Insider Gary Patterson challenges C-level executives to expose their books, reveal their true company financial health, and avoid disaster, with seven secrets!

While the creative financing elephant has arrived - courtesy of Toyota, Lehman, Goldman, Greece, Madoff, and others - what is most disturbing is that executives are using erroneous numbers as opposed to "cooked numbers" to make critical decisions.

Risks are what really go wrong when you are not looking: stupid things like bounced checks, losing your best customers or best people when you are blindsided. He helps you create peripheral vision in your business so you are not blindsided. You need a perspective of business under the microscope and to have lived to tell the tale.

Patterson has learned one thing from analyzing and helping over 200 companies: "What You Don't Know About Your Business Can Cost You Your Business." Sticking out your balance sheet and coughing gets you what you need to know in time for needed procedures which can mean the difference between life and death, in your product, business, department, life or job.
