Spotlight

Finance tactic: Stimpson got religion about cash flow when White House almost expired due to a lack thereof in its early days. That led her to create a culture in which everyone is highly attuned to how much money is coming in—and when. “We have monthly cash-flow meetings, during which we forecast and update our cash flow into the future,” says Stimpson. “It has become a major tool in running the business.”
