As business leaders, the 1st July is a wonderful time of year! Every line item in the profit and loss resets to $0. Representing a clean slate and a new start line. Happy new financial year!
Effective planning for FY24, requires reflection on FY23 and a good cuppa! At this time of year I am often working with clients to help them celebrate their wins, look for areas of improvement and map out the year and years ahead.
As I do this for our business, I have a full heart as I think about all that has been achieved around me during FY23. Some of the highlights for the clients I have worked with include:
When I reflect on some of these achievements of my clients I feel a sense of pride and excitement! I have held a privileged position to see first hand what it takes. What tough decision are made, what sacrifices are made, what values have guided them and what a journey they have been on to achieve these results.
Sometimes it has felt immediate and for others it has been 5+ years in the making.
I applaud every single one of you for your perseverance and accomplishments!
As a collective, you have taken me from Brisbane to Townsville to London to Leeds to Hobart and back again. I've certainly racked up from frequent flyer points this year! But I have loved every single minute of it.
As I make another cup to tea and start to think about what $0 on the P&L represents for FY24 and what it might mean for my business, I thank you all for an incredible journey.
