Cash flow hiccups happen to all of us. And it can happen for any reason. Perhaps your business is seasonal, a client flaked out on you, or maybe you need suddenly need something for your business and you need to find the cash to get it. Then, the panic sets in…. what will you do? How will you fulfill YOUR commitments?
The choice of whether to be “safe” or to go after opportunity and what we truly desire is one that we must make throughout our lives.
And if we’re choosing to go for what we want, we are leaving safety behind, accepting risk and going against what most people think is practical.
When I look back on my journey to what got me here…..it’s always the risk that propelled me forward, and safety that held me back.
Is there something you want to be, do, or have and making it happen, bringing it into your life requires action that feels a bit risky or scary because the outcome isn’t assured?
- You want to leave the corporate world to start your own gig. But you don’t have enough clients to replace your income yet?

- You’re tired of playing small. You’re ready to step into a higher version of yourself and your business and want to quantum leap your income. You know you need to up-level the mentors you work with but the investment is as much if not more than you’re currently earning?
- Or perhaps it’s not something so dramatic yet still important – like you want to attract more or new or different clients, but you’re still not sure of your programs and offerings and don’t feel ready to make sales calls.

Should you ever use personal or family money to fund your business?

While I do have an amazing team that takes care of a lot of my tasks – there was a time when I was a business of “ONE” and I had to do things myself.
I recently interviewed my good friend Sue Ferreira for Living Forward TV.
Sue made the transition from anaesthesiologist to entrepreneur in her 60’s! Yes, you read that right. After a very successful career as an esteemed physician, Sue decided it was time to do something different and serve others in a new way.
When a client owes you money and won’t pay, not only is it an upsetting experience, it can bring bad energy to the business. But, if it’s a big account, it also has the potential to affect your ability to pay your own bills and team.
In business there’s never a lack of opportunity to talk about money, and for some reason it’s always awkward, whether it’s asking for the sale, someone wanting a refund or a discount, or to hold their payment, or maybe it’s a team member negotiating their pay, or YOU’RE talking pricing with one of your vendors.
The way you show up in these conversations is KEY to having them be light, easy and graceful.
