On this post, I thought I would do something a little bit different than what I normally do – and that is to actually take you behind the scenes and show you what my money meetings look like. I conduct my money meetings twice a month, generally 5 days after the end of the month and 5 days after the middle of the month. I adjust those days depending on when the 15th and when the end of the month actually falls since I prefer to do my money meetings on a Thursday.
But of course, if you’re looking to start doing money meetings for your business, you can come up with a schedule that works best for you, too. The point, really, is just to pick a time that works best for you. The reason why I want to do them twice a month is that for me, that feels like I’m checking in enough but not too much. I especially like doing them right after the middle of the month so that I have plenty of time to make any adjustments for the remaining part of the month. And of course, having a money meeting after the end of the month helps me to see how the past month went so that I can make adjustments for the new month.
