Are you building all of your utilities (power, water, waste, etc)?

If you are, you are not 'supposed' to do that. People recommend that speciallise in one or two things (from utilities or resources) and import the rest. You are 'supposed' to trade.

Also, go to the trading screen and trade (sell) what you have in excess. There is a tutorial in the game for trading.

Can u explaine trading to me in game? i dont understand it.. that all, when ever i see something is +1 i always give that away to omnicorp to receieve more income but the tutorial isnt the greatest in game.

As far as i remember you dont get money for selling something to omnicorp. You get "trading points" and with them you can import things you dont have. You need to overproduce something, export it to omnicorp and import things you dont produce by yourself. You CANT produce everything by yourself, this will eat up your money.

A easy way is to make a lot of bureau´s, much more than you actually need for your own city, export the bureau jobs to omnicorp and import oil, electricity and other things.

you probably built too many buildings that have a mantainence cost

you can trade with Omni Corp or your other cities.
the goal it to make the cash token positive but exporting excessive things and importing those you need.

Make small city. Make positive cash flow ~17k-40k and put the game speed on max. Go outside for a walk, return and you will have a lot of millions
