Introducing: The Creative Finance Mission

“The ‘bosses’ are panicking. They’re going, ‘Oh, cut back, lose staff. That’s the way forward. That’ll save money.’ Will it? Who’s to say that hiring staff won’t save money in the long run?

“New Girl”, season 1, The Office (UK), BBC Two, 2001.

If you recognise these words, and the noughties TV character who bit his goateed lip as he said them, you are probably cringing a little right now. Sorry.

But, confused and slightly illogical ideas aside, it is also worth remembering that the same man had previously increased profit in his branch by 17% and cut expenditure without losing a single member of staff (neither of which were his proudest moments, by the way). So, inept and fictional as David Brent was, is there something to be said for a more creative approach to business?

We think so, and have put together a brand new series of articles to put our money where our mouth is.

What do all businesses want? More money in, less money out.

It’s a straightforward concept, but easier said than done. Common strategies include increasing prices, losing staff, expanding your product range, working longer hours, switching to cheaper source materials, or simplifying your service, but none are particularly appealing.

Ideally, your goal should be to increase your income and reduce your expenditure without reducing the quality of your service or product, or impacting quality of life for you or your staff. Some might say that it’s not possible, but with some creativity and the right guidance, we know that it is.

Every two weeks we will be releasing a new chapter with tips, ideas, and innovative strategies on how you can be more creative in your approach to business finance. Each chapter will highlight and explain a different financial tactic that could increase the money coming into your business, reduce the money going out, or both.

At Bluestone Leasing we have been helping businesses across all sectors to grow and thrive through commercial finance for over 25 years, including a few economic recessions and a global pandemic, and we have more than enough experience and expertise to share.

But we won’t be the only ones putting our ideas into the “melting pot” (again, sorry), and we aren’t in the business of preaching where we don’t practice. Several of the chapters will be created in collaboration with clients and partners who are living proof that these creative financial tactics can have a significant impact in the real world of business.

If tips and strategies that will increase the money coming into or going out of your business sounds appealing, click here to subscribe to the Creative Finance series and we’ll let you know when a new chapter has been published.

“The growth and stability of UK businesses inevitably leads to a stronger UK economy, and that is what the team at Bluestone Leasing are striving towards. We have so much commercial experience and financial knowledge in the team that could be gold dust in the right hands, and we are excited to share it through our new Creative Finance series.”
