4 additional considerations for business owners:
1. Excessive concentration
Many entrepreneurs take as little income as possible, and funnel as much money as they can back into their business. If you are
predominantly invested in your business, your portfolio is concentrated. You should consider diversifying to manage and reduce risk.
2. Managing lumpy cashflows
Businesses may not have stable and regular cashflows, forcing you to account for lean periods by holding excess liquidity. As you may not be able to contribute to a savings plan regularly, revisiting your financial goals regularly is important.
3. Future of the business
It’s critical to plan for what happens to your business after you leave, both from an ownership perspective as well as the running of the company. Having a detailed succession plan is important to ensure a smooth transition.
4. Key-person risk
Many privately owned companies depend on the founder. Ensuring that your business can continue to operate if you are unexpectedly unable to contribute is an important risk-mitigant to have in place.
