Words of Wisdom
Invest in a good accounting system and a great Financial Coach. As your business grows, whether that is in team or income, an accounting system is vital. Don’t put all your receipts, bank statements, bills etc into a shoe box and send it to your accountant on a quarterly basis. You need to be proactive at managing your business finances. If you do not understand all the financial aspects of running a business, invest in a great Financial Coach or freelance CFO. As a business owner, you need to be empowered to make decisions and knowing your financial status helps you to make informed decisions.
