A will back, I wrote an article on friend of my who took out a few Small Business Loans to help in stablizing his business. Today, I got a call from him telling me that it was the best thing that he did. I asked him why and he was quick to tell me of all the great things that he has done.
The first thing was he had the capital to make it through the tough times that were ahead of him. The bad news was that some of his competitors were not as fortunate as him. However, that actually worked to his advantage. He was able to buy up some of his competitors business and gain some of the clients from the other competitors that just shut down all together.
In a nutshell, it sounded like the decisions that he made months ago have helped him to secure his position for the next few years to come.
