I’m a man that doesn’t ‘do things by half’ and I take that approach into every aspect in my life! In my view, there is no point doing something if you’re not giving that something 100%.
We've all heard the phrase “Abs are made in the kitchen”. Starting a new role and fitting in a training plan has been intense, especially trying to reconnect with all my contacts across the North West region. Planning my diary to maximise efficiency is a crucial part of success. The same approach can be taken with your finances. Planning for peaks and troughs in cashflows and seeking help early can avoid larger issues down the line.
‘Don’t be a busy fool’ - organising your diary and determining where you need to be is a full-time job in itself! Throw travel and rush hour traffic into the mix, and your days can quickly become shorter and less efficient. If you are looking at fundraising for your business, is meeting multiple lenders to compare really the best use of your time? Why not focus on running the business instead and leave an expert partner to manage this, maximising the time available to you?
Review the plan
Many businesses set out their annual financial objectives once - at the start of the calendar year or start of their financial year. Even plans made with the best intentions should adapt as time moves on, and the end objectives change. It is good practice to take stock of how your business is performing towards your target and does anything have to be changed to achieve this? Don’t be afraid to amend this where needed. Missing an occasional training run will not be the end of the world – life does get in the way!
