This video series I’m creating could be one of the most life-changing video series you’ve ever watched if you’re in business for yourself. I’ve created seven-figure a year companies in the past – and I’ve also failed in business – like alot. We’re in the position with my newest company where I’m exploring whether or not to seek capital investment.
In my first video I really layed this out – so if you want to understand my journey a bit better and the struggle I have with the idea of business debt or bringing on an investor please go back and watch that video. It’s short and will really give you some valuable context that I think you’ll identify with and I’ll also share a pretty strong case why as a consumer and small business advocate, I feel that I have a moral imperative to bring you along with me in this journey.
There are so many questions about small business loans and quite honestly, there are a lot of sharks out there who are not looking out for your best interest. My hope is that by being very transparent about our journey, you’ll gain some insight and start taking action on your next steps to growing and scaling your business.
Please hit subscribe on my channel and hit the bell. I promise that I will do everything in my power to help you grow your authority and influence. I respect where you are in your journey and I’m committed to serving in any way I can.
Finally, I don’t have all the answers and every business is different – so I’m really relying on you to comment below and let me know your questions about this. I’d absolutely love to dig in and help you grow your business and impact.
So this video is largely based on a book by one of my friends and mentors, Ami Kassar. Ami is the founder of Multifunding and is a regular speaker at Inc events – which is where we originally connected many years ago.
So his book is called The Growth Dilemma – and I believe it should be required reading for anyone toying around with the idea of scaling their company faster by leveraging productive debt.
In my previous video, I talked about my journey as a bootstrapper. So I do want to let you know that you can grow a company with absolutely no debt. I’ve done it before. I also know that having an infusion of capital can allow you to take advantage of opportunities that might otherwise be outside your budget. Those opportunities would be designed to help you gain a return on investment. And we’ll go through some math in this video to help you decide whether you’re ready to hit the gas or keep it on cruise control.
So let’s go back to my original small business loan question…
