growing fast, the two things we can run out of ve t are:


the last session I talked about making sure you ve the capacity to grow--cash and quality are rea t an extension of capacity.

here will the cash come from?

st, let’s look at an example.

u get a $1,000,000 one year contract! e contract is full cost reimbursement! startup costs! (LOL) e funder will pay you in 45 days! (LOL x 2) gh mission priority! this a good deal or what?

you bill your funder after the first 30 days, and th ke 45 more days to pay you, (neither of which is usual), what’s happened? u’ve done great mission. u’ve helped more people. d....

u have loaned the funder $204,479 interest free the duration of the contract! $1,000,000 divided by 365 times 75=$204,479.

ou can’t come up with $205,000 you can’t ord the “no risk” $1,000,000!

here do you get the $205k? Banks won’t lend it (why not?) You can’t sell stock...

om prior years’ profits.

e $205k is called “working capital”, and you only t it from making (and saving) money in prior ars.

member: Money enables mission. Profit enables more mission.
