Do any of the following points apply to you?

  • I’m hesitant to approach a bank for financing because I’m afraid the answer will be no…

  • My business is doing fine, but I don’t have the resources to grow…

  • There are times of the year when I stress out because the bills paid out are greater than the revenue coming in…

  • I’m tired of renting space for my business, but I don’t think I can afford my own space…

  • My current bank doesn’t seem to care…

    If one or more of the above apply to you, this is a session you should plan to attend! You’ll learn more about what a bank considers before making a loan and the services available to help grow your business. This will also be a good opportunity to learn about what a business should look for when considering a banking partner!
