As an entrepreneur, business finances are a frequent source of tension. Whether facing payroll challenges or insufficient cash flow for growth, every business owner must make pivotal decisions to resolve the issues. Rather than waiting for a financial crisis, how can you take proactive measures to protect your company?
Banks are trusted capital sources for businesses since they’re cost-effective and risk-averse. As a business banker and consultant to entrepreneurs, Kevin Roddey emphasizes applying for a loan in advance to prepare for emergencies. Securing capital, however, requires demonstrating financial history, a sound business model, and a reputable culture. Additionally, building a rapport with bankers and financial institutions increases funding access.
