This research will begin with the statement that going through the state of a business is one of the contemporary and most recognized ways through which modern-day business people recognize the strengths and weaknesses of a certain business. The business under review, in this case, is a small business, a wine shop. It is important to go through the general situation that the business thrives in an effort to understand the best way to manage it. The size of the business is generally small and deals with the sale of wines. The large part of the business can be sighted after the first entrance to the shop as it does not have multiple doors except one leading to the storage room. There are racks present in the premises where the wines are stored until customers come to purchase it. The business is in an open place and thus there is sufficient lighting. Moreover, there are also bulbs in the premises since the sale of wine goes on to the night. There are two assistants who assist in the ordering and the arrangement of material in the premises. In addition, there is a telephone for the customers who might want to book a certain brand of wine. The business in question is rather thriving in an environment that has a lot of active customers. This is got from the manner in which it has managed to have a steady flow of sales per unit. This one of the aspects that keeps a business alive and conformation with the environment generally comes in as another positive chip. The breakeven point is recognized as the point in business where the revenue that the company makes is equivalent to the amount of expenses it incurs. In the stated business, the breakeven point is high.

Having seen the shallow margin that the business makes has implications for the business. These implications come in as both positive and negative regarding the time it takes. If the business has short term goals, the small margins cannot come in handy in their fulfillment. However, in the accomplishment of long term goals for the business, this can work as cumulative amounts of money would get retained in the business after deduction of the general fixed costs that are the rent, staff costs, telephone and others.

Going through the profitability of the business is another major aspect to bring in when identifying the actual stature of the business (Barrow, 2011,57) Looking at the sales that the business makes, it is clear to state that the profitability of the business is in line with what a small business of the sort. This is from the fact that a business entity such as the wine shop managing to have 20 Euro profit margins per unit is great. When that amount of money is multiplied with the amount of units sold in a year, the total exceeds initial capital investment by far.

Understanding the liquidity of the company is another aspect that a company ought to consider when going about the daily running (Blackwell, 2008, 75). This is from the fact that for a business to keep on running, it is important to ensure that in case of anything the amount of money lost is not much. The business is well set in this from the previous fact stated regarding the amount of money that the business makes in a whole year. The wine industry is one industry that is always up from the fact that it does not have seasons and is not affected by factors such as weather. If the
