Knowing how to manage finances in a small business can be very similar to running your own household finances—but also very different. Understanding these distinctions is key to both personal wealth and business success. 

Let’s dive into the differences:

Personal finance management is all about budgeting, saving, investing, and planning for the future on an individual or family level. 

It involves:

  • Setting personal financial goals
  • Creating and sticking to a budget
  • Building an emergency fund
  • Planning for retirement
  • Managing personal debt

On the flip side, business finance focuses on strategies that help in the growth and sustainability of your business. 

This includes:

  • Keeping accurate and detailed financial records (AKA our amazing bookkeeping services 👀)
  • Understanding cash flow management
  • Separating personal and business finances
  • Planning and forecasting financial performance
  • Managing business investments and expenses wisely
