Cash is the only life and death issue for your business. There are many important things in your business to worry about – people, products, service – but these are all important because they impact cash.
Credit, "There's no such thing as a free lunch." This adage refers to the idea that it
is impossible for a person to get something for nothing. The cost is hidden and comes in
a form of freedom, mental & physical health.
