Lost profits due to poor financial management are common with small businesses.

  • More than half of U.S. businesses have lost $10,000 or more by foregoing a project or sales specifically due to issues created by insufficient cash flow. (Quickbooks study)

  • 82% of small businesses fail because of poor cash flow management skills or poor understanding of cash flow (U.S. Bank)

A cash flow projection is the most important tool to master your cash flow. It can help you:

  • Identify “cash leaks” that are draining your profits

  • Spot periods of low cash flow before they become a crisis

  • Know when you have the cash to capture opportunities

  • Plan your dividends and equity distribution

This course provides an easy template and shows you how to use it to reduce stressful cash flow surprises and position you to capture the next big opportunity. You’ll also receive:

  • A cash flow template for Microsoft Excel (can also be used in Google Sheets)

  • Step-by-step video instructions on how to use the template.

  • Video courses on the importance of cash flow, understanding your past cash flows, and the benefits of cash flow projections.

  • A document that explains different methods for projecting your cash flows.

  • Access to Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets
  • Small business owners and managers who want to improve the plan for their financial future.
