Show Notes

  • Finance and accounting with new clients- “I want to know more about my finances, but I don't understand them.”

  • Clients have to see the value in their numbers themselves

  • How do you want to make more money if you don't even know how much money you're making right now?

  • You need to set up your financials in a way that makes sense to you.

  • Profit is used to pay down debt. Profit is used for your distributions. Profit is used for you to buy inventory and equipment.

  • Paar Melis gives you a report card at the end of the month. Focus on the red items and that's going to tell you everything that you need to know.

  • Numbers don't lie, but they can be misleading

  • Instead of charging credit card fees, instead, raise your labor rate, and raise your parts margin 3%. Now you're making that credit card fee on every person
