How do you manage your professional skin care income? Do decisions about when to pay yourself, reinvest in your business and contribute to your savings account make you sweat and grab for a carton of Ben & Jerry’s? The reality is you should be doing all three, even if you are just starting out. Following are three tips on how to remove the financial fear from your skin care business.

1. Pay yourself: No ifs, ands or buts about it. A big part of achieving financial freedom is redirecting your income—and that includes paying yourself. Overcome the fear that more money might not come your way and, instead, take strides toward keeping a portion of your earnings for yourself. Try incorporating these steps.

  • Give yourself permission to accept a paycheck instead of worrying about unforeseen obstacles.
  • Open a separate business bank account, and really step into becoming a professional businessperson.
  • Pay yourself at regular intervals, such as the first and fifteenth of the month, and stand by your plan.

Just starting out? Make a commitment to pay yourself a small percentage, even if it’s only enough for a latte. Establishing a routine is the important part. As your business grows, so will your paycheck. The goal is to create balance and flow in your business. Taking home a paycheck rewards your hard work and keeps you from dipping into your earnings sporadically. Paying yourself is also a great way to acknowledge your hard work, which can only lead to more abundance and success.
