In conversation with Robert Gerrish, our experts share advice on cashflow, planning and pricing.

Cash flow: How not to run out of money!

Even in profitable businesses, cash flow can be a significant risk! In this interview, Robert picks the brains of Ingrid Thompson, Founder of Healthy Numbers, to get answers to the most common questions business owners have around cash flow and getting paid.

Topics covered include how to assess your cash flow, the difference between cash flow and profit, how to avoid crunches, understanding ‘burn rate’ and finding a cash cow. You’ll leave with practical ways to predict your cash flow, get paid on time and improve your financial position. 

Planning: How to create an inspiring business vision for 2019

It’s a great time to set some new goals, but before you do, it pays to spend time revisiting, or creating, your business vision. A vision answers the question: ‘What does your ideal future look and feel like?’ It acts as a central and motivating focus for your planning and decision-making. Business marketing maestro Jayne Tancred, co-founder of Tribe of the Tree, runs you step-by-step through a framework for creating your own vision that feels ALIVE with possibility, power and purpose.

Do you have a crystal clear, compelling vision for your business? If not, listen in.

Pricing: How to get paid well for your work

If you’re looking to increase revenue and profit in your business, don’t miss this interview with finance expert, Rhys Roberts, Principal of business advisory service Viridity. As you’ll hear, the secret to setting good, healthy fees is to truly understand what it is that you provide that has the most customer value.

We'll help you charge your worth with advice on recognising why competing on price can be ‘a race to the bottom', understanding the power of value-based pricing, where to find added value that clients will pay for, and moving away from hourly rates.
