Cashflow and Compounding

Using a financial statement to set goals

If you are currently cashflow negative

1. If you are currently cashflow negative (that is, you have more money going out than coming in):

  • make a list of all expense items and see if there are items that you don’t really need 
  • set a goal to increase your income by gaining another job, a higher paying job, or by setting some specific goals to your business if you are a business owner
  • participate in activities you enjoy which don’t cost much money. This could include walking along a beach, reading a book, or even writing one
  • discuss your current situation with your family and your team and ask for ideas.
