Why You Need to Review Your Cashflow Statement

Cash flowing through your business is like blood flowing through your body. Quite simply, without it you die! 

We have all heard the stories and probably observed first hand the business(es) that had booming sales and a seemingly bright future but somehow still managed to fail. While we understand there are many reasons for these failures a common thread linking most business failures is Cashflow. Well, actually I would say the common thread is inattention to Cashflow to be more precise.

In the second article in our Business Matters series we show a simple example of how this is easy to do and even easier to avoid. It is simply unforgiveable that business owners do not report on their cash on a regular and timely basis. There is absolutely no reason why every business owner should not be reviewing their Cashflow Statement (and projections) every month.
