Solving the Mystery of the Statement of Cash Flows

The statement of cash flows is part of the financial statement trio. That trio being the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, and Statement of Cash Flows. It measures the actual cash inflow and outflow during an accounting period. We all know that cash is king. We live and die by how much cash we can generate through our business. Therefore, cash flow from operations can be a critical measure of overall success.

Say YES when you mean YES

You are in the office on a typical day. The phone is going nutso and people are constantly in and out asking for help with different items. The next man in your office has a reasonable request. He has been asking for your help for some time now and you just haven't had the time to look at it. We all find ourselves in these situations. The thousand dollar question is --- what do you tell this man?

Education & Designation

Each one of us knows our value and knows what we can do in our individual career in credit. That's like looking into a mirror and seeing yourself with all of your value and knowledge. Having a designation is like turning that mirror into a window. Carrying the initials of your designation on your name is a statement about you and your knowledge and accomplishments. It shows the untrained eye your dedication and your expertise.

Credit Policy - It's as Simple as Taking a Picture!

The Importance of Customer Visits

It has been my experience that customers respond much better when they can put a face to the name that is behind all the calls that are made to them. They seem more willing to open up their pocketbooks to pay us on time or to get caught up when a free lunch has been given to them.

Dressing for Success

We've all heard the saying "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." This is especially true in the business world. Creating a positive first impression with a potential employer, customer, co-worker or business associate is critical. Before we can even say a word, a lasting impression is created that can potentially impact future interactions.

Save Time and Money with E-Signatures

In today's busy, fast-paced world everyone is seeking new ways to save time and money. Here is way that you can electronically sign lien waivers, credit references, and other documents without ever having to print them out or leave your desk to walk to the printer. Previously, I would get a lien waiver emailed to me. I would print out the document, fill it out, sign it, scan it to myself and then finally return it to the customer by email. Now, with Adobe Acrobat XI, when I receive a request for a lien waiver by email as a PDF file, I simply click on "add text" to fill in the amount, through date, job description, and any other information required on the document, then I click on "place signature." This allows me to place my signature electronically onto the waiver.

Power of the Promissory Note

One can hope that the Great Recession is finally behind us and we are on track for economic recovery. While in the midst of this recession, we found a greater need for help from a wide range of clients. Keeping in-line with my company's mission to "provide leadership that builds-up, connects, informs & celebrates Utah's communities & families," I needed to find a way to help these clients while maintaining a healthy accounts receivable.

Overruled!

Most likely, we've all been asked by upper management to sell to a customer we normally wouldn't approve. Hopefully, these types of situations don't happen often. But when they do, they can be frustrating and irritating. Sometimes we may be tempted to pout when our decisions are overruled, or we may secretly hope for the opportunity to say, "I told you so!" Although occasionally tempting, such reactions aren't going to help us or the company gain success. Instead, we need to figure out how to work as a team with upper management to ensure positive outcomes in difficult situations.

Not Just Body Language

The seminar was well attended (740 attendees) and was three full days of information not only on body language, but on simple things that you can do to step up to the next level both professionally and personally. This information was easy to understand and apply in almost every situation. In fact the information was so simply it made you wonder why you hadn't thought of it yourself!

GSCFM - Worth the Effort

Years ago, I was contemplating going back to school to get an MBA degree. While attending a conference, I checked out the presenter's biography. Included was a degree from the NACM Graduate School of Credit and Financial Management. I was intrigued . . . The NACM Graduate school is an advanced Credit and Finance course put on by NACM every summer for two weeks each year. Held at Dartmouth College, it takes two consecutive summers to complete the course (Year 1 and Year 2 students). During the last week of the second year, you are given the option of taking the CCE Exam.

Selling To Native American Tribes

Does your company sell to foreign nations? Your company may be taking this risk and not even know it. If you sell to a Native American Tribe - with or without your knowledge of the tribal ownership of the company, then your company is selling to a Sovereign Nation and the normal credit rules don't apply. The risk - yes risk - your company is exposed to is increased. . . unless you are prepared.

The Real Truth about Volunteer Service

When looking for the right fit in a volunteer opportunity, it is important to evaluate the amount of time you have to give and the commitment you're willing to make. You should also consider your passions and where you'd really like to make a difference. Consider who would you like to work with and if you prefer one-on-one or group settings. And consider what you'd like to gain from the experience.
