Working for yourself comes with lots of perks and for most people it can appear to be the ideal situation: make your own schedule, spontaneous coffee trips and mid-day napping… right?
Well, not quite.
Aside from the fact that you actually do work – probably more than you ever have in your life – there are other stressors that non-entrepreneurs tend not to think about. These are benefits that are generally offered in the employee/employer relationship: health insurance, paid time off, sick days, retirement savings and steady predictable pay.
As an entrepreneur, managing your money, takes on a whole new meaning. With the ultimate goal being to avoid monthly panic and actually be able to look at your bank account with peace of mind. This requires an intentional approach to your income.
