The role played by a “Cash Cow” component in your business portfolio is often undervalued and overlooked. Simply stated, the term “Cash Cow” is a term commonly used to describe a product or service which consistently generates positive cash flow.

Start-up businesses typically work with a limited cash reserve. As an initial step in your planning process, prepare a cash flow projection for the purpose of finding the point at which the business will reach a “breakeven” point” and subsequently begin to generate a positive cash flow. Despite the amount of research carried out by entrepreneurs, often revenue projections are overly optimistic and operating costs underestimated.
