Many people wait too long to start looking after their small business cash flow? Why? There’s so many reasons but you’re here because you want to learn how to make positive cash flow changes in your business. It is important to have a plan – a plan to pull more money out of your business – so that you can spend more time with your family and truly enjoy doing the things that you love to do.
With On Track Cash Flow we show you how you can use the techniques we share with you to gain confidence in managing the finances in your business, to massively increase cash flow and even find ways to leverage cash flow!
You will learn the 7 key drivers of cash flow and how they work so that you can uncover the hidden sources of cash that likely already exist in your business.
During this course we will also challenge how you think about work, debt and risk – how you define these and the impact that this will have on your future wealth.
You might be thinking, “Do I really need to know how to do this?” Short answer is YES you do. Even if you have someone helping you with doing your books, understanding your own cash flow is essential. To be honest, no one will care about your money more than you.
Building your own cash flow is something you need to do once (even if this is the only time you ever prepare one of your own) because you need to understand how it is put together. You will then clearly see what drives cash and how WHAT you do on a day to day basis directly ties into your profit and to your goals.
This will also mean you can have better conversations with your bookkeeper or accountant, and the budget that you prepare will be more accurate and reliable. You know your business better than anyone else!
That’s not all though, you will learn how to use data to make better financial decisions and also the 8 financial elements that every small business owner needs to consider to truly build a business that will support the lifestyle they want.
Let us help you start making positive changes in your small business, so that you can evolve your life into one that is more financially rewarding and that brings with it much greater choice!

We’ve seen what works in starting and building businesses (and more importantly what doesn’t). We know what it takes to get your small business running in such a way that both your business and life can become more carefree and enjoyable.
So while there’s no guarantee of success in business, there’s a number of things that you can do along the way to increase your chance of survival..
Turn your business from ordinary, hard work into an extraordinary business that supports the life that you want, giving you more time to do the things that you want to do.
