Financial Management Series: Part II - Analyzing & Managing Your Cash Flow

In this second class of the financial management series, we'll take a close look at where cash comes from in a small business, where it's used in day-to-day operations and how to identify and correct cash flow problems. You'll be able to identify key information on cash flow statements and be able to follow the path of cash as it travels through your company. You'll identify cash flow strategies to use in your organization. You'll become familiar with the sources and use of cash, ratios and the most common "gobblers" of cash in any business. This isn't theory - its practical application for real businesses - like yours!
