Thanks for the helpful links. I checked them out and like you liked the article on debt. I would never advise anyone to take on debt – unless, there is a dire need to do so. If you want to start a business, but don’t have the capital you really won’t have a choice but to loan the money for it. Just make sure you have done extensive research and study for your business and the loan you are taking before you go for it.
