Ep.#1 [THEME SIX]
Today we are kicking off theme six, How to Grow The Equity Value of Your Business.
In this episode, Ryan Tansom is going solo to explain what's to come in the next couple of weeks within this theme. He explains the importance of setting a proper (and achievable) financial goal based on what you, as the business owner, want to take home in distributions each quarter.
Ryan explains how setting a proper financial goal will help you become strategic with your budgeting and reinvest into the company with a desired ROI each quarter.
This episode is a high-level overview of this theme. Throughout this series, we dive deep into financial planning, tying marketing into your financials, and discovering an easier way to map out your processes and procedures.
