PRINCIPLE #4

Maintain conservative financial management, which will dictate future growth.

Melissa Rainho,  Assistant Controller

The premise of maintaining conservative financial management has never been more evident to me than it has in the past few years. Both personally and professionally, I’ve seen individuals and companies struggle because they were not acting as stewards of their finances.

Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve all witnessed global supply chain challenges and economic fallout. Maintaining conservative financial management not only helps you keep your head above water during difficult times, but it allows you to continue to grow and take advantage of opportunities available. I have no doubt this principle has helped us navigate the waters during this time.

It is important to remember that we are all stewards of the company’s finances. Our growth is dependent on the decisions we all make in our day-to-day roles. From purchasing supplies, to bringing in revenue, to being conservative while traveling, all these responsibilities have a direct impact on our future growth.
