Business Advice & Planning

Business Advice from an experienced
small business consultant

Many small business owners dive straight into the deep end of business ownership without taking the time to properly plan. They soon realise that the amount of information to sift through when starting a business can be overwhelming. Once the business is up and running, it’s common to get bogged down in the day-to-day operations and the time to plan is lost.

Decision fatigue is not uncommon from day one. From choosing a merchant provider and point of sale system through to accounting platforms and rostering systems.

That’s where the team at Ten X come in.

Whether you’re about to open a new business, or you’ve been in business for a while and need advice to take your business to the next level, the team at Ten X Advisors can help. We’re highly experienced and passionate about providing business advice and planning to businesses like yours.

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

When it comes to planning for your small business, we’ll work with you to map out where you want your business to be in the future. Six months, one year, two year or five years should be considered. Once this is established, we assist you to develop a detailed action plan to get you there.

From a financial standpoint this will include:

  • 1

    Developing both breakeven point targets and revenue targets to reach your desired outcomes. Breakeven is the amount of revenue your business needs to generate to cover all costs.

  • 2

    Cost benchmarks based on your specific type of business
    benchmarked against similar businesses. Specific benchmarks include food cost, beverage cost, and staff costs.

  • 3

    Development of key performance indicators specific to your business.
    These let you know if you are on or off track and guide you where you need to focus whether it be revenue or costs.

  • 4

    A cash flow forecast to assist you in managing the timing of payments.
    This lets you understand the cash needs of your business and when your liabilities need to be settled.

  • 5

    Forecasting performance projections based on historical and expected performance. This is usually compiled through a review of data and inputs provided by you.

Ten X ensures you are actively driving your business performance towards your goals. Not simply sitting back and waiting to see what happens.

This is what will set your business up for success and put you in a position for growth.
