Christina loves to show entrepreneurs like you how to use the power of numbers to create a business that fuels the life you want to live -- without the expense of hiring a full-time CFO. Many of us were raised to view money as something that should be saved and never spent. But in reality, cash is king and cash burn rate is equally important. Christina dives into the importance of cash with all of her clients and is kind enough to share her advice with our listeners. For example, do you know why your 13-week expenses are so important? Christina does and tells us more about the importance of this particular metric. (She also warns against judging the health of your company based on fairytale metrics -- those that are always on the up but don’t give an accurate picture of your company.)

How to avoid cash comatose after a product launch
I was listening to a podcast that spoke about cash flow. The host mentioned if you need more cash during the month, then turn on the "lead" faucet and sell more. I agree that we need to have a solid lead generation machine as that's how cash comes into the business. However, this mindset about selling more and more when you need cash leads to cash comatose. Cash comatose happens when entrepreneurs don't understand when revenue is actually earned. They use the cash received before they serve the client.
