Business Owners: Boost Your Year-End Bottom Line By Employing These Mid-Year Agile Strategies Now

James Zahansky, AWMA®
Principal/Managing Partner, Investment Advisor & Chief Goals Strategist

As a business owner, staying adaptable in the ever-changing economic and market landscape is essential for success. By implementing agile strategies throughout the year, you can position your company to improve profit margins and thrive in the competitive market. Let’s explore seven key tactics that our financial planning and wealth management firm recommends to help our business owner clients stay nimble and capitalize on opportunities all year long: 

1. Conduct Regular Budget Reviews and Adjustments

One fundamental aspect of agile financial management is regularly reviewing and adjusting your budget. By closely monitoring income and expenses on a monthly or quarterly basis, you can quickly identify areas of overspending and make necessary changes. This proactive approach ensures efficient resource allocation and keeps you on track to achieve your financial objectives. 

2. Embrace Technology and Automation  

In the digital age, leveraging technology and automation can significantly streamline business operations and reduce costs. Investing in cloud-based accounting software, customer relationship management (CRM) systems, and other digital tools enables more effective financial management, freeing up time and resources for growth initiatives. Automating repetitive tasks, such as invoicing and inventory management, minimizes errors and enhances overall efficiency. 

3. Cultivate a Culture of Innovation

Fostering a culture of innovation within your organization can lead to new ideas, products, or services that set your business apart from competitors and attract new customers. Engage your team regularly, encourage feedback, and brainstorm ways to improve processes or develop new offerings. By embracing change and nurturing a growth mindset, you'll be better prepared to seize opportunities and adapt to market shifts. 

4. Utilize Local Resources and Networks

Connecticut offers numerous local resources and networks to support business growth. Organizations like the Connecticut Small Business Development Center (CTSBDC) and the Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) provide valuable training, mentorship, and networking opportunities. By connecting with other entrepreneurs and industry experts, you can gain insights, establish partnerships, and uncover new avenues for growth.

5. Diversify Revenue Streams

Diversifying revenue streams is a crucial strategy for mitigating risk and boosting profit potential. Consider expanding product or service offerings, exploring new markets, or collaborating with complementary businesses. By establishing multiple income sources, you'll be better equipped to navigate economic downturns or industry-specific challenges, ensuring a more stable and profitable future for your business.

6. Invest in Employee Development  

Your employees are your most valuable asset, and investing in their growth and well-being can yield significant returns. Offer ongoing training and development opportunities to help them acquire new skills and stay current with industry trends. Cultivate a positive work environment that promotes work-life balance, recognizes achievements, and encourages open communication. By prioritizing employee satisfaction and engagement, you'll increase productivity, reduce turnover, and foster a loyal workforce that drives your business forward. 

7. Partner with a Trusted Financial Advisor

Collaborating with a reputable financial planning and wealth management firm like Weiss, Hale & Zahansky Strategic Wealth Advisors can provide invaluable guidance and support as you implement agile strategies to boost your bottom line. Ask Joanne McHugh, who, along with her husband, started a company and sought our guidance at WHZ.  

"We have a variety of financial goals, both business and personal, and the team at Weiss, Hale & Zahansky have really helped us to align and prioritize all of them, which is no small feat," says Joanne. "They're also really agile and nimble, so when things change for us or the business, like when we had to pivot during COVID, they're right there to look at how that affects our business and our personal plans and then strategize on how to adjust."  

An experienced and engaged advisor should offer you these types of personalized recommendations tailored to your unique business needs, helping you to identify growth opportunities and develop a comprehensive financial plan to achieve your long-term goals.
