Existing businesses should continually evaluate both cash flow and expected capital needs. Many businesses run into timing issues when customers don't pay quickly, but bills keep arriving on time. Anticipation and preparation for these challenges will help your business run more smoothly.
Most fledgling entrepreneurs consider raising capital from only four sources:
- Personal funds - savings or home equity
- Outside investors - family, friends or angel/venture capital investors
- Business loans - SBA guarantee or secured bank loans
- Credit - credit cards or business purchases on credit

Leadership and Management
Check out our articles section to find some tried and true leadership and management strategies. Above all, it important to know the difference between leadership and management, and to understand the necessity of both. A business owner who sees himself or herself as merely a business manager might handle day-to-day affairs with ease but likely lacks the focus, vision, and supportiveness necessary to prompt company growth. A leader, on the other hand, looks confidently toward the future direction of the business. A leader communicates well with others and maximizes their individual potential by empowering them to achieve greatness. A great leader must also have managerial skills as well, however. Without the ability to effectively direct others and enforce existing protocol, a leader cannot be successful. In order to head a successful business, it is important to understand these similarities and differences and to incorporate both roles into your company strategy.
