Episode 75: 7 Deadly Cashflow Mistakes to Avoid

Do you have an accounts receivable process?

If you answered no, there’s bad news for you…

Because that’s the second thing on this list of cashflow mistakes to avoid.

The other 6 are covered in the episode.

Almost every business will encounter problems that are a result of poor cashflow at some stage.

And absolutely every business could be better at managing cashflow.

It’s really important because as a business, getting this wrong is basically oxygen deprivation.

You can’t pay your bills and your business dies.

Yes, that’s the extreme end of the scale…

But the problems are just as bad at the other end.

Getting this wrong could mean your margin is slipping through your fingers every time you finish a job.

Without you really knowing it’s happening, or why.

It’s a sickening feeling realizing there are holes where you’re literally leaking profit.

Thinking about how long it’s been that way, and how much you’ve lost already.

Let this be your sign to see where you stand.

Plugging the gaps is often simple.

But the simple changes in behavior will have a massive impact.

Whether that’s for your business, as it becomes easier to pay bills or invest back into the business.

Or for you, as you find it easier to sleep at night because you know where the money’s going, and that it’s not disappearing.
