Break-even: Ano ang meaning, kahulugan o ibig sabihin?

Ang break-even ay isang terminong nagmula sa finance, ngunit ginagamit din sa negosyo. Tinutukoy ng break-even ang sitwasyon kung saan hindi ka kumita at hindi ka rin nalugi. Sa Tagalog, balik-taya ka lang.


Halimbawa: Si Juan ay hindi pumasok sa kanyag trabaho noong Lunes, dahil naisipan niyang pumunta ng casino upang magsugal. Ang sahod ni Juan sa isang araw sa kanyang trabaho ay P500. Kailangang din mag-commute si Juan papunta ng casino at pauwi, at ang pamasahe niya ng balikan ay P50. Kapag nanalo si Juan ng P550 sa casino, balik taya o break even lang siya, dahil kelangan niyang bayarin ang kanyang sarili ng P500 para sa oras na dapat kinita niya sa trabaho (opportunity cost), at kelangan din niyang bayaran ang pamasahe niya. Kapag mas mababa sa P550 ang panalo niya sa casino, talo pa siya (loss). Kapag mas malaki naman sa P550 ang panalo niya sa casino, may kinita siya o profit.

Entrepreneurs will often have amazing business ideas, but they put them on hold due to a lack of capital. They assume that their idea will never get far off the ground unless they have major funding behind them. If you’re thinking of starting a business, you first need to come up with a realistic idea you can turn into a product or service.
Make sure that you build your business around your skills and knowledge. Your friends and family members can help you spread the word, and past business contacts can introduce your brand to their professional contacts as well. When you start a business, there’ll usually be a period when you’re investing lots of time, effort and money before you start making a profit. Before you do this, it’s important to research your market to make sure your customers will really pay for your product or service.
You may have the best business plan in the world, but without customers, your business is nothing. Create a thoughtful customer-acquisition plan and marketing strategy and be prepared to explain it to investors, partners and stakeholders, as this will undoubtedly be the first questions they ask.
Don't be afraid to fail. When you have an idea, figure out the pieces you need quickly, go to market, believe in it, and continue to iterate. If you need more investment, you might be able to raise money to fund your growth plan by selling shares in your business. You can do this by getting friends and family to invest.
Have some written recollection that you are partners, who's responsible for what, and how much money each of you put in.
Ask yourself what people are required to make it work for this idea, for this business?" Eighty percent of start-ups fail because the founders get bored, discouraged, or something else, and they move on to other things, not because of some catastrophe.
Spend a lot of time boiling down what their business is, what it does, and what it represents. If you nail down a 2-5 minute summary that will pay a lot of dividends throughout the life of your business. Do what you know… and love! It will resonate with your customers, employees, and potential investors. And make all the hard work worthwhile. Test it with them and get feedback. Find out what they’d be willing to pay for it. Try out different prices with different customers in a consistent, realistic way to see what people will really pay. Can you make enough money for a return on your investment?
