In Chapter 1: Understanding Cash Flow – Your Number One Priority
you get a brief overview of the “whys” behind business cash flow problems. It’s really very simple and describes those things you must understand and what you must look at to begin correcting your cash flow issues — now.
Chapter 2: Your Business Partner – The Accountant
delves into selecting an accountant for your business. I was surprised when about half of the small business owners who took my small business survey said they had no accountant. An accountant as the financial expert and partner for a business owner is worth their weight in gold. They can help you take the right actions to grow your business and prevent you from making missteps along the way. But it’s important to take the time to choose correctly.
I give you a roadmap for making just the right choice.
Once you’ve got the right partner on your team, you need to know a little about what they’ll be sharing with you and how to use financial reports to understand what happens to the money in your business.
In Chapter 3: How Money Works In Your Business
You’ll learn about the most important financial statements and key accounting terms that are critical for your business.
In Chapter 4: Finding and Keeping Cash In Your Business
I tell you all the nooks and crannies you can explore to see if you’re missing something. When you’ve found all the cash you can inside your business and are still on the short end of the cash flow stick, looking outside is your best option. You’ll learn about different types of financing available.
Having a Cash Flow Budget will be a critical key to your success as you move forward. It will help you decide what projects to take on, when you need to slow down cash outflows and make adjustments to the way you do business.
