Could you slightly change this and clarify what "cash flow" means?

It seems a lot of people are reading this and assuming that we ran out
of money due to spending all our money on OPW. While in practice, it is
just the financial boring bit that the money on the bank account is
lower because the money hasn't been coming in as quickly as handing it
out. But that'll resolve once we focus upon it.

Or in brief: we are not the best with sticking with financial followup.

I think changing the wording would help a lot in changing the impression
that we spent too much money. A lot of people don't know about "cash
flow", etc.
