But by making the transition from having data being something you, the expert, know the meaning of, into what is meaningful to your clients, is very important. Cash flow forecasting becomes interesting to your clients. But a lot of numbers, never will.

You don't know how much of the things you are fluent in, is actually gobbledigook or gibberish to your clients. By being able to convert all the intricacies of what is going on, into a Too Long Didn't Read version, your busy clients can then understand what is happening. This will strengthen their business, and your relationship with them.

That sounds like a great idea!
