Working With Your Banker
Banks are in the business of lending money. Loans to small business owners constitute a significant part of most bank investments. Business owners should realize that their banker wants to work with them and will go to great lengths in helping them work through their problems. However, business owners cannot wait until they are "going down for the third time" and expect to receive quick and thorough assistance. A relationship between a business owner and a banker must be established to identify small problems and tackle them before they get out of control.
