#73 Navigating Financial Hurdles: A Year End Reflection

E73 podcast cover lisa turner on lounge, with mic on table in foreground

As another incredible year comes to a close, it’s time to reflect on the journey we’ve shared as entrepreneurs. One topic that every business owner faces is financial hurdles. Today, I want to take a moment to acknowledge and tackle these challenges and help us set our sights on a bright year ahead.

Just like you, I run my own business, and I understand the hard work, challenges, and rewards that come with it. Financial hurdles can manifest in various ways—a sudden dip in revenue, unexpected costs, or complex processes like paying employees. Navigating these hurdles can be tricky if you don’t have the right systems and processes in place. It requires keeping a keen eye on your numbers and having the right support team around you.

As we reflect on the past year and any financial hurdles we encountered, it’s important to remember that success isn’t solely measured by revenue and profit. Running our own businesses allows us to prioritise our personal lives, support others, and build a nurturing environment for our team. These non-financial metrics play a significant role in our overall sense of fulfilment and success. I know personally that the flexibility of running my own business so that I can be there for my family, is well worth the stress!

As we wrap up this year, take a moment to reflect on your business’s journey and the financial hurdles you faced. Celebrate your achievements and resilience. It’s no easy feat to navigate the complexities of running a business, and 2023 was particularly tricky for a lot of small businesses out there. Always remember, you’re not alone on this journey. There is a whole community supporting you.
