In fact, 82% of businesses who have closed their doors have cited poor cash flow as the cause.

Of course, not having enough cash in the bank is stressful for any startup founder, but a lack of capital will also affect your ability to pay for payroll, expenses…


raising funds from investor, seed funding

I frequently get asked by new founders” How Do You Raise Seed Funding from Friends and Family”? Getting seed funding from friends, family friends, and just plain family is incredibly common for companies just getting started. However, I know how awkward it can feel to approach these family members and friends and pitch your idea. One of the most important things is to share your enthusiasm for the company or product.
