Here's how to start getting control of your variable income
FIRST: GET SOME IDEAS
Variable income is hard. It is not impossible.
Read this piece on the system that I use that has changed the way I feel about variable income.
SECOND: DO THIS WORKSHEET
When you can’t really pin down how much income you’re making every month… you need to really understand your expenses.
Here’s a worksheet to that will help you figure out which expenses you know… and which ones you’re really not sure of.
THIRD: GET TO KNOW YOUR EXPENSES BETTER
I’m telling you…. the secret to variable income control… is in really understanding the day to day ins and outs of your money.
If that worksheet really left you with a feeling of ‘I have no idea what I spend on things’… I really recommend this course.
It’s a ten day free email guide that will help you start getting connected to your money. Use those tools for a few months, and you’ll have the building blocks for variable income mastery.
FOURTH: LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE
One of the big traps with variable income is to look at it month by month. Sometimes that’s not how your income works…
Here’s a spreadsheet you should play around with… it allows you to look at your variable income AND variable expenses over the course of a year!
I’ve found it really useful for planning out my income.
This guide should not be construed as official financial advice, but merely as information. Without speaking to you, or taking a look at your specific numbers I can’t know for sure what the best next step for you is.
