Navigating the Rivers of Cash is a practical business book in which the author seeks to inspire ambitious business leaders and entrepreneurs to create and build exceptional businesses with a sustainable purpose in society, whilst also, as leaders, becoming more insightful, strategic, creative, calmer and purposeful. The book takes a mentoring, rather than consulting, approach.

The author shares simple ideas and questions with the aim of helping the reader to draw their own conclusions that are unique to their individual personality, environment and objectives in such a way as to enable them to take their business to the next level.
