05 Oct Earning a Second Bag of Money
Every client is carrying two bags of money. The first bag of money you will earn when you perform your services and/or supply your goods to your client.
The second bag of money you can only earn by improving efficiency within your business.
The Profit equation is quite simple: Revenue - Costs = Profit. If you examine this equation, you will notice that in order to increase Profit on the right, you can increase Revenue and you can decrease Costs.
Most businesses focus on increasing sales-which is terrific-and understand that cutting costs is important, but are not sure how to decrease costs other than simply buying supplies for less.
