When I launched my first business, I didn't pay myself for one year.
10 years later, when I read that back to myself, it seems absolutely ludicrous but it's a fact. I took another part-time job rather than take money out of the company choosing to pay the people around me, rather than me. *Sigh*
But it's not uncommon. In fact, sadly, it's very common in the solo and micro-business world. And it needs to change or how will we all make our businesses the success we want them to be?
As part of my #10SparklingYears celebration, Digital Sparkles is funding and hosting this event to talk about the BIG M and provide practical hints, tips and tracking sheets for us to get to grips with the basics of money in our businesses.
- We'll talk:
- Pricing and paying ourselves
- Personal targets and aspirations
- The real costs of our business activities
- Money in and money out
- Cash flow and forecasting
