The Rainmaker Process

We know what your first thought is. What the heck is the Rainmaker process? Here’s a rundown.

Every business wants to thrive, and the key to doing that is often found in the financial data. As such, TLG has developed a system designed to help our clients organize and grow their operation with the goal of creating profit and cash flow. 

We call this system The Rainmaker Process and it is made up of six essential steps. We have come up with an analogy for this process, comparing it to a squirrel who is collecting acorns to prepare for winter. 

The squirrel (the business owner) must collect 6 different acorns to survive the winter. Each acorn collected represents a different step in the Rainmaker process. Every step focuses on a unique aspect of the business, that, together, unlock the power of profitability. These steps include: Financial setup/cleanup, monthly bookkeeping, Profit First, Cost Analysis, Cash Flow strategy and long term financial Advisory.

Before we can even start improving our financials we need to know exactly what we are working with. This can mean setting up or cleaning up your financial data inside of QuickBooks. This will allow for easy tracking income, expenses, and other financial data.

Celebrate Your Acorn Stash
(Pay Yourself)

This is our favorite step! Paying yourself isn’t just about enjoying the fruits of your labor, it’s about creating and following a long term plan that will help you to accomplish your goals and follow your dreams. Setting aside money for yourself, in the beginning, makes paying yourself much easier in the end.

As a business owner you’ve likely experienced the struggle getting out from under the business, and making it work for you! This step focuses on structuring your business and developing a strategy for maintaining a consistent cash-flow, even during slow business cycles.

Now that the data is organized the trick is to keep it that way. Disorganization is one of the fastest ways to make mistakes that can ruin cash flow and cause strain on your company. We will meet with you monthly to make sure you are staying up to date on any financial changes.
