Robust 3-Statement Financial Model: For Startups

I had to really dig deep into my old accounting knowledge and do quite a bit of research to get this model right. It is a fully functional and inter-connected excel template that has all 3 financial statements functioning on it. The purpose was to build something that fits 90% of cases. This is typically called a 3-statement financial model and commonly requested for startups by investors/creditors.

Security System Services Startup Financial Model - Includes Expansion MRR and Negative Churn

This financial model was built specifically for the security and alarm services business. It is very similar to a regular SaaS business where you have monthly recurring revenue for subscribers. I have built up to 3 pricing tiers for what customers may pay per month.

When and How Much Inventory to Re-Order: Excel Template

This is a useful excel template (I built it in google sheets as well) to manage inventory re-ordering. Based on a few variable inputs per SKU, the logic in this model will display useful metrics to help you stay on top of inventory levels.

Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Dashboard - Scoring by Category

There are many kinds of views one can take to try and gauge the overall health of their organization or business. This often is said to be done best by a KPI dashboard or some kind of dashboard that reports on different metrics. This is normally done on a 12-month view and/or an annual total.

PaaS - Product as a Service: 5-Year Financial Model

This is one of the more important excel templates I have been looking to build for a while now and I am really happy with the way it turned out. PaaS, or product-as-a-service, just means you sell a product (such as an elliptical machine) and you attach a paid subscription service to it (such as a subscription to fitness trainers that comes into the screen of your elliptical).

Google Sheets Database Reporting: Multiple Criteria

It turns out there are severe limitations to the google sheet filter formula if you have a fairly complex list of data points about something and you want to test that something against multiple things before the logic decides to pull that given row into a summary report.

Template for Marketing Spend Return on Investment - Recurring Revenue

When I first thought about the difficulties of this calculation, I realized it is probably something nearly any recurring revenue business model struggles to figure out accurately. The problem is figuring out the ROI (return on investment) of the money you spend in a given month on sales/marketing as it relates to the future revenue directly related to that spend.

Weekly Employee Scheduling Template

This is a simple template that anyone can use to manage employee schedules. It is based on a weekly time-frame and has a lot of smart summaries to check the schedule that you have submitted.

10-Year Financial Model for ATM Business Startup

I have been looking for a new and different type of financial model to build over the last few months and I came across the ATM industry. It turns out you can run an ATM business. It is just about giving the vendor/merchant of the locations you are wanting to set up at a good deal and then just a matter of purchasing the machines and having legal in order. Usually, you can get set up with an ATM processing company to protect you and they will take a fee per transaction.

Sales Pipeline Template: Funnels and Gauges in Excel

This is a good tool to help sharpen the sales pipeline, extract more value from it, and get an immediate picture of where certain accounts stand within the sales process that you have identified. This template can be used across many individual teams or just one person.
