Cash flow is the lifeline of a business and yet it remains a mystery for many often confused with profits. For example, it’s not unusual for a company to be profitable and have negative cash flow – a situation most business owners at some time experience and have no idea why. The One Percent Solution will provide an overview of company cash flow and explain the seven levers that effect cash flow from operations and show how a small change in any one lever can have a large impact on company cash flow. Attendees receive an Excel Financial Scorecard and Budget Plan to help monitor and manage company cash flow.
To be the premier comprehensive resource for the Cherokee County business community.
To promote business and the community while expanding the economy and enhancing the quality of life.
