Entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs have no money to give: you need to build your company. This is why comprehensive financial planning is necessary and meaningful, from start-up support to insurance to financial investment.
Self-employed: Finances are often in the background
But that's exactly where the problem often lies: because all the energy goes to that Company aligned, there is hardly any time left for other things. Your own finances? At some point you will take care of it. Is not first on the to-do list. Do you recognize yourself?
My free guide “Financial tips for the self-employed” has now been published on the subject, which you can download free from Bookboon.
How successful entrepreneurs act
For the first year of your self-employment, it may not be so big a problem that financial planning remains on the line as long as the livelihood is secured. But after that it becomes critical. Many entrepreneurs get used to feeling their own finances as annoying and restrict this topic to the necessary tax declaration.
Successful entrepreneurs act differently. They take care of the company AND their finances. You not only know the operational expenses, but also the private ones. They know what the private emergency reserve is and how they will pay the next tax advance payment.
Cash flow generation, regardless of work
With this knowledge, they know their investment opportunities and use investment opportunities. Successful entrepreneurs do not put their entire assets into the company (at least after the start-up phase), but instead create risks by investing in other areas.
They generate a cash flow that is independent of their use. In this book, you will not only find an overview of the most important start-ups, but also tips for the right insurance and financial investment.

E-books are on the rise - as evidenced by the Danish e-book publisher Bookboon, which is portrayed here by the BBC. But how does the collaboration with Bookboon actually work and why as a reader can you download my texts for free?
For a long time, I had been looking for a simple and practical solution to make my texts available as e-books to my readers. Because e-books have the big advantage compared to the blog that you can read them offline on the mobile phone.
E-books cost time and money
The disadvantage, however, is that they are a lot of work: The texts do not just have to be put into a coherent text form, but also formatted and layouted.
This, in turn, causes great expense and expense. And in order to play it, I would have to offer the e-books again. This, in turn, would have created an even greater expenditure on technology:
Cost use Bill
For example, the installation of a secure online shop with a data protection lawful payment system and a download server. And at the latest the matter became critical. So no e-books for my readers?
A partner had to come here. And that was Bookboon. Bookboon.com is a subsidiary of Ventus Publishing, headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. Since its founding, 1988 has been the focus of Ventus Publishing's publication of educational books for students and business people.
Free download as an additional service
Since 2005, the company uses bookboon.com exclusively for free e-books. Readers need to provide a few dates for download. The whole thing is financed by a small advertisement in the book. As a result, I also earn a few euros as an author for compiling and writing the texts.
But I have no further effort with it and you as a reader can now download my texts for free. And not only mine: Bookboon.com is active worldwide and offers a selection of 1000 e-books that users can download directly from the website.
The business model
The publisher currently records 10 million downloads annually. Its current headquarters has bookboon.com in London with additional offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Munich.
