Finance is important to any organisation as the firm has to know how viable it is and balance profit with costs.

But sometimes leaders rely too much on the finance team to inform them about the financial health of the business.

There are many ways you can tell if a business is healthy, and ratios can be a simple way for the non-financial leaders / manager keep informed about how the money is flowing
through the business.

Although there are many financial ratios you can use to assess the health of the business, this resource includes the main ones you can use easily.

Tony Robbins is a pioneer in the personal development space, but his book on finances is like a graduate course in college.

A novice in finance could read this book and walk away an expert.

Tony takes complicated financial strategies and distils them down to the average reader’s level.

Money is not everything in life, but it is important, especially in the business. There are many entrepreneurs who are great at making income but are clueless as to how to make their money work for them through investing.

You started your business to create freedom, Tony’s book can help you take that freedom to a level you didn’t think was possible through the right investment strategies.

Money - Master the Game

Effective business planning will determine what business success looks like and what needs to be done to achieve it. Once you have a clear plan for your business, you need to look at the numbers to see if your plan will provide the financial results that you want.

This is done by preparing a budget based on your business plan objectives. For example, if you have decided to increase your sales, then this may mean extra staff, stock and/or increased marketing.

You will need to prepare a budget that shows not only increased sales but increased expenses that will be required to achieve the increase in sales.

Good cash flow management is essential in every business if it is to succeed and grow.

Cash flow forecasting is about predicting when money will move in and out of your bank account in the future. It’s easy to see how much cash you have in the bank today (you just check your bank balance!) But if you want to know what your bank balance will be next week, or next month, or next quarter, you need to do a cash flow forecast.

The amount of cash you have in your bank account dictates what you can and cannot do. Say it’s the end of the month and you need to pay your employees. It doesn’t matter how much money you are owed; either you have the cash to pay your staff, or you don’t.

This is just one example of why it is incredibly important for business leaders to know how much money will be available to them at any point in the future.

This excel spreadsheet enables you to produce a cash-flow forecast and compare your forecast month on month to your actual sales and expenses.
