“Removing Roadblocks on Your Path to Success”
Stop the Madness in your Start-up and (Re) Gain Control!
Entrepreneurs are a unique breed: You love creating new ideas, you have amazing vision and you see the company’s success in your mind’s eye every day. However, unless you have a financial or a CFO background, you’re probably just plain disinterested in the “bean counting” aspects of your business.
At the same time, it is important to have the ability to track and read reports down to the finest detail. Pulling up systemized data and having the ability to read your company’s financials whenever that next idea strikes will make a difference in how fast you will be able to take your company to a new level.
Sounds familiar? We all know that accounting isn’t necessarily the “fun” part of a business. But here’s the rub: Other than the vision and culture, a financial and accounting system is arguably the single most important part of a growth plan and absolutely requires professional attention. Otherwise, the company ends up being a ship without a rudder, possibly headed for the rocks…
In our article 5 Hot Tips for Start-up Entrepreneurs, we show you how to “make friends” with finance and accounting and gain (or regain) control over that love/hate relationship you may already have with it.
Starting a new business? So many details, so little time!
Whether deciding to handle the start-up details yourself or hire an outsourcing company, setting up basic documentation and systems requires attention to detail and a high level of accuracy. Making the wrong choices can be very costly, so it’s better to do it right the first time, which may require some help.
Most entrepreneurs are typically driven by passion. Although getting bogged down in paperwork and other trifling matters is not ideal, you are savvy enough to know that certain legal, tax and accounting details simply have to be in place for your business to function in an efficient manner.
So, what are the most important factors startin creating a new startup company and how are they accomplished? Our “Back to Basics” article lists important elements you need to have in place BEFORE the creation of a start-up.
