As a business owner, you face enough risk making day-to-day decisions regarding everything from resource optimization to where to hold the staff anniversary party. However, these risks and complexities can seem like a proverbial walk in the park if you choose the wrong business lender.
Here are 3 painful and costly consequences that await you if you make this major mistake.
They’ll move numbers around, tell convoluted stories about variable interest rates and the government, and earnestly get you to focus on what you’ll be able to do with the funds (e.g. “just think of what your restaurant will be able to do with a brand new freezer and oven!”).
If you fall victim to these types of lenders, then one thing is absolutely certain: you’ll end up paying far more than you expect, and potentially, more than you can afford.
However, if you choose the wrong business lender, then it’s a foregone conclusion that you’ll get trapped by a maze of terms and conditions — and none of them (even by accident) will be in your favor.
There will be obstacles and penalties to things that you can’t even imagine, but will not able to get around with pulling out your checkbook or credit card.
Unfortunately, you’ll typically face these and much other time consuming, tedious, costly and risky scenarios if you choose the wrong business lending partner.
After all, they’re not concerned about your efficiency. They’re focused on their profit.
