Your Business Needs Savings, Too

Published 9 months ago • 1 min read

If sales dried up, how long would your business be able to operate?

Do you ever have times when a major expense could wipe out your cash reserves?

Businesses are just as prone to living “paycheck-to-paycheck” as individuals can be. And for that reason, building a healthy savings is just as vital.

It’s hard, especially when starting out, because there are so many demands on the business’s cash flow: various expenses, payroll if you have employees, and of course paying yourself.

But I always encourage my clients to set some aside from every sale for building a cash reserve.

At first, 30 days should be the goal. But in the long-run, a three-month cash reserve is ideal.

It’s enough that you should be able to keep up with the expenses even if there’s a slump in sales for a time.

As a business owner, it’s important to think long-term, not just about the next month or quarter. If you plan for the long-run, you can withstand any curveballs that might be thrown your way.

If you’d like to feel more in control over your business’s cash flow, join me at 6PM Eastern tonight where I’ll discuss tips and strategies for better managing your cash flow to lead to greater success for your business. You can join on Facebook, or register via Zoom.

In support of your vision,

Well, it's been a while since my last blog post. I've been busy with end-of-year preparation for clients, not to mention going back to school to pursue a degree in accounting. I recently wrote a research paper for one of my classes that I thought would be perfect for this blog. The paper examines whether the four-day work week has as many advantages as commonly reported. My research surprised me, to say the least, so I hope you find this post informative. Click Here to Read the Post In...

Many business owners get burned out, putting endless time, energy, and resources into their business, but barely drawing a profit for themselves. That’s not to say the business doesn’t make a profit, but it’s common to simply want to reinvest that profit back into the business, believing that such is necessary to sustain steady growth. In this blog post, I discuss why it’s actually just as important that you withdraw a healthy profit from your business. Your business should serve you just as...
