We developed this Financial Goal sheet a number years ago based upon a template we found in another industry. As you know, the printing industry was one of the first industries in the U.S. to actually collect and share financial ratios for operating a profitable printing businesses. I have authored, along with my good friend Larry Hunt, more than 16 Financial Benchmarking Studies, and the data presented on this goal sheet is based upon these financial benchmark studies.
Ideally, this one-page handout is designed to be stapled to your bulletin board or somewhere else near your desk where it will catch your eye every single day. There are four key ratios and one $$$ amount that you should almost commit to memory. Your financial statements (specifically your profit & loss statement) should easily capture and provide these basic ratios. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give me a call, or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
