Here is the next installment of this blog series that presents some ways that a business owner can improve the cash flow of the business. A business owner once asked me why I felt it was important to forecast cash flow.  I responded by reminding him that he had previously told me that he was often worried as to whether he would have enough cash each month to pay the bills.  So, why is cash flow forecasting so important?  Simply

If you are extending credit to your customers, you must be prepared to take on a different role: that of a bill collector. Bad debts cost real money, yet some small businesses are reluctant to go after their slow paying customers. In contrast, large corporations, with the luxury of having collections departments, have the resources to chase down past due receivables. Since you don’t have this luxury, you might want to consider ways to Accelerate Collections and Minimize Receivables. One

Without customers, there is simply no reason for your business to continue to operate. More to the point, without customers you will ultimately be out of business. For every business, the rationale is to attract customers then provide products and services to those customers. To attract more customers, your mission should be to go beyond merely satisfying your customers but delighting them! When you’re selling, your focus should be on your customer and your customer’s needs and your customer’s wants.

It's December, Now It's Time for Tax Planning, Right? Wrong!

You need to know that this does not have to happen to you. Jerry Mills, founder of B2B CFO © and the author of
