  2. Growth is one of the most dangerous times for a business, extreme growth, especially, because you have to have capital there. You have to be able to build. You have to be able to grow, and it can be honestly out of control, and businesses can run out of cash so quickly.
  3. 70% of businesses, well over half, that fail were profitable when they went out of business.
  4. Every business needs to know the length of its runway - the amount of time until they run out of cash.
  5. When it comes to cash flow knowing is always better than not knowing because not knowing is not going to save your business.
