The Best Way to Grow Your Business

Mar 27Mark Nuelle

Although every business wants to grow, some types of growth are certainly better than others. Consider the following 2 options: OPTION 1: Grow Sales by 20%, and net      income increases 50%. OPTION 2: Grow Sales by 50% (a lot more      work and risk than Option 1), and net income only increases 20%. The best way to grow is when net income growth out-paces sales revenue growth. For every additional unit of sales, we want to generate more profit,

People Before Profit

Feb 28Mark Nuelle

In these very tenuous and difficult economic times, the importance of profitability becomes tantamount. Without profit, positive cash flow, which is the lifeblood of business, can quickly  dry up and cause significant difficulty even in basic operations. This is especially true when the availability of credit seems to be evaporating before our eyes. Profitability is critical in the short term and in the long run. When times are challenging, as they are today, we must do everything we can to

Set Your Goals – Get Results

Jan 31Mark Nuelle

In his book, “What They Don’t Teach You in the Harvard Business School,” Mark McCormack shares a study of students in the 1979  Harvard MBA class, in which the students were asked, “Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?”  Amazingly, only three percent of the graduates had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing; and a whopping 84 percent had no  specific goals at all.

Exit Sign With Reflection

For the last several years, sales and purchases of businesses have been in sharp decline. The “Great Recession” has made many people hypersensitive to economic risk. The stock market decline and volatility has eroded wealth and confidence. Many aging baby-boomers who dreamed of getting out by now haven’t been able to exit their businesses. According to some market watchers, this may change sooner than many think. Private equity firms are sitting on an estimated $500 billion in cash. In the

Keep It Simple Stupid

Whether you are planning a personal strategy, a business plan or a production process, I have found that strategic planning follows the same steps. The first step in this process is to decide what is  important. What is your mission, your vision, your values? What are the guiding principles you will use to filter every decision you make? At B2BCFO® our values are honesty, integrity and objectivity. Once this is understood it is then easy for a firm, as well

Jun 28Mark Nuelle

  Social media is new and interesting, yet many are dubious about its ability to build business. There are a multitude of case studies in which social media have helped businesses influence or reverse public opinions by being a part of the conversation. When used as part of an integrated marketing plan, social media tools can indeed be a powerful way to connect with and influence your target audience. But slapping together a Facebook page or blogging every few weeks

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “I am making a profit but I don’t know where the cash is?” Many business owners tend to manage their business strictly from the income statement.   An income statement is very important to a business as it provides a historical view of what transpired in the company over a period of time and gives the business owner, banks and other investors a better perspective of what contributed to the net profit or loss
