The Determined Mom Show

Sep 21, 2023

Are you at a point in your business where you desire financial stability? This episode is for you. 

In this episode of The Determined Mom Show, I have the pleasure of hosting Krista McLellan. We delve into the challenges she faced after the death of her husband and how she turned things around to create financial stability for herself and her family. It was a tough journey, but through determination and the right strategies, she overcame obstacles and built a thriving business.

Here are 3 key takeaways from our conversation that I'd like to share with you:

1️⃣ Track your deductions meticulously: To become audit-proof and maximize tax deductions, keeping careful track of your expenses is crucial. Every number on your balance sheet should have supporting documents to support your claimed expenses. Remember, credit card expenses also require proof to be claimed as business expenses. Get organized and stay on top of your financial records!

2️⃣ Master your cash flow: Cash flow management is paramount for business success. By strategically tracking your inflows and outflows of money, you can make better decisions when timing payments, negotiating terms with vendors, and even reducing your taxable income. Timing is everything, so plan smart to keep more money in your bank account!

3️⃣ Empower yourself with financial knowledge: Don't let guilt or shame hold you back from seeking financial education and taking control of your finances. Understanding your numbers is empowering, whether you're running your own business, supporting your spouse's business, or exploring a part-time side hustle. Learn about cash flow, profit-making strategies, and tax optimization to build financial stability and thrive in your entrepreneurial journey.

If you want to dive deeper into these topics and gain additional insights, tune in to The Determined Mom Show episode 256. You'll find plenty of actionable steps and inspiration to create financial stability in your business.
