6:15 - Presentation - Your Financial Strategy for Your Business and Your Life - Part One

If you're like most small business owners, you started your business because you wanted more personal freedom and you possessed valuable knowledge and skills in a specific industry or profession. You didn't however start with a clear picture of the business you were going to create. Instead, you went out and did what you were good at and the business was built around you. As your business has grown, your responsibilities and job functions have grown as well. You are no longer only a programmer, electrician, or chef you are now also a financial manager, recruiter, motivator and customer service representative.

Every financial decision that you make has an impact on your business, your life. When you are managing and growing your business, it is challenging to balance your business and personal financial opportunities. Often personal finances suffer at the expense of the increasing complexity of running a business.

We will show you how The Living Balance Sheet gives you an organized and streamlined view of your financial decisions across your business and personal life.

At this point you must respond to the changing dynamics of the business with effective strategies that set you on the right path. You've achieved your first goal: you are no longer working for somebody else. You are your own boss. Now you should focus on growing the value of the business.

This view will enable you to maximize protection, minimize costs and help create an impenetrable barrier to protect your personal and business assets, helping you live for today and plan for tomorrow.

Value is primarily dependent on the long-term profitability of the company; to achieve this you need a set of strategies that focus on sustainability and value-added business systems.
