About Eric Anderson

A Brief Bio

Eric W. Anderson, Sr. is President of MPG Management, Inc. Eric specializes as an independent management consultant that develops financial reports, sales plans and operating budgets for small business owners regardless of business industry.

Eric believes that “your business must have an internal financial system, to serve as a base for managing the business. You need to make sure that your financials are set up in such a way that allows management to PLAN – EXECUTE – CHECK – ADJUST.”

For a small business owner “to truly become a high performing company with improved profitability, you must plan for it, evaluate financial performance and take action quickly to address problems as they arise”. Eric will train you that profit is not what’s left over after all your expenses are paid, but must be budgeted as the first line of expense in a disciplined planning process.

Eric believes that a comprehensive budget is a formal statement of the business owner’s expected and preplanned performance. It serves as a control device to help measure performance against the plan and analyze variances so changes can be made to improve future performance.
