Typically, it’s better if the money you need to run your business can be generated from operating cash flow. But, unfortunately, that’s not always possible. When you need business financing do you know which type will best position you to succeed? Jerome Jones will help entrepreneurs and those considering launching a business get some answers to this key question.

As part of that process, Jerome will also help you find answers to the following questions:
1. How to forecast if you’ll be able to qualify for a loan?
2. What do you do if you are deemed non-bankable?
3. How to determine how much do you really need?
4. Do banks prefer certain business types?
5. Should you consider crowdfunding or social lending sources?

There are many financing methods available to fund your business. The key is to find the right fit for your business type, stage and need.
