This view was actually hard for me to look at because I my accounting picture wasn't quite as rosy as I thought it was, but now I have some good ideas how to tackle the issues and make it more profitable. More profitable doesn't always mean more revenue either. It may just mean more efficiency.
I have read all sorts of business books from E-Myth to Good to Great, etc. As the E-Myth would explain, I'm a technician that went into business without a clue about how to run one though somehow I've made it 11 years and been profitable the whole way. This book, like no other I've read, gives me some insight into the P&L and how to use it as a guiding light. It explains how to look at labor efficiency when I had no clue what that was.
At a minimum you will come away with some new ways to look at your accounting numbers that might just show you which employees are making you money and which ones are not.
This book went quickly for me. Read it in two days. If you are trying to make your business more efficient, I think you'll love it.
Sweat Equity is great if the payoff is certain in the future and large enough to justify all the sacrifices you make! Greg is not against it but once you take investment money from others, you will have to make sure that everybody's time and effort, including yours is rewarded appropriately! Taking too much money away from investments to pay yourself is not fair to your investors while not taking any is not fair to yourself!
The levers of taxes, debt, capital and distributions are critical to managing cash since you could run out of cash even if you are profitable on the books!Read more ›
I have seen many businesses fail without proper accounting. If they follow the advice provided by Author, it will help them turn to profit.
I would say TRUE Original work, Master piece.
PS:Please do not mind the one star. I think it was not provided properly.
I have read most every business book out there, all the book from Jim Collins and so on.
This book is BETTER for the average business. Why? Because it actually tells you specifically what to do according to the authors consulting practice.
So if you are not an accountant then this is a great resource and super easy read
