Do you know how much profit is enough or are you living a slow death?
Like it or not, business owners need to STOP and work on the things that are broken resulting in – insufficient cash flow, revenue and profitability! They don’t know how to self-diagnose faults and bad habits – determine the why and the how – and prioritize the best solutions despite tons of available information. They need feedback – what are the checkpoints – from an objective pair of eyes.
As a business owner, most of your assets are probably tied up in your company. You may be afraid of losing everything and not being able to retire. You could be fighting a lack of talented and skilled employees, inventive product development or operational excellence that is strangling your business and profits. So, you don’t want to fail or maintain the status quo – both are dead ends!
Distinctive business leaders have mastered the 18 sources of profits, return-on-assets and free cash flow. They have acquired and applied the insight, foresight and practical experience that make up their unique profitability roadmap. It provides the money energy, known as profits, that they need to win in today’s marketplace. After all, profits are the one true measure of success and the lifeblood of a business that is surviving AND thriving
RAISE the BAR…
You CAN build a POWERFUL cycle of value creation and profitability that generates over 100% more profits with no capital investment and use that extra cash to get a leg up on rivals because you’ve created:
- An exceptional strategic management, marketing and sales capability that fulfills those unmet customer needs.
- Increased manufacturing capacity and scalability with no capital investment, especially in the supply chain.
- A production system most able to produce the mix, volume of products and outputs required by customers.
- Innovative product development that is able to attract and retain new customers and enter new markets.
- Increased profitability and return-on-assets along with free cash flow for growth and leveraging new opportunities.
Remember, your company is the most valuable asset you have and someday you’ll be looking to cash-out. Every incremental improvement made will bring many times more salable value (price) to your company – the really big bucks that allow you to retire!
It’s HARD when you don’t have control!
If you’re like many of my clients, this is WHY it’s so common that you haven’t found that hidden cash and profitability:
- The unending scramble to “Make the Month” in conjunction with the “Prayer System” – hoping that employee’s do it right and there are no quality crises.
- Your plant is missing delivery dates and carrying all kinds of excess inventory from uneven flow and defective products piling up. Receivables are going uncollected and cash flow is managed by stretching out payments to vendors. These hidden money resources are just sitting around creating liquidity problems.
- Employees are not rowing together – too much infighting, silo thinking and “lone-wolf” behaviors. It’s hard to get those “pride building” results to happen that increase morale.
- Hidden time drains…lost forever with endless and ineffective meetings or worse, no meetings.
- Not having a strategy process and plan. You don’t have the insight and foresight to navigate profitably into the future given the current risks and situation.
HERE’S THE DEAL.
It’s the skills that make the difference between working in the business for lower success versus working on a growing business for massive success. WHY? Because a new set of skills is required for each size business!
- $5M – $10M – $15M – $20M businesses are all dramatically different, both strategically and operationally. They also attract a different level of competitor and you can really get into trouble here.
The bottom line is that you MUST set and raise the bar with new systems and procedures, institutionalized for success. It requires an understanding of the common goals, interdependencies and environment (one-way → environment affects the system not vice versa); companies fail because they don’t adjust to the changing environment, this is critical to ascertain.
So, in order to navigate these rough seas, you are going to need “The PROFIT SYSTEM”, a business support program that can educate, diagnose and provide guided practice, so that you can walk the talk, one step at a time. You’ll be able to reduce risk and navigate profitably into a growing future.
I’ve worked with businesses from start-up to Fortune 500 and I know what it takes.
As a result, my clients have realized, time and time again, that these steps produce 100%+ increase in profits, achieve positive cash flow and a higher return-on-assets for sustainable growth. Ultimately, it generates more capacity to pursue new innovative opportunities.
Case Study: Problem – an Electronic Manufacturing Services client was experiencing negative profitability due to extremely high inventory levels, insufficient cash and credit to buy components and as a result, had poor manufacturing throughput. Solutions – we negotiated with suppliers to return unneeded parts, reduced COD deliveries, got required parts released, sold off over $500K in excess inventory for cash and improved manufacturing flow by 25% via better production planning and controls. Benefits – our ultimate outcome was increased cash flow and improved profitability to nearly 5%, an increase of over 500%. Other positive side effects were better market position, reduced working capital, improved credit worthiness of the company and restored customer confidence.
