As an entrepreneur, having financial control of my business makes the difference between me managing my business or my business managing me. One of the main reasons I became an entrepreneur was to be independent and have more control over my life. The minute I start to let the financials of my business slide a little, I start to feel like my business is making decisions for me and I am no longer in control. Putting systems in place that make the bookkeeping and financial planning manageable will allow you to get out of the weeds and stay focused on the vision. It’s a great feeling.
