Financial mistakes you should avoid as a business owner

When you start and manage your business, it’s unavoidable that you will run into a few bumps along the way. Most of them you can overcome but what if it’s something much bigger and involves your bank statement?

Be money-wise and avoid getting yourself in a financial pinch by steering clear of these common mistakes some business owners make.

1. Not having a cash cushion
2. Having both personal and business accounts in one
3. Passive collection of receivables
4. Impulse spending and overspending on startup costs
5. Extending sales on credit without vetting the client
