Starting a business is not the end, it’s a beginning of a journey. Once you hang your shingle, you embark upon a life doing what you are passionate about as your own boss. And hopefully that life sets you up to live the last of your days in comfort. What you already have may be able to help get you to that place.
Are you someone who has been working for years and is now looking to change careers? Do you bring with you retirement or savings from a previous job? Maybe you are young, inexperienced, but you have a trust fund. Maybe you are diligent and have a nice savings built up. Whatever the case, your personal financial situation could help you in more ways than one when it comes to starting a business. First, you can use your savings or retirement to get started. However, there may be a better option. You could hang on to it and look at your business financing options. It is always easier to get a small business loan when you have some funds of your own.
If you own a home, a car, a boat, a vacation home, a time share, land, jewelry, or any other asset that has some value, it may be able to help you. You can sell things that you are willing to sell to help you get your business started, but if you would like to keep them, you can use them as collateral for a secured business loan. Secured loans typically have better terms and rates than unsecured loans, and you can use the loan to finance your business.
Family and Friends
Get your loved ones in on the deal. This doesn’t come without its drawbacks, but nothing does. If you have family or friends that have the entrepreneurial spirit, and some funds, they may be more than willing to travel the road to business ownership with you.
