Cash flow challenges can be one of the most frustrating aspects of running a business. However, there are several strategies that business owners can employ to overcome these challenges and maintain a healthy cash flow.

Firstly, it’s essential for business owners to create a detailed cash flow forecast. Try predicting incoming and outgoing cash flows, will allow you to proactively manage your finances and make informed decisions about expenditures and investments.

With my over 20 years’ experience in business, some of the ways I have been able to manage this frustration is by offering incentives to customers, discounts or other perks for customers to encourage timely payments. And, when we used to print, I renegotiated payment terms with suppliers to extend payment deadlines to provide breathing room for cash flow management.

Another thing we did was to diversify revenue streams, we not only sell advertising in EM Digital, but we have the exquisite club, directory listing and events we do like the Wellness And Style week (click HERE to join us this year). By doing these, we are able to spread our risk and mitigate the impact of any downturns in our primary revenue source.
