Taking a calculated and disciplined approach when looking at all facets of your business and its finances is critical to ensuring long term success for your business. By focusing on overall risk management and what could potentially go wrong will save a lot of time and stress should such an event occur. When evaluating risk, you should look at it from three points - good, bad and necessary. Good and necessary risk is deemed to be where you want to guide your business and how things play out long term. Certain situations may be okay to suffer some short-term pain or volatility to achieve a long-term goal; this would still be considered a good risk. A necessary risk is one to take when that will determine your viability of a business moving forward or achieving your long-term growth plans. Without taking these risks, the results you are looking for will just not be achievable, period. Certain risks can sometimes be disguised as a good one, but in reality, is a bad risk that has not been evaluated from all angles and possible outcomes. These risks need to be avoided at all costs and you as a business owner cannot get drawn in without doing a proper risk assessment.
