What do you expect your Profit to be this Year?

Posted on October 7, 2014 at 1:17 AM


  Profitability is a key driver of financial success in business. The goal of every Business owner should be to make profit and improve their business to make it better.

  If you were having a discussion, one year from today, and looking over your financials, Will you be happy with your financial progress? This question should propel you to take action, about what you expect your profit to be for the year.

  Profit is like a car,that must be driven; it does not drive itself; for you to get a projected profit, you have to be on top of your profit expectations. I have listed some questions, which should stimulate you to focus on an expected profit, as the year is coming to an end:
  • What do you expect your profit (taxable income) to be for this year?
  • Is this level of profitability above-average for your industry?
  • What percent of revenues does your profit represent?
  • Is your expected profit up or down from last year?
  • How much of your profit will be converted into cash this year?
 
  As you go through these questions, you're painting a picture of what your financial success should look like, and this will lead you to action, for an end result. Having a picture requires taking action to actualize your projected expectations. These steps below will help you achieve your financial profit picture, feel free to put them into practice and see the transformation, it brings to your business:

  1)  Have a Target Goal: You need to have a financial goal for your business at the beginning of every year. The Goal can be broken into monthly, quarterly and semi-annual financial targets. It is advisable and easier to have a monthly target.

 2) Monitor your Progress: Once you set your financial goals, you will need to monitor your progress, against your target every month. You can only monitor your progress by examining your monthly financial reports (Profit & Loss/ Balance Sheet Reports). If you have not been preparing your report, this should be a good time to start.

3)  Adjust: At the end of every month, you need to review your target goal against your actual results (financial reports), and decide if you need to make changes, in your business, to achieve your targets. The changes can be in form of reducing an expense category to putting a plan in place for faster accounts receivables process.

 This is the secret to creating your financial success for your business. I challenge you to put these into action and watch your business achieve your desired projected profit.
