Whether in a recession or not, controlling cash is absolutely critical for small firms. Often cash flow problems can be reduced. However, 90% of firms are still failing because of lack of knowledge and skills of the business owner.

Always go to a seminar with the intention of fully immersing yourself in it, otherwise you are unlikely to find the REAL GOLD that is there for the taking.
Don’t blame ‘the seminar’ for not delivering what you wanted if you’re not prepared to participate and fully engage yourself.

If you are reading this blog, then you are likely to be in business or thinking of starting one. You may be using your redundancy money to start your new venture. Whether you are a first time start up or an existing business owner, the EBA is here to put your through ‘our version of business school.’

Business life is rarely plain sailing and there are always going to be situations that may more challenging than you can handle. One of the biggest things you can do for your business, and for yourself if you are the business owner, is to fully acknowledge what’s wrong with the business (even if you don’t know exactly what it is but you know something is not right and you want to find where the money drains are) and then to find the courage to take the steps required to get the business on track.

Most businesses don’t make it beyond 5 years. Whatever size of your company, from one employee (you) upwards, you need to maintain regular contact with your customers, retain them with a great service and delivery and keep them paying on time. Without cash flow you do not have room to manoeuvre your business.
