Keep solid records, track everything that comes in and out of your company. To figure out your growth as a person, as a company, since you are running your life like a business, you will see progress. Watching your numbers change helps motivate you. Even when numbers are down it shows you that you must push on and try harder. When those same numbers are up, it can motivate you to be sure of your direction. Giving you new energy because of your great work effort. That is why a company keeps quarterly records. To establish direction while following its growth or decline.
Why do I say run your life like a business? If you worked for a company, as a “store manager”, and that store was losing money and over spending, you would get fired. If you have no company, no brand, no anything, then you are just considered a person living life. Okay, with that said, how does this help you? Well, if you are losing money and over spending, but didn’t get fired from your life, because you are your own boss, you would find yourself stuck in poverty, or lost in a pit of having no cash. Run your life like a business and stay in the black with your finances.
Keeping track of your growth also gives you awareness of what is going on. The more aware you are of your business, life, the more control you have over it. What is your budget, your goals, your money in, your money out, who is aware of you, who is not aware of you? These are all very important questions that asking yourself would greatly improve your life. I say this not as a person advising a company or entertainer to better themselves, but for a person to live wisely. To live to their full potential in a secure manor. You want security in your life, be aware of your growth.
