Our latest vintage - Thoughts from the vineyard
While kicking stones, biding time and watching harvesters click away the rows, the mind got to thinking…..
What is this low vineyard yield going to do to me and my vineyard cash flow?? And since standing in the vineyard gives one lots of time to think, another thought (or two).
What is that impact going to do to my clients' cash flows? And how can I help?
The conclusion I came to was that you need to be proactive.
No one likes surprises, least of all bank managers. It's a good idea to be proactive and talk to someone now that the yield is known and find out how it will impact your business and find out what you can do about it. Figure out what came in and when, vs what is going out and when…..
This is the stuff we do every day. We can help with these thoughts and help you when you are in front of those bank managers.
The final thought …. (see obviously van Asch had too much time to think)... This applies not only to vineyards, but to all businesses -
Be proactive & plan; and get in front of those bank manager questions, the more you know the better decisions you make.
