The Retirement Years on Profit Boss® Radio

Perhaps you’re really starting to come into your own as an earner and thinking you could benefit from working with a financial advisor. Maybe you’ve met with several people who all call themselves financial advisors, but were surprised to discover that there was no consistency at all in what they did or the services they offered. You may also be wondering why so many advisors charge for their services in completely different ways. If your initial research into the world of financial advisors has left you with more confusion than clarity, today’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio is for you....

The Retirement Years on Profit Boss® Radio

In this episode, we’re talking about how to use scholarships to pay for college. We’ve all heard the horror stories of those who graduate with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt. Many of my clients are faced with the very real tradeoff between making sure their kids graduate with no (or minimal) debt and funding their own retirement. To make matters worse, there’s so much conflicting information around the topic of financial aid that it can be completely overwhelming. It takes practice to learn the difference between a marketing scam and a real opportunity, and few students...

The Retirement Years on Profit Boss® Radio

In this episode, we’re talking about writing and publishing books. Almost everyone has a book inside of them waiting to be written. You don’t have to be an entrepreneur who wants to spread your message and grow your empire to write a book, either. You could be a doctor looking to share nutritious recipes you’ve crafted for your patients. You could even have a full-time job and a great career, but want to write the Great American Novel to express your creative energy. No matter what you write about, you’ll ultimately have to choose how you’re going to share your book with the world....

Today’s topic is one that is very close to my heart. I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners to increase their wealth. It’s something I’m very passionate about, and business financials are invariably intimidating. Honestly, I rarely meet a business owner who feels they have a good grasp on their costs, revenue sources, and profit, let alone what to do about any of that. The worst part is that I see so many business owners languish in “I’m still in ‘investing in my business’ mode” which is always code for “I’m not paying myself enough.” It’s a common, chronic...

EP 151 | Profit Boss® Radio Welcome to episode 151 of Profit Boss® Radio! In the last several episodes I have shared that my team and I have been doing some deep soul searching in a coached environment. We have been asking ourselves the following questions: What is our purpose? What fulfills us? What do we want people to have as a result of us being on the planet? As a direct result, we came to redefine our ultimate mission, which is “All people are thriving.” One of the many realizations that came from asking these critical questions is that I can speak to you about more than money.

EP 149 | Profit Boss® Radio Welcome to episode 149 of Profit Boss® Radio!

Today’s topic is one that is very close to my heart. I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners to increase their wealth. It’s something I’m very passionate about, and business financials are invariably intimidating. Honestly, I rarely meet a business owner who feels they have a good grasp on their costs, revenue sources, and profit, let alone what to do about any of that. The worst part is that I see so many business owners languish in “I’m still in ‘investing in my business’ mode” which is always code for “I’m not paying myself enough.” It’s a common, chronic condition that I’m out to cure! 

Business can be the golden road to an amazing lifestyle, but you have to PAY YOURSELF in order to accomplish that. Otherwise, you’ve simply built yourself a job.

So, let’s get to work decoding your business numbers.  

In today’s episode, we’re digging into how to measure financial performance for three types of businesses: product businesses, brick-and-mortar businesses, and online businesses. You’ll learn what the most successful business owners I’ve worked with do (and look out for) to meaningfully measure performance, turn a profit, and consistently take home a paycheck. 

If you’ve struggled to measure your success by key performance indicators, or worse, struggled to use key performance indicators that simply didn’t apply, this approach will feel like a breath of fresh air - and can help you figure out exactly what you need to do to achieve smart, sustainable growth. 

Joining me for today’s conversation is Danielle Hayden. After 10 years in the boardroom as a CFO, she’s now the co-owner of Kickstart Accounting Inc, where she helps women get out of overwhelm, stop hiding in the dark, and take home the paychecks they deserve. 

So, are you ready to stop hiding from your financials so you can finally get to know your business, inside and out? Then you don’t want to miss this episode. Tune in to Profit Boss® Radio today!

Here’s what you’ll find out in this week’s episode of Profit Boss® Radio:

  • Why women constantly struggle to pay themselves from their businesses.
  • Why the metrics and KPIs so many business coaches focus on don’t apply.
  • Why failing to understand financials makes it nearly impossible to achieve profitable growth.
  • Examples of great product businesses - and what makes them so good.
  • When owners of product businesses should think about shutting down or considering other avenues.
  • How to evaluate financial underperformance and determine if it’s time to reevaluate a business model.
  • Why being emotionally attached to an unsuccessful business can be financially devastating.
  • The unique metrics that make measuring brick-and-mortar business performance different from that of online businesses.
  • The KPIs I use to understand where to focus my energy and make sure my online service business is growing.
  • How online service businesses can effectively track time - even when they don’t bill clients by the hour.
  • What business owners should be paying themselves, and how payouts should work.
  • How people in their 30s and 40s should save for the future.
  • Why it’s so important to understand your numbers.
  • Why almost every business owner needs custom tools to measure their finances.
