Question :  "Is it ok to include personal finances with the business?"
Answer : You should always keep your personal finances separate from your business. When you start your own business, you are usually responsible for pretty much everything, which includes bookkeeping. To make life easier for yourself, a fundamental tactic to avoid a lot of confusion in the long run is to set up a separate bank account for your company. Doing this will save you a great deal of time and energy when accounting for your expenses.
