Cash Flow: The Lifeblood of Your Business

The main reason businesses fail is poor cash management. You might be profitable... have lots receivables... and still be broke if you can’t manage cash and understand how cash moves in and out of your business. But we have good news! It’s no harder to understand than your checking account statement and no accounting degree is required! This class starts at ground zero and goes through the simple steps to understanding cash management and projections with a basic spreadsheet model, all in PLAIN ENGLISH.
