The importance of cash flow
Financial planning and control
The credit crunch highlighted to businesses the importance of cash management, as those firms which ran short of cash discovered when they found themselves in trouble or even went bust.This tightly-written guide clearly explains the six critical aspects of the effective management of cash and cash flow. These involve:
•forecasting likely cash receipts and payments
•establishing funding lines necessary to cover asset purchases or for working capital
•efficiently managing day-to-day operations with regard to the amount of cash required
•selecting appropriate investment opportunities that result in positive cash flow
•monitoring the profitability of products and services to ensure they are cash generative and not cash destroying,
•having a plan for managing excess cash that exceeds demand
Cash rather than profit has always been the ultimate determinant of whether a business survives.

They are simple yet powerful actions that unleash the mojo (magical powers) of substantial, sustainable cash flow. In this book you will discover that unleashing the cash flow mojo is within the grasp of every business owner who cares to make use of it.
By reading this book, you will have a better chance than others of unleashing the mojo and using it to good effect. This book is not a motivational tool. It is a guide to a new way of thinking about and handling money. It contains the steps of a system and explains how to avoid the fatal mistakes inherent in managing the cash flow in a business. It even goes so far as to guide you through reversing mistakes you have made with money in the past.
The key is the sub-title: The Business Owner's Guide to Predicting, Planning and Controlling Your Company's Cash Flow. Most business owners work in reverse using accounting to look at where the money went (often, more than what came in), rather than PLANNING and CONTROLLING.
