Understanding the Numbers

Posted on

The most important part of your business are the numbers. Numbers don’t lie and numbers tell you everything you need to know about managing business finances to make smart decisions. As you project your revenue, be conservative with the pricing of your products or services. Don’t be caught off guard expecting higher revenue than what is reasonable. Then identify how to reach your customers, while still being able to cover your monthly operating expenses. And don’t low ball your expenses, be honest with yourself. This is the only way you’ll be able to truly understand the costs of operating your business and developing your product or service. With these factors in mind, you can start projecting your cash flow. Add up your fixed costs, the estimated costs of goods and services, and your best and worst case revenue projections. This will give you a good starting point for the financial outlook of your business. Then, you can take your next steps based on how your actual revenue is realized. Don’t forget, if you’re starting your business with a loan, you’ll need to factor in the cost associated with making those payments as well. Stay focused on your numbers and you’ll be on the right track to success.
