Government bailouts will save me!
Sometimes spa owners say some pretty stupid shit. I’ve heard some absolute gems like “I don’t have a marketing budget” or “I need better equipment to get more customers.”
But the one that takes the cake is this: “I don’t have to worry about my spa being shut down because the government will bail me out.”
The government is NOT going to fix your cash flow problem.
As you’re eagerly anticipating that first government check, millions of other small business owners are too.
And while some cash in your pocket is no doubt a good thing…IT’S NOT GOING TO FIX THE PROBLEM OF HAVING ZERO CUSTOMERS.
Apologies in advance for this rant, but this topic has me fired up.
For starters, how long did it take for your government to even AGREE on the terms of bailout checks? In the US, it took like a month.
And you’re only going to be getting ONE check (as far as anyone knows right now).
How far will that $1,200 really get you?
Maybe that will cover your business’s rent for a month (if you’re lucky enough to live in an area with a low cost of living).
What about your personal residence? What will $1,200 do for you there?
Now let’s factor in essentials, like food. Prices for food aren’t going to magically plummet during a crisis. If anything, they’ll go up.
Keeping your lights on, your water running, your trash being picked up all contributes to the money flowing out of your pocket right now.
What about your car payment? Insurance? Not going away.
Do you pay for health insurance? You know they want their piece of the pie.
What about internet, cable, and phone bills? Do you think they’ll keep your service running if you don’t fork over what you owe?
The bottom line is that you’re screwed if you don’t have either enough cash on hand to sustain you, your family and your business for the next few months or if you don’t have money flowing into your business.
I can’t help you with the first part – if you don’t have savings to cover your expenses for a few months (and, let’s be real, nearly half of the people in the US can’t even scrounge together $400 right now), you have to put everything you possibly can into GETTING CASH INTO YOUR BUSINESS.
If you haven’t grasped the magnitude of this situation yet, you’re risking your business and your family.
It’s time to ACT.
It’s NOT time to wait for the government to fix things for you.
They can’t agree on anything – and even when they do, they put the interests of big corporations ahead of small businesses like yours.
You need to get money coming into your business ASAP.
If you’re not, YOU WILL CLOSE DOWN FOREVER.
Unfortunately, that’s not hyperbole, that’s #facts.
