Getting Ready for Money
Who's not ready? Tuck in the loan docs, pass the financing and
dig in. But money has an emotional component as well as a financial
one, and both can give a budding entrepreneur heartburn. You wouldn't
start a business without researching its market; don't go after
financing without analyzing your needs -- and your feelings.
Study your financing options like it's an exam you're determined
to get an 'A' on (even if you hated school!) Consult books, publications,
trade associations, personal contacts. Click through as many sections
of Idea Cafe's Financing Your Business section as you can. Get a
really good sense of what's out there and what are the right choices
for your business.
Make sure you don't spend a lot of time pursuing financing options
that have little chance of success just because your business is
in a different stage of development or you require a larger (or
smaller) amount of money than is appropriate for the funder you're
after. Time is money, and frustration costs emotional energy as
well. And you don't want to clutter your credit report with excessive
credit requests that can make you look shaky.
And study yourself. Everybody's a little different when it comes
to money. Analyzing your attitudes toward money now can help you
make better decisions about financing that will speed you along
on the road to success.
