As we continue to face these unprecedented times with the spread of COVID-19, it’s natural to feel sad, worried, and anxious about what each new day will bring and what your future will hold once the pandemic is over. Whether you’re a student with seminars or classes suddenly cancelled, or a business owner who has been told to close your doors for the foreseeable future, these are uncertain times for everyone. And while we know this won’t last forever, the initial shock of our short-term reality is starting to wear off and we’re beginning to settle into our ‘new norm.’ Everyone’s financial situations are different, so it is vital to take stock of where you are and make adjustments where needed to remain financially fit.
Today, I share how to evaluate your financial situation and plan for cash control. I share the steps you need to take to evaluate your current financial situation and how to use your numbers to calculate your cash surplus or deficit. I reveal the ways that you can increase the inflow of your finances and the options that may be available to reduce your outflows, such as deferrals, cancellations, and interest rate reductions. I also share where you can find and apply for financial assistance packages from the government.
