Mum’s desktop frustrations
In late 2013, my mum asked me to help her forecast how much cash she needed to expand her business. Having spent 7 years in Investment Banking, forecasting the cash flow of multi-billion dollar businesses, building a cash flow forecast in Excel is pretty easy for me.
After producing the Excel forecast for Mum, we realised that my Excel was way too complicated, took forever to update, and was always crashing on her computer.
