Profit Ready

Take your business from good to great

You can’t expect profit if you don’t plan for it. Understanding profit, making a plan, and tracking progress is what separates the great farm and fishing businesses from the good ones.

This workshop will help you decide what kind of business you want, and create, execute and track the strategic plan to get you there.

You will learn

  • Why understanding profit will take your business from good to great
  • Which key factors drive profit in a business, and how to influence them
  • What KPIs you should be looking at, and the different reports you should be using to gather that information
  • How to handle cash flow planning and track your progress against ideal profit and turnover ratios
  • How to run monthly meetings to ensure all players are across the numbers

Come along if

  • You find the office side of things overwhelming, and would like a new approach
  • You want to understand your numbers better

“Overall the program is fantastic... I can't emphasise enough how crucial it is for young people like me to get information about going into business like this. For someone that hasn't been in business before it is daunting to know where to start. Breaking it down into steps is really invaluable.”

"After the Bank Ready workshop, I went to the bank and tried to get a loan. I was unsuccessful, but I kept trying. After the Business Ready workshop, I tried again and got a small loan. Now I've got a paddock, and I’ve got the cows. I got the GST, ABN, and BAS all set up - I've never had them before.”

“I have now set goals. I am taking a new course at university; I'll only be at uni for three years. After that, I plan to be on a property up in NSW somewhere... I want to gain more experience in the corporate industry, so I know what I'm doing.”
