“The word flow has many shades of meaning but most involve the steady movement of something. … The verb flow often describes the movement of fluids, such as water or even blood, but it can also describe other things that move in a constant stream.”
So why on earth are we talking about “flow” on a business site for? Well I think it actually at the core of it all. When we are a founder in a business and it is growing it can be an amazing feeling. Revenue is coming in, customers are buying, suppliers are happy. The business is “flowing”. Things feel right. They feel easy. And that is flow. And then it goes wrong. It doesn’t feel so right. The business isn’t “flowing”.
And here’s the thing, when your business isn’t flowing it affects your personal life. It affects your personal flow. So I strongly believe that personal and business flow are intertwined. It makes sense to look at ways to get them both working.

We talked a bit above about business flow about when it felt right versus when it felt wrong. There are a number of factors involved but I’m going to define it in financial terms. I describe it as an efficient conversion process of creating assets. Turning those assets in to revenue. Turning that revenue in to profit. And turning that profit in to cash. Rinse. Repeat.
