94 August 2017 | beautystorebusiness.com Gawrav Sinha, gettyimages.com Run your business with more ease and profi tability by following these simple suggestions. By Steven Austin Stovall, Ph.D. he sales receipts show that you had a good month and your expenses haven't been too out of line.

This is the bane of the retailer. Where many beauty stores falter is that they hyperfocus on profits rather than cash flow. There is, of course, nothing wrong with profits—it's what pays your salary. But properly managing your cash flow ensures that you have money when you need it, and you don't find yourself in the red at inconvenient times.
