THE GOODS TO GO BIG + MAKE BIZ LIFE EASIER
Here are the goods, lots of info that you may have missed this week:
NEED A WEBSITE?
TIME TO UPDATE?: Here’s an authentic small business owner I’ve fully vetted and helped that creates AWESOME, Wix-based websites. Terri Schmidt’s website work is 100% geared for small business owners who aren’t techy, don’t have the time AND/OR don’t have a hefty budget saved up. Delivered in a matter of weeks and it’ll be easy to update so you’re not held hostage by a web developer that charges $350 to create a new page or update your menu, talk to Terri, she’ll take care of you.
ADVICE FROM BRYCE
I’ve always professed the immense value of having a plan. Over the last three or so weeks, I’ve visited with biz owners from the East Bay to Monterey and it’s been super apparent that financial planning and overall strategy are many times being left for another day. While I stand behind annual business and marketing plans, I’ve witnessed first hand how important a financial-specific plan is right now, especially with spending so much time with my business partner + aptly-named Cash Flow King, Larry Hebert.
The ability to plan for what may or may not occur (the “R” word) in the near future or any other setback months ahead of it happening is crucial. Whether it’s your GM quitting, Instagram hack shutting down ads and e-commerce traffic, an unforeseen utility emergency or just seasonality. This is critical because the cash flow of your business determines both personal and professional momentum.
My advice, get on top of your finances, period. You’ll sleep much better at night and if you’re not a finance geek, it’ll be worth the money to have someone guide you that knows what they’re doing. As Larry always tells me, over the span of helping hundreds of business owners, 95% of the books he initially sees are incorrect, and critical biz decisions are being made on those incorrect numbers, not a good situation.
ARE YOU STUCK IN THE DAY-2-DAY?
I recently did a quick video on an accountability coaching service called Commit Action and as someone that’s now used their service for 4 or so weeks, I’m sold. Having a real life person text me everyday, and speak with me each week at a designated time to get me working on specific projects to move the needle and actually work ON my business pursuits, has been phenomenal. I suggest you check them out, for $399/month, and the first 30 days have a money back guarantee, it’s definitely worth a try to see if it’s for you. And no, this isn’t an ad, I just love their service!
