provides more than thirty in-depth yet succinct case study examples of what actual business owners have done to raise capital to grow their businesses-covering not just what is available but the "how to" to obtain it, what works best, and why for a particular business type. Including everything from pursuing business-friendly community banks and forming strategic alliances to tapping supplier financing and using crowd funding (both donation and equity-based), it shows business owners how to raise the capital they need to grow their businesses.

Read an Excerpt

To clearly understand your company's ability to cover expenses and liabilities, as a business owner you must regularly assess the cash flow statement. So what exactly is a cash flow statement? A cash flow statement records a company's cash inflows and outflows. Stated differently, this statement presents the amount of cash and cash equivalents entering and leaving your company during a specified time frame. The cash flow statement enables you as the owner, your managers, bankers and suppliers to view your company's operations from a cash perspective. Thus, all better understand how smoothly (or not) the company runs its operations, where growth funding is or will come from, and how wisely your firm spends its money. The cash flow statement breaks down the cash inflows and outflows into three sources of cash - operations, financing and investing.
