  3. Great way to focus and stay behind the torch...
  4. Helps to keep track and estimate the amount of material needed to produce a larger order...

Do you keep a journal or sketch book?   If not get one if you do it's great to use one as a journal for your work. Journal the formula  for creating your production. Whether you're creating pendants or functional work.

Episode 43- Best Of w/ Steve Sizelove originally aired as episode 21.  I wanted to revisit this episode because of the amount of value Steve has to offer. This chat was so rewarding on many levels and if you haven't gotten caught up on all the shows here's a good one for you. 

Another main factor in why I resisted this episode is due to my lack of energy this past week. I've been finding more and more that when I grind to hard and don't give myself adequate sleep and eat right it takes several weeks to recover. I don't know if it's my ADHD or just a symptomatic issue occurring from the grind. Either way it's one to find balance in my schedule and learn when it's time to turn the torch off and go home. Get my 7-8 hours of sleep and allow my body,mind and soul a chance to recover. So I hit the reset button and instead of giving you a half ass show I'm replaying my chat with the one and only Steve Sizelove 

You can find Steve on Instagram @steve_sizelove or kik stevesizelove

Episode 42- P&L (profit and loss) 

Today I wanted to give you some
More actionable content that you can immediately implement into you business. This habit is crucial to creating and maintaining an organized successful business.  Without seeing where you money is coming from and going to it is virtually impossible to be successful. I cover a very generalized way that I keep track of my numbers which helps simplify the business and keep my numbers in check 

By keeping tracking of your revenue you are able to forecast your budgets so you can prepare and plan for slow times of the year or even better yet find ways to increase the revenue stream for that time period.  

Here's a fool proof way of keep track!!!!

Get a yellow pad and at the top of the sheet wrote down the Month (I recommend doing this weekly) 

Make 3-columns and at the top of each column wrote down its category. First column Income, second expenses ,and third totals. 

In the income column right down all your revenue(if some days have multiple sales just do a total for that day). Write down date and total of transaction and at the bottom add it up and write down the total. 

In the expense column write down all your expenses. Make sure you categorize them according to the expense. If it was a purchase for cost of goods (rent, material, gases, electrical, etc) put a "M" next to the number.  If the expense was an Office Supply ( copy paper, shipping supplies, shipping costs , etc) put an "O" next to that expense. 
In a separate box under these columns  make a box for mileage. Keep track of mileage when making deliveries to and from. Keep a small ledger in your glove box to make it more convienent and make it a habit!!!!!!! 

At the bottom add up the totals for "O" and "M" and keep them separate  but under the totals add them up for a grand total. 

So if your income was $5,000 and your total expense was $2,500. You Net profit is $2,500. (This is the number you use to gauge your taxes ).  Most tax professionals recommend , depending on tax bracket , that you out away 15-25% of profit for taxes which will go towards your quarterly estimate. 


Hope this helps!!
