good idea, a detailed business plan, or maybe just a case of sheer good luck?
People go into business because they are technical experts in their field of expertise and they are sick of making money for other people and believe they can do it better i.e. they have entrepreneurial drive. Business owners aren’t normal. If we were normal we would be working for someone else for a wage without the hard work, stress and heartache associated with owning a business.
However, very few business owners have a qualification in business and I have found that many are overwhelmed by the finances of their business.
I constantly hear from business owners that ‘I am just a … (concreter, plumber, truck driver, travel agent, etc.) … and I don’t understand numbers.’ The accounting profession has made an art out of complicating a process that in essence is very simple.
