It is very important to manage your money and finances. It is absolutely crucial that you do well at this activity so that you can succeed, both as a person and with your business.

One advice is to track your income and expenses with a spreadsheet. This can help you keep track of where your money is going.

It is easy to think that a little trip to the coffee shop is not going to break the budget. However, if you do that too often, you could be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on coffee or tea.

Make an effort to track your income and expenses. You can log this daily or weekly.

Here are some examples of income:

  • Employment income
  • Investment income
  • Side money from an extra job or project
  • Refunds
  • Winnings

Here are examples of expenses:

  • Mortgages
  • Rents
  • Utilities
  • Autos
  • Gas or fuel
  • Goods for a business
  • Services

The lists for both of these categories can go on a long time. The point is to classify and track your income and expenses.

Knowing where your money is going is the first step in controlling your finances. Consider tracking your income and expenses on a regular basis and see how it works for you.
