If your head has been totally in the sand around your business finances Laura has a few simple steps for you to start having better control and more confidence.
- Talk about it – book a 30 min chat with Laura or another money mentor, find a friend you can open up to (though be careful about what advice you take), or come and share your challenges in safe online communities like The Artful business Community or The Ladyboss Project Facebook group.
- Take an honest look at what your business is spending on a monthly basis. Bring no judgement to the process, simply go through everything and write it all down so you can be clear on what you need just to break even.
