If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve most likely heard the saying “It takes money to make money.” And, if you continue to be an entrepreneur, you’ll hear it again and again. Why? Because there is some truth to it.
Now, that being said, having money to invest in your business is a great thing, but not always a necessity. So if you don’t have the cash readily on hand, you need to think twice before accepting outside financing.
