“Finance is essentially the lifeblood of a business.”
— Melissa Houston
What the heck are business finances… and why do they matter for my small business?
These are questions that I get all the time from people who think that business finances are only important if you run a large corporation or a billion-dollar business.
In reality, this assumption couldn’t be further from the truth.
This episode will answer the above questions, and hopefully help to underline the importance of understanding, monitoring, recording, and analyzing your numbers on a regular basis — even if your business is just a small team… or even just you alone.
All businesses need a business financial plan.
Your business finances are the way that you manage your money in your business… and 87% of businesses fail due to money mismanagement.
Let’s make sure that your business isn’t one of them!
