Do you know Step #1 in buying a business?

Fountainhead 504About Fountainhead, SBA 7(a)Leave a Comment

You can bootstrap many things in a small business, but there’s one thing you cannot do without when buying one: capital. And nine out of ten times, that comes from financing. I’ve known business owners who accomplished this with personal credit cards or short-term “alternative, online small business loans”… all of which had interest rates north of 20% per year. Ridiculous! If you or someone you know is in this situation, then consider our SBA 7(a) loan program as your first choice loan. Rates and terms can’t be beat (especially by credit cards or “alternative, online lenders”), and Fountainhead will … Read More
