With no hesitation, let’s get down to business.
Whether it sounds like something you agree with or not, this is what Derek Blair has advised you to do. With cost of living on the rise and a dollar that seems extremely ‘easy to disappear with little to show for it‘, means we must constantly monitor what we are spending on. This feat of spending less than you earn, may seemless realistic, when in some households expenditure is often times more than the income. Jamaicans are survivors at heart, and often find means to balance their expenditure. However, if we do not monitor our spending, how would we know when we begin to over-spend?
Your budget changes as do your needs and as do your circumstances. This means, you must approach your budget with that same focused and business-like approach, as you do your tasks at work. You rule your personal finances, and if we are not careful, this can spiral out of control.
In our start-up corner, we explore the phenomenon that some start-ups simply do not make it past their second or third year. There is also a flip side to that coin; how many start-ups are determined to start what they finished and deliver what they promised? Fast forward to today, as a customer, how would you feel if your favourite salon or grocery shop just closed down? Gone is your comfort and convenience. If you have a solution to a problem, then commitment then becomes even more important.
The same goes for other goals that we may have. That we had at the start of the year, however, the first was rough? Expect rough times, your goals would hold little substance without its testaments. Work to finish something you had started.
Happy business Wednesday family!!!
