Dream or Nightmare?
Is your dream business turning into a frightening, real-life nightmare?
Are your operating costs spiralling out of control, or are you losing customers to the competition?
Is staff productivity poor?
Are you experiencing a high turnover of staff?
Have you been spending money on promotions and advertising without seeing any real benefits?
Are you short of cash and low on profits?
Don’t waste your time and money on quick-fix schemes
Very little is achieved from panic based strategies – in fact, they usually make matters much worse! It is pointless to blindly throw money at a problem, unless you can understand exactly what the problem really is.
Some of these common panic actions include:
– Increasing or reducing your staff numbers without any real benefits
– Increasing your advertising spend without determining the real reason for the lack of sales
– Reducing your expenses without considering the other negative effects on your business
Effective solutions are based on facts
Basing decisions and urgent actions on “gut feelings” generally results in disappointment, not success! Smart, effective solutions to business problems should be based on evidence and facts…not intuition, or wild hunches. Self-diagnosing your own business’s weaknesses and attempting to fix them with crash programs, without you understanding the real reason for the under-performance or lack of success, generally is not effective.
It's time to get a dispassionate view from someone not involved in the day-to-day running of the business, in order to help you to re-focus your efforts, and implement workable solutions!
