Thinking about the money but not necessarily losing focus. Just a brief diversion whilst the thought arose. The self-starting entrepreneur, a one-man band, if ever there was one, was just moments ago thinking on the money. The thought arose during a necessary break away from his desk. A brief spurt of warm sunshine brought comfort and ease to the mind as it engaged in a little critical thinking. It was a short-term exercise.
Thinking just ahead for the next seven days. What income would be available to the small business practitioner at the start of the week. And after not entirely necessary withdrawals are made, what is the balance in the small biz account. And then a quick objective setting exercise in terms of setting a new income target for the end of the current week. Only one longer objective was set for the month-end.
This had to do with the independent earner’s most important expenses for the month. A confident shrug of reassurance in the sense that all targets going forward should and can be met. Keeping the mind busy at all times, but without the stress and anxiety, this is what it is like to be thinking on your feet, figuratively speaking. Longer term objectives, perhaps for what remains of the year needs to take into account capital expenditure.
One such expense that is being factored onto the provisional balance sheet is that of business it solutions. And once a brief but free consultation with the IT engineer is completed, the expense, perhaps scaled down for affordability purposes, is made permanent on that balance sheet. In this day and age, no professional startup engineer worth his pound of salt can go without the services of a professional business IT consultant.
