I’m very clear that the way I pay myself each month would not be endorsed by your bookkeeper or accountant. It’s just unorthodox (I’ll say more about this later). But then again, the way most solopreneurs pay themselves is by seeing what is leftover after paying all of their expenses. What happens if there is nothing leftover?
Stress. Defeat. Struggle. Lack.
I’ll confess. I used to accept the breadcrumbs, too. I thought that everyone else should get the money before I did if I were being a responsible business owner. Now I know better. Paying yourself last is just a practice (sometimes hard to break) that will never grow your business.
