As you all are probably aware this economic crisis has not only hurt individuals it has also taken a toll on businesses. Especially small businesses. It’s at times like this that I am glad that we longer have our home based business. I just don’t think I could handle both the stress of personal and business money woes. It’s hard enough trying to pay our everyday monthly expenses without having to try to find a way to pay the business’s.
I don’t mean to sound all doom and gloom cause if you have a good head on your shoulders then you and your business can make it out of these bad economic times unscathed. Plus there are companies out there that are more then happy to help you when things look at their worst.
One way to that may help boost your sales is opening merchant accounts so that you can take credit cards as a form of payment. When we did this a few years back we seen a big jump in online orders cause paying with credit is just easier and faster then paying by check or money order.
If you and your business are all ready in a pickle getting a loan maybe the right course of action for you. Look for one that offers no closing cost or other fees, possibly one that has less stringent requirements but a faster approval.
