CASH FLOW IS BUSINESS OXYGEN
Oxygen is something we take for granted until it runs out, then what seemed important suddenly evaporates and makes way to our newest and highest priority.
Without Oxygen, we die… the rapidly increasing discomfort of a lack of oxygen immediately triggers an action, and when survival is in question, and your business goes into negative numbers, it comes down to how urgently and effectively you deal with this problem.
Waiting and bunkering down in the hope that the previous cash channels are going to come back online anytime soon will be a sure-fire way of dying a slow death of a thousand cuts.
This current turbulent world economy is changing the way we do business forever and has no doubt thrown at you an additional myriad of Urgent problems and spot fires to put out.
While these challenges must be overcome, and the fires put out before they get too big, your highest level of attention and laser focus must be directed to your “Business Oxygen.”
CASH FLOW your ability to measure it, enhance it, increase it, protect it and store it is your life preserver.
You must be able to accurately identify your Oxygen Burn Rate and act quickly to position yourself for survival.
The problem I’m seeing is that business owners are overestimating their “Oxygen Burn Out Time” and are too optimistic and relaxed about how long they have left.
The reality is that if you don’t cut quickly and deeply and plug the holes sooner rather than later you will have burned it up unnecessarily and once it is gone it’s GONE.
Get Clear on your financial status and short-term cash flow position.
Please understand no one is coming to save you and if you don’t have enough runway to trade out of this crisis you will not be able to take off when the opportunity presents itself.
