so long as you don’t do too many things wrong. -Warren Buffet

Fix bad bookkeeping
The next best way to optimize your business for wealth is to fix lousy bookkeeping. You might think your business is exempt. If your books are a mess, it’s obvious you need help, and it’s better to start working on sooner rather than later. We can help.
If your books aren’t a mess, the bad bookkeeping practices will be less noticeable, hidden beneath stacks of standard operating procedures, it’s evident to us when we’re doing something wrong if the outcome works. Efficiency, you need to be as efficient as possible in working on the right goals to support your business.
If you don’t have time to work on what matters, you lack efficiency, as we get closer to mastering a task, our effectiveness is improved. Mastery teaches us what we should and shouldn’t be focusing on. In today’s world, we all focus on things we know we shouldn’t.
An accounting transformation is more comfortable than trying to navigate an audit, it gives you more time to work on your business instead of in your business, and it makes sense. If you find confusion in your numbers, it’s a sign of bad bookkeeping, and most errors don’t come from the accounting themselves but the source. A CFO can help you identify that source. Otherwise, you’ll put a bandaid on an already broken task.
A real business transformation can only occur from within. You’ll need to take stock of your available assets and determine where you want your business to be. Most transformations arise naturally due to changes in our environment or within, the difference is uncomfortable, most transformations are. If you’re ready for a business transformation, but it hasn’t occurred, you’re missing the application, not the knowledge.
If I load weight on my body it’s going to cause a dynamic change inside of me, the idea is simple, but we make it complicated. The details tend to overwhelm us and can become a negative transformation, pushing us towards procrastination and indecisiveness. The truth is you can’t transform your business all at once. It can only be done little by little, one day at a time, just like building muscle.
Your business needs muscle too. If you’ve already fixed your bad bookkeeping, then it’s time to work on strategies that multiply your time. Take what you do now and imagine you made the same amount of money but did less work, what would that take to accomplish?
You can make more money by doing less if you focus on your transformation, cut out old procedures, and adopt new ways to increase productivity. Instead of staying busy, being busy, stay smart, and stay transforming. The secret to a business transformation is to keep it like an endless cycle, month after month, year after year.

Long term wealth planning
Long term wealth planning begins with a firm financial foundation; from there, we can build out a structured plan to meet your wealth goals. When we tell our money where to go, we take away any opportunity that it might run away from us, if you don’t have a plan for your money you can bet it will be gone soon.
Long term wealth is about sacrificing normal and avoiding the concept of the crowds’ philosophy. Admit it to yourself, do you want a healthy life, are you satisfied with living as though you were already dead?
Long term wealth is within the realm of possibility for all of us. If you only get one thing from this article, I hope it’s this, your habits and relationship with money matter more than the knowledge you have. It doesn’t matter how much money you make. If you lose it all the next day, long term wealth planning ensures you are building generational wealth.
Invest in yourself
If you only had twenty dollars in your pocket, with no direction, invest in yourself. You are the best investment you will ever make. You carry yourself around wherever you go and the skills you build a compound. You’re paid for your worth, that’s not true because the value in human life is priceless, the potential is unlimited.
We make money for your ability to use the skills that you’ve developed throughout your life. Most people don’t invest in themselves, not even a little bit, and they wonder why their circumstances don’t change. Investing in yourself is a sacrifice, but it’s worth it, instead of spending your time, you’re investing in your future.
Billionaires and Millionaires don’t think the world owes them something, they believe that money chases value, and as long as they’re creating value for people, the money will flow in. As an owner, you can only present your work. With pride and due diligence, it is up to you to create the narrative of perceived value. If you fail to create this value, it will be determined by the marketplace.
When you start making progress by investing in yourself, you will notice how exciting growth starts to become. It changes from suffering to freedom. Abundance is created when we begin to invest our time rather than spend it.
Chief financial officer (CFO)
A CFO is the officer of a company or business that is primarily responsible for managing the company’s finances as a whole. A CFO handles financial planning, financial risks, financial reporting, and any procedures for record-keeping.
A CEO is different from a CFO. A CEO is responsible for the activities within the organization while a CFO is responsible for only the financial side of your business. Having one person designated for this role makes sense; it splits up any additional duties, so no one person wears multiple hats.
We do the same thing in the military. We have an intelligence officer, financial officer, operations officer, communications officer, and even a supply officer. Every one of them is trained to lead and govern their department, and the duties are clear, if one section impacts another, this is discussed by operations.
If you’re the only one in your business, you are all of the hats and more. You’re also sales, marketing, and recruitment. Building your business and operating in your market are two different things if you spend all your time managing, you’ll never find time for growth. By delegating these important roles, you’re making sure the job gets done.
Learn how to say no, say no to spending your weekends doing things you don’t enjoy, say yes to your life. This word can change your business forever. It can change your life too. We don’t limit our attention. Instead, we do the opposite and try to stretch it. “Maybe I need meditation, maybe I need a counselor, or maybe I need a break.” I’m not sure about the first two, but the last one I know is the answer, you need a break from all the bombardment your mind faces regularly.
If you say no to things that don’t require your attention, you’ll find yourself slowly gaining mental endurance, when we say no, we start to listen to ourselves. There’s so much noise in your life that it’s hard to hear what you want or what excites you, but behind this noise is your life, the one you desire.
Measure what matters
You shouldn’t track all your metrics. You should measure what matters if it doesn’t matter; it doesn’t need extra effort. The worst thing you can do for your business is not to track anything, have zero financial insight, and wait to create an accounting system.
To make progress on your personal goals, you’ll need a benchmark to measure yourself against. Metrics help us focus on the right activities to achieve our individual outcome. Without any data, you’re guessing or shooting in the dark, you might hit something, but it’s more likely you’ll focus on the wrong thing.
Metrics are vital for keeping your cash flow healthy and critical in helping you scale your business, to grow, we must understand why. Metrics help you determine your key performance indicators. These are the things that, no matter what, must be completed. This is your mission as the owner and the small tasks you need to accomplish your goal.
To optimize wealth, one focus should be to increase productivity. Now that you’re focusing on the metrics that matter, you can focus on making the process smoother. Increasing productivity is more about removing obstacles or smoothing out the process rather than adding more.
Being busy isn’t the same as being productive, the best way to determine which you are is by comparing two items. Is your time filled with little improvement, or are you improving with a short time filled? Productivity is the latter end. If you’re busy, you live an unfocused life.
One of the best ways to increase productivity is to reduce your responsibility, some things can be automated, and others can be delegated, the key in leadership is knowing which.
Here are some healthy financial tips to keep your business ahead.
