Financing Your Business
by Brett Krkosska
Finding the capital you need to finance your business can be a confusing and complicated process. Many great ideas stumble at this stage of business building.
Yet, moving through this stage breathes life into your business – giving it forward momentum like a roller coaster barreling down the first big hill. Finding money is just a matter of being informed and choosing the right path for money to enter the business.
There are several options available to you when searching for financing. Some methods of raising funds are less difficult than others, but all require some planning. Basic planning requires that you know the answer to these three questions:
- What will you use the money for?
You must know exactly where the money will be used. You must be specific, as generalities are recipes for disaster. Carefully identify the areas where money should flow into your business.
- How much money do you need?
You should calculate your needs to carry you through initial startup and into your first several months of operation. It’s necessary to have a realistic picture of your needs. Many businesses fail because the money runs out before the business reaches profitability.
- How will you pay back the money?
