Startup business loans are the foundation upon which entrepreneurship is built. This loan is the gateway to a dream and the boat to freedom for many. It must be managed wisely however, or the boat could sink and the dream could shatter.
The Budget Puzzle
Budgeting isn’t easy. It is like putting a puzzle together without all the pieces. You have to guess at what the missing pieces may look like, which is difficult at best. There are two approaches to budgeting. One is to stick to the budget like it is the law, and the other is to use it as a guide, a tool that is fluid and ever changing as needed. A happy medium is probably best, as there has to be some wiggle room for dealing with uncertainty, but wiggling to far outside of the boundaries set by the budget could be disastrous. If you do not have experience with making budgets, it might be a good idea to hire someone who does.
The Refi Question
Should you refinance your startup business loans after a certain point? Maybe. If refinancing means a better interest rate, better terms, or better cash flow, it could be something to look into for the future. It is not a given that refinancing will be an option, but if upon review of the financials it appears that it could be helpful, it should definitely be considered.
The “what ifs” can drive you crazy. What if you need more money? What if you cannot pay operating expenses on what you are making and the startup funds are gone. Startup funds are not meant for this anyway after a certain point. Be prepared with a line of credit or small business working capital loan. These can be used to cover operating expenses, take advantage of bulk discounts, and help keep up with demand so the business can grow.
