Living without cash is super convenient. Specially for small enterprises. No more “petty cash” bags, employee compensation checks, or hurried bank runs to make a bill payment. Everything happens with credit cards, online bank accounts, PayPal, Square, and Shopify.

But not having one central bank account makes financial planning even squishier— we don’t really know where our money is going anymore. Payments on bills are automatic. Money flows while we sleep into our account.

In the context, it is all just kind of happening. If we’re not completely sure if we have enough money to cover an expense, we know it’s still going to get paid by credit (debt is another day’s problem).

The net result: we are no longer positive about our financial affairs.

Can we be investing in a new line of products? Hard to tell.

Do we really need a loan or can we cut spending just a little bit? Don’t even ask.

Master Your Finances

David Allen has arguably written the ultimate productivity book, entitled “Getting Things Done.” In it, he calls for a “bottom-up” approach to your life.

That is, if you can find out how to manage the little things that come to you on a daily basis (email, to-dos, appointments, bills), then you will have the mental space and focus to think about your job and your life (what is my vision? What is my contribution to humanity?).

This is the approach we take with small business finances at Nuage Digital. You can’t control your money until you’ve mastered spending day to day.

You need to be able to respond confidently to the following questions in order to master day-to-day spending: Where am I over-spending?

How much cash do I bring in (and go out) every week?

What are my complete responsibilities to spend right now?

Do I have ample cash to cover the expenses?
