In this Value Growth Series, I’ve developed mini-series for each of the 8 Foundational Components that drive up your business’s value. Thus far, I’ve discussed planning, leadership, sales, marketing, personnel, and operations. Starting with this article, I’ll be talking about finance. Whether you are a solopreneur or an owner of a business with hundreds of employees, I want you to think about finance as a department, or a distinct area of your business. And whether you’ve reached success in spite of your own financial ignorance or you are a financial guru, all business owners can improve in this area of finance.
