LAST FRIDAY I PAID MYSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME. Honestly, I was so scared to run my numbers. Tracking invoices, figuring out how much and how often to pay myself, setting aside money for taxes, expenses. It was all so confusing, and more than anything daunting. But after I sat down, created a system and figured it all out, I felt so relieved. Right now I am just using an excel sheet but I planning on looking into a program and see what works best for me.
Key to relieving stress around it:
- on boarding clients that pay on a weekly retainer basis. “packages” they know what they are getting every week and so do I (this is how I was able to leave my day job!)
- Celebrating the little things, every single win , payment and project!
- Running the numbers, staying on top of it and only doing work that you are getting paid what you deserve for!
Thanks for following along on this crazy journey with me! Hope to talk to you soon! xx
