Once your business is up and running, you really need to be organised if you want to become profitable. This means having systems in place that you can manage easily and effectively. A system is just a set way of doing things, so that every demand that is thrown at you can be ‘channelled’ in a certain direction and dealt with in a planned way.

Proper systems will help you:

  • Keep track of what your business is doing.
  • Keep calm about what needs to be done.
  • Monitor how well you are getting things done.
  • Improve your ability to do things right the first time.

You also need proper systems to keep your business legal especially if you employ people.
