When you purchase with plastic you’re often asked if you’d like to make it a debit or credit transaction. What’s the difference? The choice you make determines how your purchase is processed, who pays the bill for that processing, how long it takes, and what your rights are. This page covers how interchange fees work and just ho...

WORKING CAPITAL ? KEY TO FINANCIAL STRENGTH

Posted by Percy A Lowe on July 22, 2013 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

by Frank Coker

Where the P&L tells you how well you are doing during a certain time period, the balance sheet shows how well you have done for the life of your company. The P&L gives you the score for an inning. The Balance Sheet gives you accumulative score for the whole game – plus a whole lot more.

Most business owners have a good feel for their P&L (Profit and Loss Statement, a.k.a., Income Statement). But very few use their Bal...

LIQUIDITY: WEATHER PROOFING YOUR BUSINESS

Posted by Percy A Lowe on July 20, 2013 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

by Frank Coker

If you have enough money to pay your bills plus take-home pay for the owner, isn’t that enough? Unfortunately it’s usually not that simple. Just covering monthly obligations is not enough. For most businesses, revenues bounce around from month to month, and so do expenses. Even a very profitable company is likely to have times when revenues dip below expenses. And that’s why we care about liquidity. If you don’t have adequate liquidity (weather pro...

Most owners and managers are aware of these, but rarely are they thought about as the “4 pillars” that need to be balanced in order to give their business a solid footing. Getting these right will not guarantee that your business will thrive, but getting one of these wrong will almost certainly pull you down or bring you to a halt.

STRUCTURE + INNOVATION = PROBLEM

Posted by Percy A Lowe on July 18, 2013 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Anyone building a business knows that the key to success is good disciplines. One of the biggest reasons for organizational failure is – well – the lack of organization. Without good structure things fall apart. But wait - there is an important counterintuitive piece to this picture.

 

There are times when structure and discipline can actually get in the way. I realize that some will see this as a sacrilegious idea. We know that all successful companies rely on pr...

GOALS, GAPS AND TRENDS - DEFINING SUCCESS

Posted by Percy A Lowe on July 17, 2013 at 5:30 AM Comments comments (0)

by Frank Coker

Goals and budgets are not the same thing. They serve very different purposes, but they overlap and often get confused.

 

When a goal for financial performance is defined for a company or a business unit, it is generally thought of as a destination. There are usually multiple ways to reach a goal, so there is usually very little about the goal itself that tells you how to get there. In fact, high performance managers intentionally leave room for the team t...

I am just returning from a couple of days of presentations at the Tech Data conference in Orlando. I was sponsored by CompTIA to present sessions on finance and business management.

MONITORING THE HEALTH OF YOUR BUSINESS

Posted by Percy A Lowe on July 15, 2013 at 6:30 AM Comments comments (0)

by Frank Coker

When you go in for a routine physical exam, the doctor has a short list of items to check to get a quick picture of your current health status. This quick check tells him with a high degree of certainty how healthy you are and where there might be problems. Some routine items are pretty easy to check such as blood pressure, weight, and pulse. Others are more complex like cholesterol and blood sugar; it takes a lab expert to get at this data.
