As you may know, cash flow statements are used regularly in business to better manage the flow of cash coming in from sales revenue, and cash going out for various expenditures.
So why don't we do the same
thing when managing our personal finances?
How often have you been
surprised to learn that a bill is due before you get paid? This happens all the
time, even for people who live per a monthly budget.
Unforeseen medical bills are a
perfect example of unplanned bills. Other unexpected costs occur from a car
breaking down, weather damage to a home, a child accidentally throws a ball
into a neighbor’s window, the dog chews up your best friend’s shoe - the list
goes on and on.
"If I had to run a company on three measures, those measures would be customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction and cash flow."
- Jack Welch

Using our daily cash flow tool,

In case you are wondering…

As you begin to direct your money with a clearer purpose - not just once a month, but every single day - you'll begin to feel greater confidence in leading your financial life. It’s important that you continue to calculate your cash flow regularly throughout the debt reduction process.
A common benefit of daily cash flow management is that you’ll start spending less money overall. Why? Because now you’re tuned into the bigger financial picture; you’re no longer spending mindlessly.
