Equipment breakdowns, license and permit fees, customer payment delays, and many other unexpected expenses for which you may not have the cash on hand to cover.
And If you don’t address this cashflow issue quickly, it could make or break your business…as Henry Lopez has shared many times on this podcast, running out cash is one of the top reasons businesses fail.
