Now that you’ve taken the course…

Now that you have taken the course, done your homework, and are now ready to invest, the last question arises…How do I buy it?

More often than not, the ability to invest comes down to an issue of cash and credit.  Sometimes people don’t have the cash to invest in the tools they need, and can’t get their cash because they don’t have the tools to do it.  A bad Chicken and Egg circumstance.

Any investment decision is a sliding scale of various preferences, and sometimes price becomes the deciding factor.  Life has taught me the lowest price option usually becomes the most expensive when the dust clears, so there needs to be a better way.

Follow this logic…

If you buy a liquor gun that has limited reporting capacity, all you are getting is portion control, and assume it cost you $2500.  This means you need to take the reports, then do a bunch of number crunching to see it it balances.  If it doesn’t balance all you know is it didn’t balance.  You will spend your time with minimal return in terms of information.

If you spend $1500 on software you now get to the second reporting of variances, why, when,  and who was responsible, giving you far more management value.

Now take your hourly value, say $20 per hour.  Divide the $1500 by $20, for a result of 75 hours.  Factor that by 20% for a total of 375 hours.  That is how to determine a straight function comparison.  The time spent on software will be more rewarding than time spent with manual numbers simply because you will capture more profit.

Another is your peace of mind knowing your business is in good hands. Can you put value to that?

Like everything in life, you get what you pay for, and the Real World is brutally honest in enforcing this rule!
