Creating Your Financial Map

A profit plan is a road map that allows you to track income and expenses over time to reach your desired financial goals. It shows you how much money is needed for expenses, where it will be spent, and how much you can afford to pay.

You should plan before you start your business so that you can track your profit targets. Once you start your business, you can compare your financial performance to your goals. Your financial plan should identify your revenue and your expenses. For accuracy, gather all your invoices, settlement statements, bills, and receipts. Don’t forget to budget for savings, estimated taxes, and emergency expenses.

Starting your own business is a lot of work, but you’re not alone.
