    Phil, Important info for entrepreneurs. We always have an accountant go over cash flow with companies in our university-affiliated incubator. Employee and co-founder fraud are also big challenges for small business and startups. Having a good handle on your company's cash flow helps reduce this risk. I bet you have some great stories about fraud!

    #37 "In any event, none of that changes your suggestions for small business. "We" have to eat". Amazon has many more sources of money to pay their bills! " (RB)

    Very true. Anyone looking at the situation should understand that by reinvesting profits in capital expansion and other forward-looking expenses before those profits reach the "bottom line" is also a way of shielding them from income taxation. Moreover, that the game at Amazon is a very complicated one. And that the small-business person does not generally have available virtually inexhaustible outside (of the business proper) sources of cash inflow to make up operating losses. Thanks for reading and commenting.

    #35 To quote from the article, which confirms two decades of "no-profit" operation, "When you buy Amazon stock (the main currency with which Amazon employees are paid, incidentally), you are buying a bet that he can convert a huge portion of all commerce to flow through the Amazon machine." The piece confirms that Bezo's game plan is NOT to build returns for investors, but to continually expand it hold on a future share of the market of everything (MoE). What has sustained Amazon in all of this is it flogging of stock to investors and employees. Perhaps Amazon will continue to do well now that it is settling back a bit into a more traditional business model... and maybe not. But I would make the point that the Amazon model of being solely cash-flow driven is not one to be adopted by the average small business.

    #33 Indeed Phil..so many are trading, buying, selling and profiting too in this virtual melee. Richly disguised Ponzis. But the profit you speak of should be the Holy Grail and denominator for SMEs. Cheerio!

    10/06/2017 #33 Phil Friedman
    #32 Praveen, people continue to trade in the stock in the hope of profiting on the trading. It's effectively a ponzu scam that eventually may very well leave the last shareholders "holding the bag." But whether that is sooner or later, the activity of churning stock is not at all the same as running a business in pursuit of profit. Cheers!

    #30 Well if it aint worth it, why do folks continue to invest? The trading is paying off and someone sure is making something somewhere ;) Two decades is a long time Phil. And the juggernaut rolls on! Not sure how it would all end up though. There are some listed firms here that do not even have their own manufacturing units...but still trade in millions making 'profits' on paper and attracting fresh investors. Aint no slammers for scammers no more ;)

    #29 Thank you, Praveen, for reading and commenting. I submit that there is very little of what we would normally call "net worth" in Amazon. What they push is their dominance in market share and their potential, all of which has been built not on retained profits, but on the massive inflow of investment. For nearly two decades, Amazon lived on cash flow from selling stock while showing a net annual loss. The question in my mind is what would happen if cash inflow from new investment dried up? Or do you think Amazon is now "too big to fail"?
    Praveen Raj Gullepalli
    10/06/2017 #29 Praveen Raj Gullepalli
    Makes so much sense Phil.

    We have a local version of Amazon following closely in its footsteps without the legacy and accumulated net worth. Friends working there continue to tell me how every delivery is made at a loss to the company. But investments continue to flow, top management is making good with the hefty salary packages, and they are even acquiring smaller competitors. Only time will tell.

    #24 The practice in big business these days is often to churn sales as fast as you can, even at a loss -- as long as you're throwing off sufficient cash to keep the lights on. Then sell out based on market share and move on, leaving the certain wreckage in your rear view mirror. But the strategy rarely works for a small-business operator. Cheers!

    #16 Thank you, Franci, for the positive words. In my experience, far too man small-business people and would-be small-business operators lack fundamental understanding of P&L, so caught up are they in the idea of owning their own business and with whatever brilliant ideas they are trying to sell. This series is intended to capture and relay the fundamentals in a quick and easy way to understand. Cheers!

    #15 I agree, Matt, that cash flow rules -- in the short term. But if short-term positive cash flow is being generated by incurring long-term debt or by pricing current sales at a loss (thereby building up short to medium term losses), your cash-flow driven actions will eventually kill your business, most likely sooner rather than later. Excepting always, of course, Amazon. Cheers!

    #14 Well, yes, Michael. The happy small-business owner is one who's turned a profit. My concern, though, is that too many think that because they happen to have enough cash on hand to pay the bills, they are actually turning a profit. Which may or may not be true. Cheers!

    #13 Good question, Todd. Only @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, or @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood can say for sure. But my guess is that beBee ownership is relying on its own investment and that of others to keep sufficient cash flowing in, until they've built the MAUs (monthly average user numbers) sufficiently high enough to monetize by either selling commercial access to the accumulated database or sell the platform to some cash-rich corporate mark which is trying to divest itself of the kind of cash reserves that make it a target for a hostile takeover or both. IMHO. Cheers!
