Driving Revenue

You’re a business owner. You naturally want to have a growing and successful venture. To do so, you need to transform it into a money-making machine. Just like all machines, your business has a primary purpose—to make money. After all, that’s really what it all comes down to. We can have all the passion in the world; we can have a great product or service, but if the business is not making money, it will not survive. But the opposite is also true—if it can make money, you’ll have a financially successful business that you own, instead of owning a high-demanding, low-paying job.

Can I Take Time Off Without My Business Collapsing?

Deciphering Money Scripts

We all tend to feel certain ways about money. Some worry about it, some worship it, others have a great respect for it, and still others fear it. But what most don’t understand is that these perceptions, regardless of where they fall on this scale, are not random. Rather, they are our money scripts—core beliefs about money that were developed in our childhood and influence financial behaviors throughout our lives. These beliefs are typically unconscious, yet they have the ability to profoundly shape our financial decisions and attitudes. For CFOs, understanding…

Where Did the Money Go?

While understanding revenue, expenses, and profit is crucial for any business owner, cash flow is an equally important metric in truly understanding a business’s financial health. Cash flow, representing the movement of money both in to and out of a business bank account, can be positive or negative, and will fluctuate as the business shifts and expands. A positive cash flow is just as it sounds—more money is coming into the account than leaving it. A negative cash flow, in contrast, means the exact opposite—more money is leaving the account than coming in.
