Business Finance

A business financial plan is a forecast of future performance for your business, which is often your biggest asset.  Privately held businesses can benefit greatly from taking the time to do a financial plan because such a plan helps you, business owner, better manage cash flow by preparing for situations that could result in cash shortages, such as seasonal fluctuations in revenues. The financial plan is normally prepared as part of an overall business planning process, during which goals are set and strategies are chosen to help the business grow in the upcoming year.  You do not have to be an expert in finance to be a good financially literate CEO.  You simply must develop a financial “intelligence” using the information provided to you by your CFO.  The attached self assessment and white paper shows you how to convert information from your CFO into information you can use to run your business.   The articles and FAQs are updated from time to time with additional information related to this topic.
