Starting a new business is not an informal process.

In today's age, anyone and their dog can start a business. Unfortunately, throughout our years of experience working with startups we’ve seen too many ventures with great potential get destroyed or set back due to shortcuts that should never have happened in the first place.

We are not suggesting that any startup needs to demand perfection, but we do recommend that all learn and follow common business practices from the beginning. You will save yourself time, energy and money and avoid the pit falls that could cost you everything.

10 Steps to Better Budgeting:

1️⃣Decide on your business goal: sales growth, more profits, a bigger team, bricks & mortar?
2️⃣Pick a time frame: 1 yr, 3 yrs, 5yrs?
3️⃣Review last year's numbers with your accountant or advisor
4️⃣Decide on a realistic monthly sales target
5️⃣Identify your fixed costs. Are they likely to go up?
6️⃣Identify your variable costs. Can you see any instant savings?
7️⃣Identify planned asset purchases
8️⃣Review your budget with your accountant or advisor
9️⃣Regularly review your actual finances against your budget monthly or quarterly
🔟Review quarterly with your accountant for a progress check and advice on improvements

If numbers just aren't your thing don't ignore them or you'll be putting the survival of your business in jeopardy. 
Whether it's a simple one-page budget to keep track at a glance, or a more detailed budget that lets you plan for a profitable future, the dynamic team at Vandeross can help.

Hello you two---Oh wait, that's us!👋
.
Thank you @thecolabcafe for the tour of your sweet new space & getting us out of the office today to speak some truth bombs with @connexionista!

As business owners, we need to break down the barriers of viewing competition as a bad thing! Every one of us, no matter the business or industry, has unique qualities that their so called competition doesn't have.

Putting a strategy in place, identifying your uniqueness and adjusting the mindset of competition opens you up to a slew of new opportunities and allows you to enjoy being in business a whole lot more.

Today, we are happy to report that we made new friends that do what we do at The Co. Lab 🥳

I had a great morning with these two ladies who came in from Kingston to check out @thecolabcafe

We talked business, strategy, social, you know, all of the good stuff.

We do some similar work, so it was great to have a chat about our processes. I think that every chance you get to talk to people in your industry about your work, it's an opportunity to learn.

When you've picked your particular lane, have a specific client in mind, and are focused on adding value in your unique way, there's plenty of room for everyone to win!

I'm looking forward to seeing more from these smart and savvy ladies. And hopefully I'll get to visit them really soon and show you their digs!

Now I need to eat. I skipped lunch again, and I'm getting hangry. 🤣

Here's a Stakeholder analysis we did with a client earlier this week. This exercise helps us uncover all of the stakeholders who may be impacted directly or indirectly by any changes we make to our business.
.
It is important to understand 1️⃣who the stakeholders are, 2️⃣what their characteristics are and 3️⃣ what their influence is so that their needs, wants and expectations are fulfilled.
.
If they are not identified, their critical needs may be missed, resulting in increased costs, reduced customer satisfaction and no-repeat business.

Any worthwhile pursuit will carry some amount of risk⚠️ That’s a fundamental truth both inside and outside of the business world. While there’s no shortage of motivational appeals to jump right into a new endeavour with both feet, that approach will frequently result in disaster. With all that’s on the line, why take those unnecessary chances? Without proper planning and preparation, you’re setting yourself up for failure more often than not. .
Contact us today to discuss your business goals, make a plan and execute!

Unhappy customers should be valued within your business. Many unhappy customers will simply take their business elsewhere without giving you a second chance.
▫️
We recommend implementing a customer satisfaction survey or better yet 💬 pick up the phone ☎️ and call them, thank them for their business and ask them what can be done to improve their experience to keep them coming back.
