Are you tired of juggling balls in the air scared you won’t make payroll every week?
You may be tempted by some of the new funding options popping up everywhere, but exercise caution before jumping in to the first offer in your in-box.
There are obviously many well-established, as well as newly formed lending companies with deep knowledge of specialist industries, who are capable of obtaining loans and lines of credit for your company. Beware of those companies offering deals that are simply to good to be true, because, generally speaking, they are too good to be true, and could end up putting you and your company in a precarious financial position. It may seem simple to apply, and often the automated approach makes the process less personal and easier to navigate, but simply put, at some point there needs to be a conversation, a personal touch to establish you are making the right choices.
There are many scammers who disguise themselves as legitimate lenders, and they hide their intentions extremely well. Once you have made the decision to secure some kind of financing, make sure and do plenty of research first. The lure of fast, easy money, and a simple fix to financial problems, can be extremely tempting when your company is in financial crisis, or simply needs to make urgent payment to a supplier. Check that the Securities and Exchange Commission regulates your potential lender. Innovative ways of securing money can be an excellent option, and are different from those companies overpromising and under delivering. Choose wisely!
