Launching a business is one of the biggest challenges you can ever face in your adult life and there are so many hurdles and hoops you have to jump through along the way. 

As a woman in business, and a new business at that, there will be a lot of issues and sanctions we have to face when trying to make our way in the world of business. Today we are going to take a look at some of the money tips that every small business absolutely needs to know this year, whether you are a new professional or a seasoned one.

 

Stay on top of deadlines

Deadlines should always be taken seriously and if you want to make a real impact on your business in a positive way, it is important for you to take on deadlines and stick to them with payments. The moment you start to struggle with payments in a business, you need to make necessary cuts and changes in order to stay afloat.

 

Monitor spending

When running a business in those first few crucial months, it is more important than ever to monitor your spending and take into account every single penny. As a small business you will have a little budget to work with and as well as this you will want to save money so that you can increase your profit margin. Be sure to keep a record of all business related spending and at the end of the month, take the opportunity to improve your habits for the month ahead.


Save money on supplies 

If you are a manufacturing business, or one which uses a lot of physical supplies, it is important for you to save money on these items. You can usually broker a deal with a supplier if you buy from them often, and you’ll be able to buy in bulk and ask for a discount considering your continuous purchases. This is a handy way to save money on your supplies and also maintain a good relationship with a supplier.

 

Separate business and personal funds

It can be daunting to run a business yourself and when it comes to accounting, this can easily be the most complex part of the job. If you are looking for a way to make the process of financing a little easier and also make sure you don’t overspend for your business, you should separate your personal and business funds into two bank accounts. This will ensure that your spending stays within a strict barrier and you never dip into your own personal al moment because this habit can be a dangerous one for your empire. 


Time purchases 

If you have time-sensitive purchases to complete each month for the business, make sure to fit your business around it. For example, if you know that you always get an invoice paid into your account on a particular day of the month, arrange your bills and rent for 3-5 days afterwards to avoid heading into an overdraft. Be savvy with your spending and you’ll be much more effective.
