I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the figures as they can really get you down if you’ve been working hard but the numbers aren’t there. And because with2ns designs didn’t go as well as I had hoped I put off facing them.
But in preparing the content for the class, I decided to bite the bullet and take a look at my financial year so far. The numbers weren’t nearly as bad as I had expected. And it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
Not only can I see on the page in front of me that my decisions are paying off but I know where I stand and what I can aim for in the future.
I suppose it’s like my dad always says “you need to have a train timetable or you wouldn’t know how late the train is”. Without knowing where you are and where you want to be, you are never going to get there.
Money is a huge part of your business, it wouldn’t be a business without it. Knowing your numbers sets you free from the uncertainty that guessing and putting it off gives you.
It’s not always easy to do, you have to overcome your fears to do it, but you never know you could surprise yourself like I did and feel the need for a happy dance.
After feeling exhausted from the long hours and 3 years without a break I’m now feeling great and ready to roll with the punches again.
It never ceases to amaze me how knowledge can change everything. Making friends with your numbers and knowing where you want to go can be a game changer.
Are you friends with your numbers? Or is it something that you put off?
