Here are some valuable tips on how to thrive with your business

Crunch the numbers

Up to date and financial data to predict cash-flows, ability to survive, and thriving possibilities. Stop wondering where your cash went (one month you’re down and one month you were doing good).


Start dealing with your numbers while you’re small, and when you grow to understand it as you scale bigger, it’s not just about revenues but the actual profit. Price-wise it’s more competitive to use offshore staff than using local for the same quality of results.

Understand ROI

When you’ve invested a certain amount of dollars on an undertaking, there might be a time lag and not know exactly what the return on investment is. You’d need to understand whether you need to keep doing that or not and that is through ROI (return on investment).

About Scott Trevethan

As well as being known as The Modern Accountant, Scott Trevethan is a small and medium-sized business evangelist. Ever since he read the E-Myth by Michael Gerber, Scott has been a passionate advocate for financial understanding as a way to ensure long-term security and success. Born into an accounting family, Scott joined Deloitte straight from University and was engaged in the Audit and later the Insolvency division of that firm. It was in Audit he learned how large and successful businesses were built and operated. By stark contrast, Insolvency was where badly built businesses went to be buried, leaving despair and ruin in their path. Most were let down by poor record-keeping and general lack of financial astuteness.

Scott resolved to save as many Small and Medium-sized businesses from insolvency as he could. This lead to a passion for educating business owners and helping them to understand their finances so they could feel confident of a prosperous future. Scott’s professional career has spanned accounting firms, cafes and consulting. At the time of writing, he runs GoGlobal, a team of accountants and bookkeepers in the Philippines who provide Australian businesses with affordable and highly valuable services.
