Comment on Using ratios to analyze health of your business from article on February 3, 2023 / Introducing Security Owners Group
          This email struck a chord with me. I’ve long noted the lack of standards across our industry when it comes to the performance of the business itself. With so much focus on the RMR value we forget that a well-run business also has value. This is why I started Security Owners Group. I got tired of other industries running circles around us in profitability.
          Security Owners Group has a service called Secret Financials that we launch every q1. In this, we select groups of 5 security companies, review their financials and anonymize them, then review them as a group, with a focus on ratios and giving action items on how they can improve profitability by highlighting specific ratios and actions they can take to improve them; at $600 it’s cheap.
          Margin, profit per hour, revenue per employee, quick ratio, golden ratio, asset utilization… all of the key business metrics are built on ratios. And it’s unfortunate that so many in our industry fail to realize that you can be profitable now while also building equity in their RMR. There is still room for a few more companies to join this year’s round of secret financials.

          We also have a free Facebook group of verified security company owners geared towards helping owners get the resources and advice they need. This group can be found at  This group can be joined free; no charge to belong
          You’ll be glad to know the membership of 500 owners overwhelmingly recommend the Kirschenbaum Contracts!

          Thank you for letting the industry know about this group and the two options to be involved.  Focusing on best practices and keeping an eye on the bottom line is one way to succeed.  The other way is luck.  Choose the former.
         And, BTW, the group recommending Kirschenbaum Contracts is much appreciated and certainly attests to wise leadership.
