Roads to Profitability Map
The Roads to Profitability map illustrates all the typical expenses that come out of revenue before profit is determined. Our research has shown that most people believe that a company retains 50% to 80% of revenues as profit. One glance at this map will show them the true picture. Your employees will immediately comprehend where the money comes from, where it goes, and how much is left over.
The Difference Between Profit and Cash Map
One of the problems with running a successful business is that most expenses have to be paid before cash comes in from the sale. Cash may not be received from customers for 60 to 90 days after a sale has been made, but many cash outflows need to be immediate (try telling an employee that they’ll get their paycheck in 90 days).
This is why cash is king – a concept that is well understood by those who pay the bills. But those who don’t see the cash inflows and outflows often don’t understand the difference between profit and cash. This map shows clearly how cash flows out weeks and months before any cash is received.
Our money maps come in both an individual size (8 ½ X 11) as well as poster size (45” X 60” laminated). Orders for individual size money maps can be ordered here, call us at 818-591-5955 for poster size.
