Chutes and Ladders! Finance is FUN.


– Okay, stay with me here. This is you. Let’s acknowledge my artistic expertise. This is your dream on steroids. In the case of the entrepreneur, that’s your goal, that’s
what you want to do, that’s your million dollar,
seven-figure business, multimillion dollar eight-figure
business, who knows? But everybody’s got one of those. Doesn’t necessarily apply
just to entrepreneurs. There is a path from here to there that you probably see pretty clearly. We all do. But what’s the reality? Along the way, landmine, landmine, landmine, landmine but also along the way, let’s make them green, opportunity, opportunity, opportunity, opportunity. And you remember Chutes and Ladders? I remember Chutes and Ladders. Think of these as the chutes, every single one of these
is going to shoot you back to the beginning or down a little bit. Remember that big one at the very top that shot you all the way
back to the beginning? But also very cool, ladders
boost you a little bit. Every now and them one of
them will boost you way up. So, pretty simply, we want
to avoid the landmines and take advantage of the opportunities but here’s the thing. If we can’t identify them, we can’t avoid them and it all comes down to one term, I was going to say one word
but it’s actually two words. One term and it’s called, in business, there’s a lot of things in real life but in business cash forecast. Think of the forecast as something that defines your boundaries for you so that you can actually see and still aim yourself at that goal even though in truth to get there and just so lucky to have
exactly one color left, to get there you’re not going
to drive a straight line, you’re going to drive lines
to avoid these obstacles and hit these opportunities. Oh yeah and it’s going to
go all sorts of directions you never planned but
you’re going to get there. But the only way you can get there is if you can see these
things coming at you and the only way to be
able to see those things coming at you and be
able to react to them, say it with me, cash forecast and that is today’s lesson in Finance is Fun ’cause trust me, every time you hit one of these and you shoot way ahead because you were able to see
it in advance, that’s fun. Have a great Tuesday or
whatever day it is today.
