Now, due to the nature of business lines of credit, it is not recommended to use the entire balance at once to try to solve a larger debt problem. Business lines of credit have compounded interest so the longer the balance is held, the higher the overall cost for the credit becomes.

I Secured A Line of Credit, Now What?

Now you have the freedom to do what needs to be done to handle operational expenses without a worry. Are you a restaurant owner or own a retail store? How often do sales vary with unexpected factors? Inclement weather alone can reduce sales by over 75% and normal $100,000 weekends can become $10,000. With that line of credit that you just secured you know you will literally make it through the rain. Inventory for the next week will be covered and you are able to fight another day. It is not suggested to spend your whole balance at once because every small business owner must become acclimated with their new holdback percentage (holdback percentage- debt to income ratio). If you are a new small business owner and have new credit then this time is crucial to make the right decisions and be responsible to collect as much positive data on your credit report right from the start.

Every entrepreneur knows the saying cash is king. Cash is what allows you to open your doors, pay for the bills to operate, and even to provide improvements to drive an increase in sales. No small business owner should be stacking their pennies or staring at their ceiling all night thinking what have they done. There are answers and ways to initiate improvement and the only way to improve is to act. Research, find the most cost effective options that fit the schedule of your income, and keep strict use in mind. With the line of credit, focusing on growth is easy because you’re taking the focus off of trying to figure out where to get the funds. All businesses, in order to survive, must budget for payroll, marketing expenses, improvements and repairs. As long as you keep your mind open and inspect all options, positive opportunities will present themselves. A business line of credit provides the financial peace of mind so that you can solely focus on improving your business.
