Running your business—small or large—is tough. What’s even tougher is spending money you pull in from jobs before considering how much you should be paying back to yourself or your firm. Did you forget about the money spent on postage for the self-promo postcards that won you the job in the first place? Or what about the $40 you or an employee spent on gas driving to and from to meet with said client?
This is why it’s important to know how much money you’re really making at the end of the day by smartly calculating your overhead. Marketing Mentor co-founder Ilise Benun offers this complimentary worksheet to help you take control of your finances.
- This Overhead Worksheet accompanies the article “By the Numbers,” by Ilise Benun, in the May 2010 issue of HOW. Benun shows that if you can keep tabs on your finances by tracking 5 business basics, you’ll end each month with more money in the bank.
