Every entrepreneur strives to achieve the same goal…business growth. As wonderful as reaching this goal is, it can become overwhelming when your business becomes limited in growth because of financial restrictions. This is when your business should look into business funding or some sort of working capital solution.
When you open a business, the startup expenses usually come out-of-pocket. But as the business thrives, using your bank account to fund the business is no longer realistic. It is crucial that you identify when your business has grown and needs funding.
At the beginning of the growth phase of your business, cash flow becomes restricted. As a business owner, cash is king, and therefore must be properly managed. Business cycles and seasonal fluctuations can result in negative cash flow issues if the business is busier during certain parts of the year.
Business funding can assist you in properly managing your cash flow to promote growth and expansion. Some examples of expansion projects that could lead your business into cash flow restrictions are: needing additional business locations, renovating your existing office space, advertising and marketing. It is important to seek cash flow funding when expanding your business, to keep from having negative balance sheets.
Some business owners believe that requesting cash flow funding means that you have to apply the money immediately to your new endeavors, but that is not always the case. Some businesses may receive cash flow funding as a cushion for business risks.
Having a ‘cash cushion’ can help your company prepare for any unexpected expenses for opportunities. Business opportunities come in all shapes and sizes, such as bargain shopping or new business ventures. The cash cushion can help you shop for inventory or equipment that is discounted and a great buy.
