The restaurants and promenades in the Docklands (Melbourne) were packed on Monday, night with couples. It was after all Valentine’s Day – the day when everyone declares their undying love for each other… well, at least their “commercial love”.

Apparently, if NAB has anything to do with it, February 15th is now the official day of the year to break off a bad relationship – the “unValentines Day”.

If you’re a small-mid size business owner and struggling to make your operation both profitable and cash flow positive, don’t beat yourself up too much!  Even some of the largest corporations in this country are getting it wrong and stuffing up every day.  Take the CBA for example – one of the largest banks in Australia recently announced a $6 billion profit for 2009-10.  To put this in context, this equates to around a 17 per cent return on investors’ funds, which is impressive indeed in these tough economic times.
