In a seasonal business, how do I determine the cashflow and take advantage of the peak season of sales?
I have a personal power generating plant that runs on diesel. The cost of diesel and erratic production of ice blocks because of inadeqaute power output from the power generating plant makes it impossible to produce ice blocks consistently during the peak season. This season is for a period of 4 months in a year. Meanwhile the sales person does not keep regular records of sales and inventory. For the two years of operation, the business maintains the itself; however, I am unable to make a good margin to generate any income for household use from this business.
The business has been on for two years, but I find it difficult to detetrmine the cashflow, and to take adavantage of the peak season of sales. Can you help with suggestions please?
