CASH FLOW - LIFEBLOOD OF YOUR BUSINESS Cash is often referred to as the lifeblood that enables a business to survive and prosper, and this is not without reason. While a business can survive for a short time without sales or profits, without cash it will die, so ready cash is the primary indicator of business health. For this reason the inflow and outflow of cash needs careful monitoring and management if the business is to stay healthy. Cash is King! 4164 TBSM 42-800 $50 August 7-14
