Ray Kroc, the entrepreneur behind the McDonald’s Corporation, stated, “I didn’t invent the hamburger. I just took it more seriously than anyone else.” Likewise, I didn’t invent Cash Flow Analysis.

What Have You Done for Me Lately?

You may find the title listed above to be sort of strange… Or interesting? Or antagonistic? However, I really intended for it to be “stimulating” for you and your thought process.

A Confession to Make

Avoiding the Gap!

I recently was talking with a Client about the achievements he had been enjoying the past two years, despite the downturn in the dairy industry.
