Determining the right amount of cash to have on hand each month can be a challenge for many businesses.

“I thought of Debra again yesterday as I presented the financial review to my team. Sure enough, top-line revenues were down as we’d forecasted, yet we still turned a small profit thanks to knowing how to forecast and being proactive in trimming expenses. I am grateful to Debra for giving me this knowledge.”

Now I know what a real CFO does! The guidance and advice you gave us has really helped us focus in on where we want to go financially as a company. I think having your eyes on this will be invaluable as we move to the next stage.
It has been a pleasure working with you. We leave each meeting with a greater understanding of our cash flow and how important it is to keep eyes on this!
Being customers of Debra, much of the information at the seminar was review for us – which was great because we can never hear those reminders too much. For first time people, I think the seminar would be great because it gave enough information for them to know what they didn’t know and was a good ‘teaser’ to eventually hire Debra.”
Since working with Centennial Revenue Management, I have become even further engaged and thrilled with their services.

They have their process for cash flow down to a science – and it works! I only wish I had known about Centennial Revenue Management sooner.”

After using Centennial Revenue Management for about a year, I could not be happier. They really helped me as a business owner understand cash flow and its importance to running my business.
