Starting up can be really expensive. And you have NO money.
Everything costs something. There’s so much to pay for. And it all starts to add up pretty quickly. Yet – still – you have no money!
I get it.
When I started my business 7 years ago, I didn’t have a job. I very quickly watched my bank balance go down….down….down….until there was practically nothing left.
Every single personal purchase I made was scrutinised – did I REALLY need it? What would happen if I didn’t buy it? Could I hold off on it?
I cut down on everything that I possibly could.
Yet I kept asking, “Danielle, you spent how much???”
So I became really meticulous about keeping track of every penny. I could predict exactly when the money would run out if earnings didn’t start coming in.
But in working one-to-one with entrepreneurs, I’ve learned that not everyone is so focused on finance as I was.
To be honest, far too many of them have been…
consciously hiding from their numbers!
Being honest with yourself about finances can be scary.
You know that your bank balance is dwindling.
You know that there’s not much (if any) money coming in.
You know there’s a chance that things won’t work out.
But you also know that you want to keep going!
So you throw your receipts into a draw, promise to look at them later but never get around to them.
You stay in the dark on how much you’re spending.
You set your prices low to attract new business, yet can’t afford to pay yourself another to live properly.
Your social life suffers. You have to ask others for help. And if you keep doing it for long enough, not only will you start to resent the work you do, but those closest to you might too.
there is another way
Understanding your money matters does not need to be intimidating.
Pricing your products and services does not need to be complicated.
And getting to grips with your finances will put you in such a position of control.
Business decisions will become easier.
You’ll be more confident in conversations with clients, suppliers, investors…EVERYONE!
You’ll understand exactly what needs to happen for your business to thrive.
