I've been speaking to lots of groups over the past few days and sharing practical tips on how to manage in the incredibly challenging and rapidly evolving situation we find ourselves in.
Difficult as things are, there are always options. Out of adversity comes opportunity... not to profiteer, but to be creative, innovative, pivot, evolve, create new products or services, and to build customer loyalty through continuing to deliver value and great service.
Profit is opinion, cash is fact, knowledge is POWER
Money worries are huge for everyone I’m talking to at the moment which is why knowing what’s going on with your cashflow is so important.
With knowledge comes the power to focus on what you can control, make the best possible decisions and will reduce some of your stress and anxiety levels.
How can we help you?
Cashflow - we can help you prepare a cashflow forecast for your business or review and stress test one that you've already produced. If you're not already using accounting software - now is the time to start. Contact us for special rates for Xero Cashbooks (only available through accountants and bookkeepers).
Planning - having plans in place and taking action to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 is a requirement for receiving government assistance. We can work with you from the beginning to create a plan or provide feedback and recommendations on the plans you have in place.
Coaching and Support - Each business owner will have different challenges and needs. We are here if you want to chat through your concerns. Tapping into our knowledge and expertise, or simply having a sounding board can help you navigate the way forward.
We are holding on-line clinics and one-to-one coaching to help you. As part of supporting our business community, we are offering weekly group coaching clinics or one-to-one coaching at discounted rates. Check out our "Services" page for more information.
