When you hear the words financial management, cash flow strategies, or balancing your checkbook, which of the following do you do?
- Roll your eyes and think to yourself, “BORING!”
- Zone out and think of something else.
- Say, “I’m not good with numbers.”
- Get excited about dealing with the numbers.
If you are like most entrepreneurs and practitioners, getting excited about the numbers is probably not one of your choices.
Believe it or not, despite the fact that doing business is about making money, entrepreneurs and practitioners often have little interest in learning the intricacies of managing money.
Yet the businesses that succeed financially are those with leaders who are willing to pay attention to their numbers.
