When it comes to our health and well-being, we make preventative care a priority. Most health professionals understand the benefits of preventative care as it relates to their patient’s health. Preventive care is any medical service that defends against health emergencies. It includes doctor visits, such as annual physicals, well-woman appointments, and dental cleanings. Some medicines can also be preventive, such as immunizations, contraception, and allergy medications.
Preventive care is important because it helps you stay healthy and access prompt treatment when necessary, and it can also help reduce your overall medical expenses. Stay healthier and get more effective treatment – Many types of screenings and tests can catch a disease before it starts.
When it comes to your health, preventative care has many advantages, and very little or minimal disadvantages. So why not do preventative care on your business? After all, your business is your livelihood, it is your own, and something you have worked hard to grow and protect. This is why doing routine preventative care on your business, is just as important as the preventative care you do for your health.
There are many different things you could do to help your business stay “healthier” and keep it moving efficiently and effectively. As your business grows and evolves, it needs to receive routine care and changes if necessary.
One such example of preventative care is a review of your business agreement. You may have entered into the business agreement when it was a small business and did not have much profit or inventory. As your business grows, it may have additional needs or may need additional precautions. A periodic review of your business agreement is a good idea, so that as your business grows and evolves, your business agreement adequately addresses the concerns that may arise.
Another example is the role and involvement of each of the partners. As a business grows, and evolves, so do the key players involved with the business. Perhaps one of the partners is going through a divorce, or another is just starting to build a family which allows him or her to invest only a minimal amount of time in the business. This directly affects their involvement and roles in the company. A review of the obligations and duties of each person is important to address changing circumstances. This could also help prevent disputes, costly litigation, or even a dissolution, down the line.
It is also a good idea to practice preventative care with your business when it comes to accounting, profits and taxes. As your business grows and changes, and as laws continue to change, it is necessary to assess whether you are making the right decisions when it comes to the financial welfare of your business. Things to consider are whether you are getting the best possible tax benefits, and maximizing profits. Whether future changes need to be addressed now so that you are setting the scene for changes in the future. As time passes, your business model will change. It is a good idea to assess the situation to assure that you are getting the best possible benefits you can.
Preventative care is a non-negotiable when it comes to your health. It should be the same for your business. It is the only way to assure your business is running efficiently, maximizing profits, and avoiding any costly disputes or litigation.
