A NOTE FROM OUR MANAGING DIRECTOR
A good friend of mine recently made a comment that she is so busy running her business that she doesn’t have time to work on her business. It’s not the first time I’ve heard this – as small business people we wear many hats and are becoming more and more time poor as we try and ‘do it all’.
Consider this: your time is valuable. Sure, you could clean the office yourself, but your time is probably better spent doing the ‘tricky’ stuff rather than cleaning floors (plus, a professional cleaner would probably do a better job, let’s be honest!)
The same can be said for debt management – how hard can it be to keep your cash flow in check or chase up an overdue invoice? The truth is, it can be very difficult and time-consuming which is why companies like Optimum Recoveries exist. Skills aside, we’re fully licensed, we know the rules inside-out and most importantly, we get results for our clients (however, we’re terrible cleaners).
So, how’s your bottom line looking so far this financial year?
