In business, the line between success and failure is often very fine. If you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or you’re trying to expand a small business, you may feel like you’re trying to master the art of juggling. You want to invest, but you don’t want to be out of your financial depth. You want to increase productivity but not at the expense of customer service. The goal is to generate as much profit as possible, and often this involves the tricky tasks of reducing your overheads and increasing your sales. If your overheads are threatening to put you under, the sooner you act, the better.
