From the Back Cover

CASH FLOW—THE SECRET OF SMALL BUSINESS SUCCESS

Every small business is different, but most small business owners have a lot in common. They have a great entrepreneurial idea, as well as the drive and passion to make it happen, but they often lack the basic financial skills they need to succeed. Worst of all, they don't understand the vital importance of cash flow in keeping theirbusinesses healthy.

This uniquely practical guide shows why cash flow is hugely important to small businesses like yours. Cash flow is a sign of your business's health and success; and it can be adjusted through simple actions that have a big impact on your ultimate success or failure. Small Business Cash Flow will help you master all the important information and skills you need to keep your cash flowing in the right amounts and directions.

"This is the tool every small business owner needs to run a business. Small businesses live and die by cash flow, and this practical guide shows you how to maximize your cash so you don't come up short. And no one explains things more clearly or with specific how-to guidance than Denise O'Berry."
—Anita Campbell, talk show host and Editor of Small Business Trends (smallbiztrends.com)

"How refreshing——and useful——to see pricing and marketing set in the context of creating and managing cash flow. This is a book I'll recommend to new business owners and veterans who suffer from 'Feast or Famine Syndrome.' "
—Marcia Yudkin, author of 6 Steps to Free Publicity

"You can have the greatest plan, product, and service and still fail, if you don't manage money in and out of your business. Denise O'Berry knows this and in Small Business Cash Flow gives practical, employable advice to get the most out of your business. This is a book all small business owners should read and one I'll reference often."
—Jim Logan, author of Cash Flow Blog

I really liked this book very much. It clearly provides strategies for making your business a financial success. Without cash flow you don't have a business. And the book does a good job of pointing out how a small business owner can stay on top of the cash flow issue in running her business.

As a college-trained accountant, turned CPA, turned tax attorney, I learned about Statement of Cash Flows in school. I was a little surprised to hear the author differentiate between a Cash Flows Statement and a Cash Flows Budget. But that's OK, she did a good job emphasizing how important having postive cash flows is, and how to make sure they either get to be positive or stay positive.

My favorite chapter was #6 about pricing. I thought the topic was covered very well. I think the book could be improved upon by adding a chapter about business plans and their components. And it would have been nice to see an explanation about the importance of studying the competition and how the competition markets its goods or services and how it reaches its customers. I felt this book forgot to tell its readers that entrepreneurs don't have to reinvent the wheel when starting or strategizing their businesses. Much can be copied.

I would have liked the book better if less emphasis had been placed on finding and retaining an accountant. Today computers are so important to a small business owner, and most know how to use them. As a result, getting a copy of Quickbooks Pro and studying it will make the need for an accountant not so important. A consulting practice that specializes in using Quickbooks Pro for bookkeeping purposes should probably be consulted in order to set the software program up initially.

This is not just a guide to managing your money. Denise O'Berry tells you what you need to know to make--and keep--more money from your small business.

There is a lot of solid, practical, how-to advice, and the best information on pricing I have seen.

If you have a small business or you are thinking about starting one, this book belongs on your shelf.

Denise O'Berry is right. In the US we tend to raise employees, not business owners. Most of us with the passion and commitment to be small business entrepreneurs woefully lack the important information we need to handle the money side of business well. O'Berry's book fills in this gap very nicely.

The chapters are written tightly, with information on every aspect of cash flow from choosing and working with an accountant, your best business advocate, to finding and keeping cash, setting and managing a budget. and pricing. There are also practical tips on creating customer loyalty and lots of helpful information on marketing, the lifeblood of any small business. Especially useful at the end of the book are 25 pages of resources, including copies of documents and reports you can access at the Small Business Cash Flow web site.

I've always been afraid of the money end of small business, thinking I needed to be a math or accounting whiz to learn it. But this book makes it almost fun! A focused, easy read, the book is a tool you'll want to keep nearby to refer to again and again.

This book is very useful for small companies. It gives knowledge about many subjects which can effect cash flow. I advise this book to all people doing small business. However if you want detailed knowledge only about cash flow this book is not for you

Denise O'Berry has scored! With Small Business Cash Flow she hits a home run. I say this because books about cash flow and accounting hold little interest for me, generally speaking. But I can't say that about this book. Denise has done a great job of making this important topic accessible and even fun. She covers it like it should be covered, from a holistic perspective. She even talks devotes a chapter to marketing!

One of my favorite lines in this book: "It's all about Action".

Denise reminds that all the planning in the world goes nowhere without action to follow it. She offers a variety of checklists, worksheets and other useful resources.

She starts the book with a priceless chapter on how to pick your accountant. I love this because she goes into detail with specific suggestions on how to find, interview and evaluate an accountant to make sure they'll be a good fit for you and your business.

Other good stuff from this book: "Document your processes".

As a consultant who helps clients do this, I'm thrilled Denise includes this in her book. Too many small businesses never document how they do what they do. Without this it's hard to build the foundation you need to grow your business and make it sustainable.

I am happy to recommend this book to my clients and friends. I think it would be a useful read for anyone who owns, manages or is thinking about starting a small business. Well done Denise!
