It is said that an aircraft heading from Sydney to Los Angeles is “off-course” 97 percent of the time. This means that the flight will only reach its destination on-time if it is constantly correcting its direction towards the target. Without a clear knowledge of the target, the plane might easily end up in Alaska! The same is true of any business. Leaders without clear vision have a tendency to make decisions in a reactive manner, and they are heavily influenced by emotions. When the business owner has a clear vision, shared with their team, they are able to be proactive, and their decisions are based on accurate information rather than emotions.
One of the primary reasons for business failure is insufficient working capital. It has been proven that business owners with an excellent business plan are twice as likely to get the working capital they need to run and grow their business. Lack of working capital creates a lot of stress, and this decreases your performance dramatically. When there is sufficient working capital to pay your bills and develop your business, you get more sleep, have more energy and your ability to be creative is enhanced. Having a strategic business plan with 3 way financials increases your chances of raising the capital you need 2-fold.
Freedom and lifestyle:
A survey of small to medium business owners asked the question, “What do you value most?” Interestingly most of those surveyed responded with “personal freedom” as the answer. Very few people would rate their business as the most important thing in their lives, however business growth and prosperity is fundamental in the fulfilment of our most valued aspects of life such as family, spouses, spirituality, friends, recreation and many other important things we love to enjoy. Often, we start out with a dream of a business that will provide all the time and money we need to enjoy the things we value most only to find that we end up time-poor and cash-strapped. A well thought out strategy that is put into action is the only way to avoid being ensnared in a business trap. Freedom and the lifestyle we deserve is described by Stephen Covey as the ability to “Live, to love and leave a legacy” This does not happen by accident, it can only come about through implementing a great business plan.
Exit strategy and Succession Planning
Baby boomers were born post war, in the period 1946 – 1961. Over the next 15 to 20 years, it is estimated that 5.5 million Australian baby boomers will be exiting their business. This has been described quite accurately as a tsunami of businesses coming on the market, amounting to about 420,000 businesses. These businesses account for approximately half of the small businesses in Australia responsible for 25% of the GDP. With so many businesses coming onto the market, this creates a very competitive landscape for those wishing to sell their business.
You may be one of these business owners, having poured your heart and soul into your work. You may have invested your life’s savings, your super and even equity in your family home. Such small business owners often consider their business an investment to replace or supplement superannuation. A well-conceived exit strategy or succession plan seeks to achieve a high return on investment upon the sale of the business. This may be achieved by focusing on future potential rather that past results. After all, this is what the potential buyer is seeking. Past performance is not necessarily a good predictor of future potential, especially where there is no business plan in place.
A succession plan seeks to identify recurring income and passive revenue streams. Once identified, and leveraged through developing a strategy and putting it into action, these forms of revenue improve the value of the business and a well-timed strategy will secure a prosperous and rewarding retirement strategy.
