Entrepreneurs or businessmen who have not enough knowledge and experience almost certainly make a lot of fatal mistakes in business. Not just beginners, the even senior businessman also can make mistakes. Of course errors in this business should avoid so as not to have a fatal impact on our business continuity.
So what are the mistakes in doing business that we must avoid? Here’s the review.
The Cashier also appointed as Finance Section
Never put the cashier in charge of the company’s finances. If you do, the first mistake in this one business will greatly threaten the company’s survival. Why? Potentially great manipulation of financial statements.
You will definitely find discrepancies between the data in the field and the existing financial statements. This also applies to marketing people. Should not let a marketing person manage the company’s finances. Although his personal nature is neat, thorough and disciplined. Should appoint the right person to focus on handling your business finances.
The Marketing Section Saves Money Too Old
The marketing or sales department should not save too much money. Characteristics of marketing are relatively difficult to save money, so potentially money will use up.
Do not let the sales department in our business save money for the sale in a long time. Should be immediately deposited into the financial section so that the outflow of funds can be more controlled.
When it should fire an employee or remove a member of a business team, it does not have the heart to defend. Though the person is not productive, or even a parasite that damages the system within the company. Do not let someone like this in our company, so as not to bring negative effects that threaten the business.
An entrepreneur must have the mental to fire people. Of course with reason that can be accounted for. If not, a greater loss would befall the company. The nightmare of a bankrupt company and other innocent employees will be affected.
It’s better to fire someone who deserves to be fired. Rather than sacrificing those who contribute positively to the company.
So Leaders in our own business certainly give us more power. Includes the authority to make policy or decisions. If you can not be firm, the people in the company will be a lot of violators. Some even dare to repeat it many times.
Be firm to yourself and also to employees. This will be a positive role model for them. Thus, you will be respected and respected as a leader.
Unite Personal Money with Company Money
This is one very fatal mistake. Company money can be used unintentionally for personal use. So it does not feel the balance of the company suddenly becomes zero. Our business will quickly go bankrupt.
We recommend separating personal financial management with the company. Do not just because the business is self-owned, so casually in the finances. Save the finances in different savings accounts.
Separate your salary as the business owner from income, with reasonable amount only. Do not take company money, unless pressed. But do not forget to be returned.
The more tolerant, then we will be further away from the goals in business. Discipline for a businessman is a mandatory thing that should take precedence.
The discipline of time, discipline in carrying out the plans that prepare. Discipline in recording finances and discipline in other respects. If no discipline, there must be chaos in business. The company will be difficult to develop because many things are not right.
We do not want our business to run aground. Especially just because of the trivial things that we actually realize. Hopefully useful for those of you who will start and also who is running a business.
