Reunited and it "Cheers" so Good!
Thursday Financial Tips from Alumni Cheerleaders member, Danetha Doe, former Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader!!
Should I get a business loan? All small business owners know that when you first start out in business, there is usually a lot of time and money invested before you see a substantial return. And sometimes it makes sense to get a loan to carry you through those initial expenses. But you are putting yourself in debt. I always suggest that entrepreneurs ask themselves three questions before seeking out a loan. The first question is have you made your first dollar selling your service or product? If not, I suggest waiting until you've proven that there are potential customers for you. This is helpful for you so you can fine-tune your offering. But also your lenders want to see that this is a proven concept and people actually want to buy from you. For the other two tips, sign up for this week's Money and Mimosas.
