  • Business Growth Strategies Through Business Financing Recorded: Apr 6 2021 31 mins
    Ty Kiisel
    How can you strategically borrow capital for your business to help it grow? As you’re looking for a small business loan or financing, this is important to keep in mind. This webinar will help you evaluate this question.

    The most common reason for business failure is a lack of adequate cash. In fact poor cash flow causes 84% of the business failures in the US. In order to help with cash flow hurdles, many small business owners turn to business loans and financing. A reactionary approach to a small business’s need for capital can satisfy a short-term need or meet an unanticipated shortfall, but might not help the business grow.

    Borrowing strategically can be easier said than done, we will help guide you through how to approach this so you can take steps to grow your business through business financing.

    Gerri Detweiler
    One of the most undervalued credit opportunities a small business owner can leverage is trade credit or tradelines with suppliers and vendors. Not only is this a powerful way for a business to build a strong credit profile, it can also be a great way for small businesses to leverage credit to grow their businesses.

    In this presentation we'll review what tradelines (also known as Net-30 accounts, vendor credit, supplier credit, and trade credit) are and how your business can leverage them to improve your cash flow. Utilizing trade credit to build your credit and improve your cash flow can open up more opportunities for you to grow your business and access financing.

    This is an important presentation for small businesses to learn how to best leverage their business credit for business growth.

    Ty Kiisel
    Anticipating your business cycle enables business owners to be more strategic and less reactionary to the business’ ebb and flow but this is only the first step to being strategic with your business budgeting and borrowing. In this webinar we'll talk about 5 things that will make taking a strategic approach to budgeting and borrowing easier.

    Of the 30 or so million small businesses in the United States, those that survive the first few years are far too few; and only 40% of small businesses are even profitable. What’s more, the most common reason for business failure is a lack of adequate cash. In fact poor cash flow causes 84% of the business failures in the US. Our goal with this webinar is to help you build a strong and healthy business that can start to shift these statistics.
