How can I save for a vacation? It’s a question that resonates with every hardworking business owner. The temptation of a break from the daily grind is undeniable, yet often, two barriers stand in the way —busyness and budget constraints. At Incite Tax, we recognize these challenges, and in response, we’ll delve into how the Profit First System can help you on your way to your dream destination.


Profit First

Profit First is the game-changing cash flow management system that’s reshaping the way businesses approach their finances. (By the way, if you want a FREE Cash Flow Analysis, click here.) This innovative methodology places profits at the forefront, thereby revolutionizing fund allocation and prioritizing financial stability. What sets Profit First apart is its recommendation to set up multiple bank accounts, each serving a specific purpose.

Profit First suggests that each business has five fundamental accounts: income, owner’s pay, profit distributions, taxes, and operating expenses. However, here at Incite Tax, we’re firm believers in the principle “When in doubt, add an account.” This adaptability allows us to tailor the system to our unique needs, a practice that ensures the utmost effectiveness.


A Simple Strategy

The path to your well-deserved vacation starts with a simple yet transformative step: the creation of a dedicated vacation account. By consistently allocating a small percentage or fixed amount during your regular fund transfers, you’re quietly building a fund with a singular purpose of getting you out to see the world or do anything else you’ve been longing for.

What’s remarkable about this approach is its subtlety. The incremental contributions to your vacation account won’t disrupt your business operations or cash flow. Over time, though, this unassuming amount grows into a sum big enough to make your vacation dreams closer to reality than ever before.


Beyond Vacations

Taking vacations is only the beginning of your journey with Profit First. This system empowers you to manage your finances holistically, creating a stable foundation for your business’s growth. One pivotal step in this journey is conducting a cash flow analysis, an essential part of Profit First’s seven-step process.
