READY AIM EMPIRE 311: The Three Financial Reports That Built My 30+% Profit Margins

Numbers don’t lie, y’all.

That’s what I love about ‘em, and that’s also what makes me nervous before I take a peek at them.

There’s no fluff, you can’t wrap them up in pretty, soft words to soften the blow.

It’s a cold, hard truth.

At least it was, until I learned how to read what the numbers were telling me.

Your numbers tell a story of how well your business is really doing.

What’s working, and what isn’t.

And once you learn to decipher that message, you can work on fine-tuning it till your business mints profits like a well-oiled machine.

If looking at your numbers scares you (or if you just avoid looking at them altogether), this is the episode for you.

We’re going to deep dive into the three reports you should be monitoring, and how to use that information to get profit numbers you’ll look forward to seeing every month.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why in the past I’ve felt like financials have been my “nemesis”

  • The single most important report to have and what I’m looking for on it

  • The Pro Forma and what this report allows us to see and do

  • How regularly reviewing your payroll will benefit your business

  • A monthly practice we do that will save you tons of time and headaches come tax time

You don’t need to be everything to be enough. You just need to be exceptional at providing solutions […]

Episode 256: Meet Brooke Bowersock, the Founder of Align Studios and See How She’s Bridging the Gap Between Pilates and Other Movement Modalities

Owning a studio inherently makes you a business owner, yes. But an entrepreneur? Not necessarily… See, an entrepreneur has slightly different tendencies. The way they think of operating their businesses involves more systems, more team members and less of themselves. I know what you’re thinking, “This is my passion, there’s no way I can take […]
