Build Your Business Financial Roadmap

Your Solid Path to Profits to Fund Your Creative Passion

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Understand your numbers and which ones you need to run your business. You'll also know what questions to ask your accountant so that you delegate and not abdicate your financial management

  • Plan your profitable pricing strategy for existing services and future products. You will also know your company economics to see how your business can be more profitable

  • Use your sales & expenditure forecast for existing services and future products to test your ideas, help you lower risks and seize opportunities

  • Using sales data for future range planning

  • Do regular expenditure analysis to see where you can reduce or align costs to meet your profit goals and achieve your vision 


Four 60 -90 minute sessions by Skype or Zoom.  We will have one Skype/Zoom session per fortnight. I will also be working on your budget and cash flow forecast in between our sessions. 

You will have email support in-between sessions.

You will receive a funky welcome pack and we will begin with a vision session. During the session, together, we will design your ideal business model and determine where you want to be in 1-3 years.

I will do a fitness test on your company's existing financial condition by doing an analysis of your profit and loss account, balance sheet and cash flow statement. You can print these from your accounting software or give me temporary access.

I will talk you through my analysis in plain English not 'accountantese' so that you know what story your numbers are telling about your business. 

Together, we will then start preparing your dynamic rolling budget and cash flow forecast, with best and worst case scenarios.  I will finish them and input the budget to Xero or a dedicated cash flow software.

I will also show you how Xero can be updated regularly with actual figures and compared to the forecast to monitor your progress towards your goals.

Your dynamic budget and cash flow forecast will be living tools that puts you in the know about your creative business, keeps your finger on the pulse and help you make better financial decisions.
