You deal with financial activities that relate to cash flow, financing, and accounting. Cash flow is about tracking and managing money coming in and money going out. Financing is about having access to capital to fund your operations when cash gets tight or you're investing to expand. Accounting is about tracking all financing activities so you can accurately file taxes and also analyze your financial performance.
