Business Survival Strategies

Every small business owner wants to be a success. Most are looking for answers. Some don't even know the questions to ask! You rarely find companies accidentally doing it right.

If you are doing everything right, pat yourself on the back, and decide what to do with your profits. If not, let's take a look at what you can do now to improve the financial health of your business.

Would you believe ...

  • A business $3.5 million in debt with negative net worth, and $1 million in sales could be completely restructured, and convert over $3 million in debt to equity?

  • A small company could cut more than $18,000 a month off overhead with no negative effect on level of service or quality?

  • A healthy business, unable to get bank expansion financing, could, in today's economy, attract investors and obtain a bank loan package totaling more than $800,000, just by rewriting its business plan, and repackaging its documentation?

Have you identified any of these trouble signs? .... Even
one of these symptoms means your financial health is at risk.

  • You raided your child's piggy bank to make payroll.
  • Your accounts payable or your accounts receivable are more than 30 days overdue.
  • Your receivable represent more than 100% of your monthly income.
  • Your banker won't renew your loan, and is asking for more equity.
  • Cash flow is just an abstract concept. (10% of businesses have NO cash flow.)

Is your company...

  • In a negative cash flow and/or negative net worth position (on the edge of bankruptcy)?
  • Not growing, but you're unable to determine why?
  • For sale, but the business is not healthy enough to attract potential buyers?
  • Unable to obtain financing because financial documentation is not properly developed or packaged?

Are you concerned about...

  • How much your business is worth? ( Business Valuation )
  • How much it will be worth? (Projections)
  • Cost analysis and cost cutting strategies? Is your business run as efficiently as it could be?
  • Are you in touch with the financial status of your business?
    (Financial management evaluation).
  • What the bank and investors really want? (Financial packaging , the documentation to obtain financing.)
