Mastering Your Business Finance

The ability to be able to handle your finances appropriately is key to sustaining your business. While earning the money is good, if not carefully managed, it may lead to bankruptcy. 

Here are Some Tips for Becoming Better at Managing your Business Finances.
1. Don't Spend What You Don't Have:  Many business owners struggle with this as they claim that the amount they get paid does not cater to their monthly needs, hence they resort to buying things on credit.
It is essential to realize that getting things on credit is not different from spending what you don't have or spending today what you'll only earn tomorrow. Once this becomes a habit, you will continuously be living on tomorrow's income and unable to gain control of your financial life.
Spend within your means get credits only when necessary and make sure to pay off as soon as possible.

2. Say No to Compulsive Buying: This is one of the terrible financial habit’s individuals develop over time.  It is the act of purchasing items even when you know deep within you that you do not need them for your business. Even in cases where a purchase might be a wise investment, deciding to buy without due consideration, can be disastrous.
Decide before you go shopping. Even quickly jotting a list before you enter the store helps. It’s a quick reminder of why you’re shopping in the first place. Stick to your list and save money. 

3. Budget for the Unexpected: Great financial plans can fall apart when an unaccounted-for expense suddenly crops up.  Always have a budget category for "unforeseen expenses" and assign a substantial amount of money to it each month. You may have a budget that looks good to you now, but unless you set aside some money for unforeseen expenses you may not be prepared financially to handle some of these issues.

4. Use Digital Tools to Help you Keep Track: The days where "balancing your books" involves actual books have long been forgone. We are in a digital world now, where, with the use of computers and the internet we have access to a plethora of applications that can help manage our finances. A few Apps like Excel Spreadsheet, YNAB, Quickbook readily come to mind.  The right Apps can help you manage your finances thoroughly.
