They discuss Bowden's success at collecting $8 million in past due receivables for a past employer and how that led her to author her book so she can help other business owners keep a healthy cash flow.

Bowden discusses:

  • How different departments in a business need to work together to keep cash flow healthy.
  • The key ingredients of a successful AR department in any business.
  • Steps businesses should take now to close out Q4 with little to no aged receivables.
"Collections in the business world is a puzzle. There's four pieces. There's usually sales, accounts payable, accounts receivable and contracts.
One of the four pieces, if something goes left or something goes right, you have to figure out where the break down is."
