A question that pops up a lot and people are looking into, is, are you ready? Is your business digital ready? Are you taking your business online? Are you working online? Are you working remotely?
It can all be quite an overwhelming question if asked open ended really…
The short answer is probably, “I don’t know”.
So, how can we answer this question, if we are to answer it at all? Where do we start?
Well, where do all great builders and architects start? With the foundation of course. So have a look into your business and start there. Fundamentally we’re talking accounting, legal, and strategies here.
Next step, start looking into your accounting. Who doesn’t love chatting numbers? Might be worth chatting to your accountant directly and perhaps using one of the many accounting platforms out there, to best suit your own needs. This really is a key component in any business, to know what is actually going on, coming in and going out. What's working, what's not, where is all the money? You really need to be in control of your books, to be in control of your business.
From this point, you’ve got the law and accounts under control, so you feel a bit more confident, and you’re starting to build momentum. So don’t stop there… Start branching out into your business from this point.
