Before You Take Out a Loan, Slow Down!

Slow Down

If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Cash flow pressure can be very intense, and we all run into unexpected problems that impact our finances, but when that happens the most important thing to do is to slow down, says Ami Kassar, author of The Growth Dilemma. The more anxious you are, the more likely you are to make a mistake, and a bad loan isn’t just a small thing; it can ruin your business.
