When we set out on a fishing trip or hike, we always check the weather forecast.
It’s no different in business. The forecast tells us if there’s bad weather (poor cashflow) in store based on the direction we’re heading.
Your forecast will tell you:
The difference between a business forecast and a weather forecast is that, when the business forecast is showing bad weather, you can do something about it to make the sun come out. The forecast will tell you what’s going well and what’s not, so you can make adjustments to reduce the impact of bad weather.
Just as you wouldn’t go fishing without checking the forecast, you shouldn’t run your business without an annual forecast. So, don’t live in your raincoat, waiting to get soaked – take control and talk to us about getting your forecast done so you know what to expect.
