Avoid The Costly Financial Management Mistakes That Sink 82% of eCommerce Businesses
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that “cash flow is the lifeblood of your business”.
Fact: According to a U.S. Bank study, 82% of businesses fail due to poor cash flow management skills or poor understanding of cash flow.
Most eCommerce businesses don’t make it to their fifth year because they don’t even know they have cash flow problems.
Most business owners don’t understand how to properly manage cash flow, so how could they know the difference?
This sobering statistic is no surprise to you. In fact, that’s why you’re here…
Hi, My Name is Rob te Braake
I am the founder of ABEL Finance – Virtual CFO Services
I help online business owners feel in control of their numbers, grow faster and be more profitable.
My company, ABEL Finance provides virtual CFO services, as well as financial and strategic advisory. We help our clients grow faster and more profitable based on financial insight.
At ABEL, we believe that the best business decisions are made based on finance insights.
Finance is a language. It is a way to understand your business, and a way to diagnose all aspects of your business — processes, growth, opportunities, risks and much more. ABEL helps you to translate all the information into clear and actionable insights, so you can make better decisions.
I believe eCommerce entrepreneurs have more to gain from financial insight than any other business owner. Which makes this a unique opportunity for you to learn from and work with me in a group setting for a fraction of what it costs for one on one consulting.
Hi, My Name is Mads Singers
Having worked as a management coach for 6+ years, I have coached people in large organizations such as Shell and Coca-Cola as well as with innumerable entrepreneurs in small to mid-sized companies.
As an entrepreneur with multiple eCommerce businesses of my own, eCommerce entrepreneurs are some of my favorite clients.
And they love working with me too, because of my deep knowledge of their business model.
As A Business Owner, You Already Know You Need To:
Perform a cash flow analysis on a regular basis
Use cash flow forecasting so you can make better business decisions
Do scenario planning to prepare you for high probability/high risk problems
REALITY CHECK: Are You Consistently Doing These Things?
If you’re like most eCommerce entrepreneurs, you are probably too busy handling the most urgent and important tasks. In the day-to-day pressure cooker of business, it’s understandably hard to find time to do the important, but not urgent tasks.
As the leader of your company, it’s up to you to prioritize these Important/Non-Urgent activities so that you can prevent crises and keep your head up so that you can recognize and pursue new opportunities.
Another common pitfall you may relate to is focusing too narrowly on your own core competencies.
For example, many of my clients have amazing advertising, marketing, and/or creative skills, but they struggle when it comes to the “mundane” task of analyzing their finances. And while it is wise for you to focus on your strengths, you also know that good financial management can make or break your business.
The question is, what are you going to do about it?
If you’re thinking, “I’ll hire a CPA!” There’s good news & bad news…
First, if you don’t already have a relationship with a good CPA, I would be a terrible management consultant if I didn’t encourage you to find a good one as soon as possible. It’s true that they often do a lot more than save you money in taxes. In fact, they can be trusted advisors. And as they get to know your business over the years, they can become an essential part of your financial management and planning team.
HOWEVER, no one outside your company will ever be able to understand and interpret the data the way you can. They simply won’t be close enough to the marketing and operations of the business to have the kinds of insight you have.
What’s more, hiring a full-time financial expert or CFO may not be a viable option for you at this time. Outsourcing to a finance & data analysis company like Rob’s may not be either.
I’m Going to Level With You…
As a business owner, you must have a broad understanding of the most important financial management concepts & processes.
Fortunately, we’ve made it easy for you to master the most important concepts in the least amount of time…
