Working Capital for Small Business needs to be organized whenever a company has evolved on a shoestring and the owner has “patched” their business capitalization needs together using anything they can get their hands on.
In saying this we also need to respect that this happens more often out of necessity than choice … but it happens every day and it will keep happening!
FIRST: My hat is off to these entrepeneurs! They are the true spirit and driver of our national economy and when I get to meet them I often times sit in awe of them as they tell me how they ‘put it together.’
