All businesses need someone who regularly checks the business “pulse”. An advisory board tracks the health of your business in areas like cash flow, tax obligations, prices of your services, profitability, blow out of costs, and much more.
Understanding the finer details of your business in terms of numbers and what they represent is very important, especially for businesses in a fast growth window, or if things aren’t going as well as planned.
Fast growth can lead to a situation where your business profit doesn’t match your bank account. Depending on your industry, this could mean your business is making a good profit but don’t have any cash. Or it could mean that you have access to cash but your business isn’t actually making any profit.
You need to know where your business profits and your cash flow stand throughout your business journey.
