Mastering Cash Flow and Abundance in Your Small BusinessNov 13, 2023
Running a small business or being self-employed can often feel like a rollercoaster ride of cash flow ups and downs. In such a volatile landscape, it's easy to succumb to the scarcity mindset, constantly seeking to accumulate and hoard resources for the sake of security. But is this the right approach? Are you chasing money merely to stockpile it for an uncertain future? These questions lead us into the realm of illusions, where we believe that we can safeguard ourselves from an empty bank account without ever seeking external help. Let's delve deeper into this and explore a more holistic approach to managing your finances.
Money as Energy
Your money is not just currency; it's energy. And like energy, money flows. You can't hoard it, and it doesn't respond well to being treated as a static, lifeless resource. Instead of getting caught up in the fear of scarcity, it's time to recognize that both money and energy are in a constant state of flux. To truly understand and harness their potential, we must learn to navigate the valleys as well as the peaks.
One key principle to achieving financial stability is embracing generosity. Whether your bank account is flourishing or dwindling, the ability to give generously is a powerful mindset shift. When you give, you create a positive energy exchange that can manifest in various forms, including financial abundance. Be it a small act of kindness or a significant donation, your generosity can be a source of both personal fulfillment and financial reward. I have always chosen my time and skills as my gift, prioritising teaching movement as dance and yoga for charity is not generous but fills my heart with deep delight and gratitude for all that I have. Even when I was too unwell to teach, I volunteered to ‘socialise’ cats for charity as I valued my available time to give. You can find your way to be generous that works with your stages of life and capacity.
Effective Cash Flow Strategies
To navigate the ebb and flow of cash, you need effective strategies:
(i) Building a Savings Buffer: Start by saving a percentage of your income, even if it's just 10% of a dollar. Create a separate savings account dedicated to this purpose. Watch it grow over time and use it as a buffer during lean months. When money is abundant, save more. Allocate portions for different purposes, such as holidays, emergencies, or those days when you can't work due to illness.
(ii) Seeking Help When Needed: When cash flow hits rock bottom, don't hesitate to ask for help. It's a sign of strength, not weakness, to acknowledge your challenges and reach out for support. Be open to the resources available to you, and graciously accept any assistance offered. Avoid arrogance and the trap of refusing help because it doesn't meet your specific expectations. To learn this graciousness welcomes the grace of abundant gifts.
Attracting Clients with Abundance
Worrying about where your next client will come from can project an unattractive aura of fear and scarcity. Instead, focus on feeling resourced and abundant. Stay present and concentrate on the areas of your life where you have an abundance to share with potential clients. Cultivate a sense of "presence" rather than resorting to desperate actions. When you're truly present, you become magnetic and open to genuine connections.
Embracing Cycles of Abundance
Remember, abundance and scarcity are part of a natural cycle. These are the rhythms of life and it is false to believe that clients and money should flow like electrical lights constantly glimmering in the darkness. Even when your client calendar seems empty, you can still maintain an abundance mindset. Stay connected to the flow of energy that sustains and supports you. Take time to reflect on natural cycles and rhythms, observe how these happen in your own business. Are there repeated quieter months or weeks each year? To acknowledge and understand this continuous flow will eventually lead to a healthy exchange of cash flow and clients.
Marketing from a Place of Joy
If you find yourself with spare time, invest it wisely in marketing your business. But don't approach it as a chore. Instead, focus on what genuinely inspires you (check out last month’s blog and YouTube video). Clearly communicate the features and benefits of your offerings. Get into a state of relaxation, become present, and act only when inspired. Nourish yourself by reflecting on what it feels like to be with your clients and how you enjoy supporting them. This practice can be a wellspring of gratitude for attracting abundance.
