Once proper labor pricing is determined, the next major obstacle is cash flow. Cash flow puts more companies out of business than any other single thing, except improper pricing. This session "walks" the contractor through the process of developing a month-by-month, department-by-department, cash flow budget. The budget then tells each contractor what departments are making money and which are not, and projects their monthly cash flow needs.
