am thrilled to let you know because you are a SavvyBIZ newsletter
subscriber and/or a SavvyBIZ Place member you will be getting one action
step a day from me in December to make sure you start 2015 off with
confidence in your business and yourself!
day in December (I will take Christmas off!) I will send you an action
step you can easily do that day. If you do each step every day you will
be so on
top of your office, your time management, your finances, your mindset,
and your business you will start 2015 with amazing confidence!
I suggest you make an e-mail folder called "Success 2015" where you can
keep all of the e-mails and can access them easily in the future.
Action Step #8: Show Me the Money
curious as to how you handle your business financials. Do you
have the 'head buried in the sand' approach? The 'I look at my profit
and loss on January 1' approach? Or the 'I am up-to-date and know
exactly where I stand' approach?
Guess where I want you to be?!
make sure you have 4 banking accounts: Business checking,
business savings, personal checking, and personal savings. And,
never let the personal and business intermix. When they do you are just
asking for trouble.
what is your tool for knowing your numbers? My personal
recommendation is QuickBooks - not the online version, but on your
have any tool? Get QuickBooks today. Unless you have an
accountant-type background hire someone to set it up for you. Find
a QuickBooks Certified professional. My recommendation is Elizabeth Sawyer who can work with you virtually.
Let January 1, 2015 be your dividing line in the sand to be totally clear and cognizant of the financial side of your business.
Your checkbook will thank you!
What are you waiting for, Elizabeth?
In case you missed any of the past action steps to take for success in 2015 you can find them at my blog.
#1: Start with Gratitude
#2: Stand Out
#3: Seize the Cards
#4: Send it Now
#5: Start Small
#6: Sign In
#7: Schedule or Be Lost
No one accomplishes anything great alone! Is it time to work with a business coach?
I am SO glad to be working with you, Elizabeth. If it was not
for you, I would have surely closed my business at the end of this
year. Now - I have workshops, classes, speaking gigs and possibilities
already in the new year.
Thank you so much for what you do...even if you did force me out of my sweats to go to an expo!
