SHORT TERM FINANCIAL GOALS:
Revenue Goals: Create achievable goals for the amount of income you will achieve in a year. Your goal may be to increase lambing percentages by 5% or build your contracting business income by 10%.
Benchmark: It may not seem like a goal but benchmarking your business against similar businesses to yours can provide an opportunity for you to recognise areas for improvement in your business.
Cost Reductions: Determine where the biggest opportunity cost is within your expenses. Then, if possible, reduce it slowly over time. You will not always get instant results but decreasing costs should always be one of the financial goals your business has. Every dollar saved is another that can put towards growing your business.
Improve Financial Margins: Work to increase your business profits by focusing on your margins. Are there parts of your business that are not performing as well as others? Look at overhead expenses as well as operating expenses.
Work to Manage Debt: Create a plan to keep debt under control then, work to find a way to reduce your existing debt in a stepped process over time.
Improve Control Cash Flow: This can be a difficult area for many businesses, but cash flow planning provides an opportunity for your business to manage expenses, unexpected costs, reduction in income and debt better.
