Most people are familiar with the definition of cash flow, especially the people who struggle to manage private financial activities aiming for one goal, financial freedom.

Cash flow is a measurement of the amount of cash that comes into and out of your pocket in a particular period. Cash flow is not only for a company but also for individuals in their daily live costs.

Fundamentally, there is no difference between company cash flow and individual cash flow. With cash flow, you can control and evaluate the flow of personal expenses.


Positive Cash Flow or Negative Cash Flow

Robert T Kiyosaki in his book ‘Cash Flow Quadrant’ divided cash flow into four quadrants, depending on what kind of income you get. The four quadrants are E(Employee), S(Self-Employee Business), B(Big Business), and I(Investor). If you are an employee of a company, the income you will get are depending on the monthly salary, bonuses, and allowances. A negative cash flow is all of the mandatory and unavoidable outgoings such as tax, electricity bills, internet, transport, meal, or additional expenses such as entertainment and self-reward.
