(BPT) - Cash flow is the lifeblood of a business. Positive cash flow means your business is in a position to grow, while negative cash flow may mean you have some tough decisions to make, like whether to pay your employees, vendors or yourself.
Small business owners and the self-employed should always be aware of their cash flow status. Having enough money on hand can dictate your next decision, ultimately having a big impact on the future of your company and its survival. Navigating cash flow struggles can cause even the calmest person to worry.
