Three Things You Must Consider
The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn. – David RussellYour life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself. – Robert F. Bennett
Making business decisions that involve an investment can be daunting. Whether you are a fledgling practice or a tried-and-true business, any time money is involved you must take the time to make prudent choices. But what do you base these important decisions upon? And how do you truly weigh the pros and cons in order to best anticipate the potential outcome of your decision? Here’s a valuable three-point guideline that will help:
1. CapitalCapital is defined as the assets your business has available to use in the production of additional assets. Plainly speaking, you must have money to make more money. So if you are considering a choice that involves a monetary investment, you must first determine whether or not you have the necessary capital to make that choice. You may find the deal of a century, but unless you have the money to make it happen, in the long run that deal will do your business more harm than good.2. Return on InvestmentIt’s important that you evaluate ROI realistically. What type of return can you honestly anticipate from this investment? When you inflate this element, your perspective is skewed and you are unable to make the best choice possible for your business. When the return significantly eclipses the initial investment and you have the capital available to move forward, you’re looking at a potentially profitable decision.3. RiskBut before you make your final decision you must ask yourself, what are the chances this deal might go south in one aspect or another? You may find an opportunity promising a large return on your investment but the risk is high. While we’re not suggesting this should be a determining factor in your decision, we are recommending you look long and hard at the potential risk before moving forward.
Each of these elements is important to consider in the process of making good choices for your business. But more important than their individual significance is how they add up together. You shouldn’t make your decision looking at one element independently. It’s important that you see how they all measure up. Then, and only then, will you have a good idea of the best choice for your business.
UAC Offers Only the Most Lucrative Options for You and Your Business
Universal Accounting Center has more than 25 years experience helping professionals like you increase the profitability of their businesses. We recognize that business success depends upon two key elements: one, offering a service that is in high demand, and two, effectively marketing that service. That’s why we offer this special package deal: the Professional Bookkeeper and the Universal Practice Builder Programs.
The Professional Bookkeeper (PB) ProgramThe accounting profession is booming, no doubt about it. If you are a bookkeeper or accountant, you are part of that talent pool from which countless businesses will look to fill gaps in their organizations. And if you’re not, it’s never too late to hop in. Recent corporate scandals have caused many businesses to look for bookkeepers and accountants they can trust, and typically that implies certification. Universal’s PB Program will not only teach you small business accounting with a practical, hands-on approach, but it will enable you to earn a designation that evidences your skill and expertise, putting potential clients at ease.The Universal Practice Builder (UPB) ProgramEvery business, regardless of what it sells, is in the business of marketing. If you’re not selling your business, your business isn’t selling. Most accountants find themselves flustered when it comes to promoting their businesses; they feel more comfortable with numbers than they do with marketing strategies. Luckily UAC has developed a turn-key marketing solution which will enable you to grow your business with our proven system.
