On Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, here are 10 financial tips for aspiring women entrepreneurs.


Strategise

The first step to solid financial planning for an entrepreneur is to pen down the goals that she would want to achieve. The next step would be to plan a strategy to achieve these goals. Strategising would help in saving capital.

Develop a budget

A woman entrepreneur should keep a set budget by estimating the expenses.  She can keep an amount aside every month for saving and investments with the help of a budget.

Invest wisely

As an entrepreneur, it is important that a woman invests wisely and not pull out of an investment hastily. If an entrepreneur is unsure of an investment, it is better to learn more about it and about the options available.

Plan for future

An entrepreneur should analyse the past months or quarters and find out what was done right and what went wrong. Accordingly, the entrepreneur should plan for the future.

Invest in insurance

Those setting up a business have a lot on their plate. Investing in life and health insurance can give a sense of security and comfort to the entrepreneur.

Build an emergency fund

An entrepreneur should always have an emergency fund on which she can fall back when required. As one has to take risks in business, an emergency fund helps in providing some comfort in times of financial crisis.

Pay taxes

Maintaining discipline in paying Goods and Services Tax helps entrepreneurs avoid unnecessary losses and gain concessions. Being responsible about taxes rewards the entrepreneurs as they would not lose money in penalties.

Avoid debt

Carrying debt means making huge payouts as interest expenses. Hence, it is advisable to eliminate personal or business debt, if any. This would help to retain the cash flow in the business and avoid bankruptcy issues.

Have a backup plan

While taking risks in business and investments, an entrepreneur should always have a backup plan in place for times when things don’t go according to plan.

Separate personal and business finances

An entrepreneur should keep her personal finances completely independent from her business finances. This will help in keeping personal liabilities low and make the business a more credible organisation.
