MONEY IS THE BACKBONE of any given society and business.  Without it, people can’t survive and business cannot operate.  Money, as they say, makes the world go round and that’s why it is prudent to know how to manage it well and effectively.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand how to manage expenses. All it takes is a little monitoring and evaluation to find out where cash goes.  It is relatively easy to find and track expenses; take, for example, the trips you take to the coffee machine during a day.  Or more applicable to business, do you have three people on staff doing a job that could be accomplished by one or two?  If that can be cut back, you can use that money elsewhere.

There are countless ways that the money from losing one or two staff members can be used. Find a more efficient way to accomplish their tasks or hire someone trained in something you’d like to grow your company into. If you have a small company and losing one or two employees would cause a significant emotional event, then retrain them to do something else. Just ensure that you’re maximizing their potential and your employee efficiency. This is just one idea. If you own your own building, consider paying to have skylights put in so you don’t have to have your lights turned on in the day time.

Another way of managing your expenses is by curbing the urge to spend cash on inconsequentials.  This is usually for those people who want to brag about their new status and now want to be seen as having achieved more.  Most professional money managers believe that if you curbs the urge to spend on things that will not add value to your business, you can use the money for other better and useful stuff.

Another way that you can manage expenses like a professional is by building healthy habits.  This is done by cultivating or instilling the mantra or habit of only spending cash on items or products that add value with time.  This could be investments, real estate, or any other venture that would help the business later.  Many companies have bank bonds that accrue money or have shares in other companies that they feel are going to be successful in the next two or three years.

It is good to have a knowledge of how money can work for you and, more importantly, not against you.  This is because if one is carried by the money alone, then the money can become something dangerous.  Professionals also believe that it is the person’s perspective to money that makes money either work for or against you.

By managing your business’ expenses, you are able to put the rest into good use and in the end by either growing the business or investing it in shares or bonds that will accumulate a lot of money in the future.
