Some key takeaways on turning your business cash flow into net worth are:

  • Generating wealth using your business is a two-step process. Step 1: generate cash flow in your business. Step 2: invest that cash flow to build wealth. It might not be quite as easy as it sounds, but it really is that straightforward.

  • There are three stages of wealth building in your business: stabilize, protect, and invest. The goal is to work your way up to the “invest” phase, but you may bounce back and forth between these phases depending on the season you’re in your life and business.

  • How do you know if you have enough money to invest? If you are generating enough money to pay yourself consistently, you’ve set aside money for taxes, and you have a cash reserve built up in case of any “oh sh*t” moments, what’s left over is yours to invest.
