Bill Ringle Leads Forum on Ways to Improve Cashflow's open conference call for entrepreneurs and business owners on March 1, 2012 will address the subject "Ways to Improve Cashflow."

Philadelphia, PA, March 02, 2012 - Nationally known CEO coach Bill Ringle will lead this month's forum, "Ways to Improve Cashflow," on Thursday, March 1, at 4:00pm ET. Good cashflow is essential to any successful business, but easily becomes a black hole for time and resources when improperly managed. 

Ringle will describe five symptoms that your business has cash flow problems and provide twelve concrete ideas to improve your cash flow. He’ll also discuss how to identify the main causes of delayed payments, ways to be braver asking for payments, and outsourcing collections when all else fails.

“Generating business, operating a business, and growing a business all depend on having funds to spend and invest. Small business owners tell me that they are especially squeezed in a tight economy by delayed payments on one level and rigid credit ceilings on another level, and if you only look at your finances from those two sources, you can find yourself in trouble very quickly,” explains Bill Ringle. “Over the years, my clients have taught me a wide range of new perspectives to identify, anticipate, and ultimately generate win-win situations from no-win situations related to cash flow issues, and that’s what I’ll be sharing on this AskBillRingle call.” gives business owners and entrepreneurs answers to their most pressing business growth questions. The website and accompanying conference calls focus on a different subject each month, and give business owners unprecedented access to Ringle's expertise, experience, and advice. April's topic, "Standing Out From the Crowd," will provide unique tips for grabbing customers’ attention and increasing visibility in your niche.

Bill Ringle works with entrepreneurs and executives who want to overcome the five big challenges to business growth so that they can run profitable and rewarding businesses rather than become stuck and overwhelmed in unfulfilling and draining roles. He has worked on four continents, is the author of four business books, and inspires and educates thousands of business leaders each year through his speaking, coaching, interactive programs, and educational products.

AAA welcome Emerald Knight Director's support of Ethical investments

AAA has welcomed support for ethical investments from the director of Emerald Knight, Robert Hague.

Boston, MA, March 02, 2012 - Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) has welcomed support for ethical investments from the director of Emerald Knight, Robert Hague.

The alternative investment advocacy group has spoken out in support of Mr Hague’s assertions that just because an asset class is ethical, does not mean it won’t produce some very healthy yields for investors.

Emerald Knight was initially launched as a provider of ethical investments with the ethos that investing in sustainable, ethical projects can also generate healthy returns. Mr Hague stands by this claim in his recent statement to the press, where he said, “This may sound obvious but many people don’t know, or are just not interested in what happens to their money once they’ve put it in their bank or pension.

"Going down the SRI route allows you to choose exactly how your cash is being invested and what difference it’s making,” he added.

He added that many of those who have invested in ethically, environmentally or socially responsible funds, projects or markets have often see their investment generate better returns that if they had invested in traditional asset classes.

AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, agrees with Mr Hague, adding, “There is simply no validity in the argument that you can’t make money by investing in ethical projects or making socially responsible investments.”

AAA claims that it is no longer unusual for investors to look for ethical investments as, with the increase in interest in alternative investments, there has also been a general increase in interest in ethical options as the two things often come hand in hand.

A popular option for ethically minded investors is forestry investment, which can help to support sustainable approaches to forestry all over the world, and particularly in emerging economies. Projects such as Greenwood Management’s plantations schemes in Brazil are popular with individual investors and institutions alike as they only require minimum investments of around $10,000.
