Bottom Line Up Front

Bottom Line Up Front

BLUF where conclusions and recommendations are placed at the beginning of the text, rather than the end, to facilitate rapid decision making.

So here goes:

What do you need? Sales up, margins up and costs down.

How do you do it? Find out how other people in your industry do it. Talk to as many people as you can. Have a support network.

What is critical? Measure margins, and other costs, by income stream – and by team, and by industry, and by client, and by location.

Next? Go outside everyday for a walk, or a run, or a ride, or a swim, or a surf, and think about what’s important, what you can change. 

Oh, and be kind and have fun.
