How do you really minimize your business debts? Well, one of the most effective answers is proper business management. If you can manage the operations of your business well, you won’t have to borrow money until you become buried in debts. That’s why I always say this to people—before you start something risky, make sure you have enough knowledge to begin with. Do not start a business without knowing anything about business management. Learn about it first so you won’t have to deal with a serious financial crisis in the future.
Before you start a business, you need to learn the art of saving first. Save money until you have enough amount to put up your dream business. Avoid using borrowed money to start a business because it will only get worse if you don’t know how to manage your operations effectively and efficiently. You must aim to use cash from your own pockets to finance your business. It’s way better than to pay for the principal and interest of your loans using your profit. Although there are exemptions to this, as a businessman, you should think about getting more cash inflows than cash outflows.
As long as your business can stand using your own money, avoid borrowing. Put getting loans at the bottom of the list in case you need financial help to support your business. The idea of prioritizing borrowing when you are in a financial crisis will only trigger you to get more and more loans until you cannot pay them anymore. There are a lot of alternatives to borrowing. You can find your own investors or partners, you can finance your business by selling equities, or you can sell some of your assets so you would have funds to use for expansion or whatever business purpose it is. Again, do not prioritize borrowing.
