Personal budget for survival
Once an athlete has completed his or her sports career and wants to find out if he or she can afford to start his or her own business (and if the company can cover its own costs), he or she must calculate his or her survival budget. This is the amount a future entrepreneur needs to cover his personal expenses, not counting the inflow of money from sources other than his company over the next 12 months. The net result represents the amount he/she will have to earn from the job. He/she should do the household calculations first.
It is important that future entrepreneurs:
• Be honest with yourself, and don`t underestimate costs
• To include in the calculation "luxury" costs (outings, travel, restaurants)
Initial costs - start up costsClick to read
Start-up costs represent the amount that future entrepreneurs need to prepare before starting a business. Start-up costs may include necessary assets, equipment, tools and Start-up costs can be divided into: fixed and variable costs
Fixed costs: costs that the future entrepreneur has and do not depend on the products produced or services provided
Variable costs: costs directly related to the business
The most important question that a future entrepreneur must ask himself is:
How much money do I have to invest to start my own business?
Introduction to basic financial concepts - Revenue / Expenses, Receipt / Outlay, Profit / Loss / Financial resultClick to read
The financial plan is a plan of business spending based on revenues and expenses for a certain period (month, quarter, year). Identifies available capital, estimates consumption, and helps predict revenue. It is an aid in planning business activities and serves to set financial goals. The components of the financial plan are: Estimated revenue, Fixed cost, Variable cost, One-time cost, Cash flow, Planned financial result.
When starting a new business, making your first financial plan could be a challenge, but it’s a good learning experience and a good way to understand your business. Here are the basic components of such a plan.
1. Estimated revenue
This is the money you expect your business to make from selling goods and services. There are two main components to estimated revenue: the sales forecast and the estimated cost of goods sold or services provided. It is important to remain realistic to avoid overestimating revenue.
2. Fixed cost
When your company regularly pays the same amount for a certain cost, it is a fixed cost. Some examples of fixed costs are building rent, utility fees, employee salaries, online services, accounting services and insurance premiums. Including these costs in the financial plan is important so that you can set aside the exact amount of money needed to cover them.
3. Variable costs
These are the costs of goods or services that can vary depending on your business success. For example, suppose you have a product on the market that is becoming more and more popular. The next thing you would like to do is produce more of that product. The cost of raw materials needed for production, the distribution channels used to supply the product, and the workforce in production will change as you increase production, so they will all be considered variable costs.
4. One-time costs
These are one-time, unexpected costs that your business could incur in any year. Because these costs are difficult to predict, there is no specific way to estimate them. But it is wise to set aside some money for this category to be prepared.
5. Cash flow
Systematized presentation of receipts and outlays of money in a certain period of time. Receipt means the inflow of money from goods sold or services rendered that arises at the time of receipt of money in the giro account. Outlays means the outflow of money from purchased goods or ordered services that occurs at the time of outflow of money from the giro account.
6. Planned financial result
The last component of the financial plan is the figure you get by subtracting the estimated costs from revenues.

It is certainly important to include in the financial plan a systematic presentation of cash receipts and outlays, ie cash flow. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the difference between revenue and receipts and expenditures and expenses.
What is the difference between revenue and receipt? Revenue is the value of goods sold or services rendered that arise when goods or services are sold. Receipt is the inflow of money from goods sold or services rendered that arises at the time the money is received on the giro account. So, the basic difference is the moment, and they don't have to happen at the same time.
What is the difference between expense and outlay? Expense is any expenditure related to the performance of an activity. Outlay is the outflow of money from purchased goods or ordered services that occurs at the time of outflow of money from the giro account. So, the basic difference is the moment, and they don't have to happen at the same time.

The loan is considered a long-term investment in the business, is repaid in monthly agreed repayment terms and is paid interest on the repayment period and the fee for processing the loan application.

This source of funding is not standardized and depends on the state, city, municipality.
