I was working with a client recently. She is really sharp - she understands everything that I throw at her and always asks great questions.
In her case, she was anticipating a negative bank balance six weeks ahead. She hired me to help her organize expenses around this particular week, and to specifically find expenses that we could move around to avoid a negative balance.
We went from top to bottom on her list of expenses, which ranged from about $100 to $50,000. We tried to move some to a date after the week with the negative balance.
I realized that what we were doing was like moving chess pieces on a chessboard. Moving a large bill was like moving a king or queen; it could change the strategy of the game.
Moving a pawn - a small bill from $100 to $500 - would not make a huge difference, but if you move enough pawns they add up and can even win the cash flow game for you.
