Supply Chain Crisis

Posted on: July 20th, 2022

We are living in a perfect storm for small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs).  While consumer behavior is returning to normal coming out of the global pandemic, the onset of inflation, challenges in hiring, and lingering supply chain issues are keeping many businesses off balance.  SMBs need a combination of financial resilience and strategic agility to weather this supply chain crisis.

MLA provides fractional and outsourced finance, strategy, and solutions services to SMBs.  We help small to mid-sized businesses weather all kinds of storms, including those caused by the current supply chain crisis.  Contact us to learn how we can help you.

The Vulnerability of Small to Mid-sized Businesses

SMBs make up nearly half of the US economy.  Yet these businesses exist because there are underserved markets.  Small businesses take advantage of large corporations’ inability to meet all the demands for certain types and styles of goods and services.

But this ability to fill the gaps also makes SMBs vulnerable.  Decisions or events half a world away can have an outsized and unpredictable effect on your business.

In these situations, an intimate knowledge of how money flows through your company becomes invaluable.  And knowing what choices you have, and the impact of your decisions can mean the difference between survival and closing for good.

Overcoming the Supply Chain Crisis

“We’ve seen the impact of supply chain issues on many of our clients,” observes Seth Morgan, MLA Founder, and CEO.  “When unprecedented things happen, our clients turn to us for answers.”

“SMBs are more vulnerable to events beyond their control, but they can also respond more quickly to seize new opportunities,” Morgan notes.
