As a firm owner what should your No.1 strategic objective be?

It has to be profitability. The primal purpose of running a business is to generate a profit.  

Running a more profitable firm may not solve every problem but it does solve a lot of problems.

 If you have a more profitable firm:

  • It is better for your existing team - higher profits can be translated into higher salaries and less stress.
  • It makes it easier to attract new talent – you will be able to offer a combination of salary and flexibility that competitors cannot offer.
  • It is better for your clients - it creates the capacity for you and your team to serve them in a way that protects them and helps them build better businesses.
  • It is better for your clients – you are walking the walk and leading by example.
  • Even if none of those convince you that profitability should be your No. 1 Strategic objective – do it for yourself, do it for your family, do it for your future because you are worth it
