Ask any entrepreneur how things are going, and rarely will you hear a zen response like ” I have peace and balance in my life, and am fully fulfilled.” Rather, you’d likely hear one of the responses above.
In the tumult of daily business life we are often running… running to meetings, running to fight fires, running around planning, problem solving, strategizing.
We often forget that time needs to be carved out to stop…
Stop, and get your butt in a seat.
Do I have your attention?
I can see you picturing yourself in a seat, fidgeting– like there are so many other things you need to be doing other than sitting down. I know, we get it.
But we encourage you to sit, regularly–like monthly– and do a financial review.
While I like to think our clients get a lot of value out of our monthly financial reviews (and they do) I also wonder if it is the discipline of doing that monthly sit-down that is equally beneficial to them.
We get the butts in the seats..at least for a few, regularly scheduled hours a month.
When you put a monthly review on your calendar and stick to it you are carving out important time to make sure that all the running around you are doing is actually getting you somewhere. Each time you put your butt in the seat you learn more. You become more financially savvy… you become a better business person because your decisions are based on numbers rather than gut instinct.
I can go on and on about the benefits of regular monthly financial reviews, but I won’t. I’m going to leave it at this— there is no better time than the beginning of the year to start a new habit. So pick a day and mark it on your calendar each month when you will make a commitment to sit down and review your financials.
If you need help getting your butt in a seat monthly, just give us a call, we’ll be happy to help you!
