Cash flow is the main concern of every small business. With good cash flow, the business is able to settle the current portion of its obligations when they become due, thus allowing for smoother operations.

We are a new business (a year old) and are an LLC. We're semi familiar with the differences of an LLC vs Sole Proprietorship however are still kind of confused on how to handle the paperwork to "pay" myself (as the owner). Any input?

Hey 508dunn and everyone,

Putting up a business these days would always be a risky move since economic crises may always pose as threats to a budding money-making venture. Great thing about today is that we still have the internet for us to learn new things about how to get started despite the recession. One site that helped me is toughbiz .com. It surely will not just teach you how but will also tell you about the common mistakes that businessmen experiences and in that way you are able to not do the same. Hope it helps..^_*

Keep on keeping on...

Research all the business financing tools available. Credit cards, bank loans, invoice factoring, personal loans... there are many options available and, most likely, a combination of them will fit your business perfectly. Like others have said- look for solutions that offer cash flow and, ideally, don't create debt.

I've noticed that a lot of business owners are having trouble finding small business loans.

That's true... but many are also finding alternate sources of capital. I happen to blog on that topic, if you're interested you can read them here:

Smile Business financing

Factoring should be the last option in my opinion. One of the best ways to have some financing is to build your business credit. You do not have to have massive cash flow. The idea is to set it up in a way that you can apply to certain select cash cards like citi business. Ones you get atleast some business credit based solely on your business credit you can build upon that and end up with literally massive business credit. Much like building personal credit without having a 100k/yr job.

I think for any business customer satisfaction is must. For customer satisfaction you have give them better services. Yes i agree one of the major problem of any small business owner is finance. They have limited finance. But if owner spend their money wisely , make a good business plan , choose business according to their interest and i most important factor is passion.

LIVE YOUR BUSINESS WITH PASSION!!
