A business model is a compact, simplified view of a business, designed for a holistic description and analysis of the entire system of interconnected business processes in a company.

Why Cash Flow is More Important

Why Cash Flow is More Important

Cash flow is the lifeblood of any business

The goal of all business owners should be to have more cash. Cash is used to finance your salary, cover your overhead, pay your suppliers and purchase equipment.
Without a healthy and constant cash flow, your business will not survive. If you run out of money, then it’s time to pack.

Your profit is what remains after you have paid all your expenses, and this is what your tax is calculated on. This may seem strange, but there were enterprises that went bankrupt, still reporting a profit, and that was because their cash flow was insufficient. Therefore, it is important to focus on making healthy profits and the fact is that it is your cash flow that supports your business.
