Cash Flow Management
Cash is king – especially when it comes to small businesses, which rarely have the credit line or bailout investors lined up to help them when times are rough. Implementing a good cash flow management process means that you’re able to track how much cash is moving in and out of the business. Cash flow management process is as simple as watching your bank account balance, or as complicated as figuring out a 12-month sales projection, but a process needs to to be in place.
Why? The reason is simple: At some point, every business is close to the red line. You need a good understanding of the cash flow situation to make decisions about investments and committments to partners, suppliers, and customers.
