Budgeting is an important aspect of business planning whether the business is a start-up or operational. It is a process of making a plan of future income and expenses, capital expenditures and cash requirements over a period of time, generally within a 12-month period.

The most common budget consists of income and expenses where projected revenues and expenses are determined based on reliable information to achieve the desired profit. 

Budgeting is an effective monitoring tool in measuring the financial performance of the business by comparing the actual results of operations versus budget.

Your Business Compass

In business, you have to craft your vision and live it day-in and day-out carefully. Your vision is your why … why your business exists?

Apple’s vision is to create innovative products and think different. Apple was a start-up in the 70s … remember this!

Have you crafted your vision? You might think, “but, I am a small business … I am not Apple!!!” Even small businesses need a compass. To keep on track and focus, your vision is your compass.

As entrepreneurs, we are constantly looking for new and different ways to collaborate and promote ourselves. For the most part, this is a good thing. A lot of the times, it’s about trial and error –throwing that pasta to the wall and seeing what sticks. However sometimes we tend to spread ourselves too thin by saying yes to almost anything and everything.

Opportunities come and go and when you've come across a potential one, it's important to go through these points before coming to a final decision.

Partnerships may at times be harmful to a small business, but if approached wisely it can turn into a key contributor to the success of a business.  

 

 

Which type of partnerships will benefit a small business:


 

  1. Choose partners that complement your offerings
  2. Choose partners that are skilled in turning a situation into a win/win
  3. Choose partners that are go getters and that can make things happen 
  4. Choose partners that seek their interests, but that care for your own interests as well 
  5. Choose partners that are transparent and that can easily communicate how they feel
