1. Stay Professional: Open a Business Bank Account

First things first: separate your business funds from your personal finances. Then, deposit your business finances into a business bank account. Not only does this simplify keeping track of business income and expenses, but it also helps with maintaining an accurate audit trail, looking legitimate to clients, and keeping things professional.

4. Stay Ready: Setup Automatic Fixed Payments

Now, let’s talk automation. Set up automatic payments for your bills and client invoices. Why? It saves you time, helps avoid those pesky late fees, and keeps your cash flow consistent. You’ll thank yourself later for this one.

5. Stay Alert: Monitor Your Accounts Regularly

Last but not least, watch your business accounts and finances like a hawk. Regularly peeking at your transaction history and setting up alerts helps you stay on top of things, detect potentially fraudulent activity, and protect your hard-earned money.
