What belief do you hold about your industry that is not shared by many? by James Rose

Contrary to most, I believe SME’s can grow rapidly without the need for large cash injections.

Business owners tend to reach a plateau in their business and they feel that the only way to push through this is by adding additional resources and raising capital. From my perspective, I often see cash being used as a bandaid to an underlying issue (or set of issues) that need to be properly rectified in order for the business to reach new heights.

Managing cash flow effectively, and optimising existing processes can often be much more powerful than a one-off cash investment.
