Create some Certainty in Uncertain Times

Too often lately, clients are coming to me with concern on their faces. Sleepless nights, fear and anxiety are etched in their expressions and you just know there must be spinoff effects to others around them. When we start talking, almost always their concern comes down to uncertainty… not knowing what to do next. Typically, they have multiple factors swirling around their minds and no way of organising them into a rational sequence. I ask…

“Let’s say 1 is low and 10 is high, what level of negative impact are you currently experiencing because of your business?”

There a lot of 8s and 9s lately.

Many business owners believe financial modelling is only for large corporations. This is not so. We put together financial models for all types of clients. And guess what… these clients aren’t experiencing 8s and 9s.

Typically, financial modelling creates three scenarios on the Profit and Loss Statement – worst, average and best. Additionally, they weight those scenarios in terms of their likeliness to occur. Each scenario also comes with a plan to avoid, improve or maximise each outcome. And this brings about the best part for me…

When the modelling is complete, I love asking the same question again and hearing the answer come back, “It’s about a 2 or 3 now.”

Currently sitting around 8 or 9?

Certainty is a phone call away.
