For entrepreneurs just starting out, it can be difficult to know what monthly expenses will be. To get a general idea,you can view sample business plans online for your field of business. Business plans will include a start-up and projected operating budget, and there are some posted at the Palo Alto Software website.
On the revenue side, Daves past experience with the City of Metropolis and similar projects indicate payment will come in 3 large chunks, then a revenue share of the bridge tolls for 10 years. The 3 large payments are what ESP is bidding on, and they need to cover the costs of each phase. Dave also adds a variable profit margin above costs. Using this profit margin as a variable, his goal is to estimate the lowest margin ESP can charge above its costs to ensure NPV exceeds the companys standard project bidding hurdle rate of 12%.
Establishing a budget for your business is important, whether you are in the start-up phase or you are currently running your company. The biggest reason that businesses fail is that they run out of money. This can mean that they do not have enough revenue coming in, but it can also mean that they are overspending.
Setting up a budget can be as simple as drawing out a budget worksheet with columns allocated to start-up costs (if you are launching a business) and monthly operating expenses. Depending on your type of business, expenses include items like business equipment, office supplies, inventory, shipping costs, furniture, licenses and permits, leases, utility costs, insurance, legal and accounting fees, salaries, travel and transportation costs, entertainment, benefits and advertising and marketing costs.
