Increasing Cash Flow
Increasing cash flow is the first step to a Solid Financial Foundation.
Cash flow is one of the most powerful concepts in personal finance. Sadly, not too many people are truly familiar with cash flow and how essential it is to one’s finances. Once you know the concept of cash flow and know how to improve it, this will give you tremendous flexibility and open lots of opportunities.
What is cash flow?
Investopedia’s definition is…
A revenue or expense stream that changes a cash account over a given period. Cash inflows usually arise from one of three activities – financing, operations or investing – although this also occurs as a result of donations or gifts in the case of personal finance. Cash outflows result from expenses or investments. This holds true for both business and personal finance.
Cash flow is basically your earnings minus your expenses. Knowing the two basic components of cash flow will give you an idea to where you stand financially. You know you have a poverty mindset, if your expenses are equivalent to or worse more than your income. With the materialistic world that we have today, it is no wonder that a lot of people are trapped in debt. However, if our expenses is far less than what you earn then you are on your way to FINANCIAL SECURITY.
The question now is HOW?
How do we improve/ increase our personal cash flow?
Increase Your Income
A: Earn more from your job
You can work overtime, get a promotion or ask for a raise.
1. Earn more outside of your job
2. Be an entrepreneur… open up a business.
Tips to starting a business
A. Find your Passion- Do what you love
B. Have a business plan – write it and seek professional help (hire a business developer expert or take a class) and do research or feasibility study
C. Start while you are employed- Income earned from employment could help augment initial operating expenses.
D. GET clients & customer first
Reduce Your Expenses
The best and easiest way to improve your cash flow is by cutting your expenses; especially ones that are recurring month-to-month.
START a BUDGET
In general, expense reduction is easier if you are keeping a budget.
Start tracking your expenses – do a journal
The key to success in expense reduction is doing all the little things that add up and trying to take one small step at a time.
Don’t try to reduce your expenses by 50% — it will never happen. You can challenge yourself to cut 1000 pesos month or a 2000 pesos a month. Once you achieve that, go for another 1000, and so forth.
To help you get started, here are some ideas on how to save money — actually, about a thousand ideas.
Overall, the best way to increase your personal cash flow is to be conscious of how much money you spend and why. Think about what you’re doing as a consumer, instead of simply reacting to impulses. You’ll see results immediately, as soon as you get serious about it. And don’t forget to establish an emergency savings fund and contribute to it regularly.
