Where to Look for a Small Business Line of Credit
Anyone who has been in business knows that there are both growth and slow times in a small business’s life. In fact, those growth periods are why small business owners stay in the game. There is nothing like the energy that is created when your company is growing. On the other extreme there is nothing worse than the down periods in a business. A small business’s revenue and profits often runs like a squirrel, never in a straight line. As a result, the trick in business is staying around through those periods and having financing or a small business line of credit in place to handle both ends of the spectrum. They say managing cash in a small business is like trying to walk across a river that’s only 4 feet deep. Even though you should be able to keep your head above water; if you don’t plan, you could drown in the middle.
Getting a bank line of credit is hard right now
It is a tough time to borrow money or to get a small business line of credit in today’s financial market and that trend will probably continue for many years. A bank really only wants to give you a line of credit or fund when you don’t need it and when you really need it, your bank will make it so laborious, challenging and costly that you might just forget about putting one in place. Then, when you really need that fund, it will take too long to get it.
There are alternatives to a commercial bank
“Hard Money Lending” is a new trend in the financial sector. Hard money lending is when private companies, not banks lend money to a company. It is usually based on factors that banks or other financial institution will not consider and the fund often can be closed very quickly.
