Overcome "but my job isn't cash"

My great mentor, Red Scott, smartly observed that "cash ain't cash unless it's cash!"  Lenders these days promise to lend, and then don't...others send checks that bounce, they offer assurances of payment...then delay, and so on.  To bolster your cash, simply talk to your people frequently about how their actions and activities affect cash. Do let them know we're okay, but we need to focus on cash due to the long-delayed recovery. Get them to forecast where they're going, and how it impacts cash. By simply creating cash awareness, your cash will improve!  See the "Forecaster" and "Cash Manager" tools under New Tools Catalog for more ideas. May your cash really be cash!  Kraig
