How I Organize My Finances As a Freelancer

How I Organize My Finances As a Freelancer

As any freelancer or small business owner will tell you, managing your finances is a huge part of the job. From the ebbs and flows of self employment income to keeping track of all your deductible expenses to paying quarterly estimated taxes, managing your personal and business finances is no small feat. But, having a clear, organized system for keeping track of everything is a great place to start.

We've found sorting our money into different places helps us manage multiple income streams and work toward our savings goals. It's also makes paying quarterly taxes much easier. 

Here's how SD and I organize our finances as freelancers, teachers, and small business owners:

2015 Book List

2015 Book List

"She reads books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live." - Annie Dillard

I haven't always been a reader, but for the past few years, I've tried to be more intentional about reading for pleasure, fulfillment, inspiration, well-being, knowledge, and rest. I've read books about love and faith; balance, leadership, and goal-setting; living, giving, and relationships. Each one has taught me something new about myself, my priorities, and the person I want to become.

This year, I hope to read at least six new books, chosen from the list below. Are any of these on your list? Are there any books you'd recommend as must-reads? Follow along with my reading adventures at #ashleydanyewreads!
