If you thought the title was a bit confusing let me enlighten you.
The answer is Yes. See Beyond Numbers is the title of John Jantsch’s latest podcast episode on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast.
This is one of my favourite podcasts and I recommend it highly.
In the podcast John interview’s Greg Cabtree the author of Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential.
I recently wrote a post entitled “Why Don’t Profits Equal Cash?” and Greg’s message is on exactly this theme. He has spent many years helping small business owners overcome number blindness to enable them to manage their business using the numbers that count!
You can access the podcast episode here. I would strongly recommend any business owner spending the 20 minutes to listen to the interview and I would then challenge any of you NOT to buy the book. I did and have it now on my Kindle Reader on my iPad.
If you go to Greg’s site Seeing Beyond Numbers you can download some tools for improving labour, cost and profit and the book teaches you how to use these. Greg is also adamant that business owners should be focusing on understanding and managing cash flow not profits and tax minimisation. A man after my own heart!
So, my recommendations – go to Duct Tape Marketing and subscribe to John Jantsch’s list for his emails. Find him in iTunes and subscribe to the free podcast there. Then listen to the episode which you can also directly access here. Then go to Amazon and buy Greg’s book. It will be the best money you spend on your business this month, if not this year! – click on this link. Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential
