Why is this the case? Most small businesses are owner-dependent, which means if something were to happen to the owner, the business would practically crumble. The other thing is that small businesses are often built upon traditional business models that don’t cushion them during tough times. Local Investment Opportunities With small businesses struggling to secure loans, investors can take advantage of this financial gap by financing these businesses at an interest. Mind you, we’re not talking about loaning people with poor credit or exposing yourself to high-risk situations. We’re only after great deals that have higher growth potential and low risks. These businesses can include specialists who need expensive equipment to perfect their crafts. Nonetheless, you need to create a win-win situation where the borrower saves money on interests and gets quality equipment while guaranteeing your security. The more successful a borrower is, the lower your risks and the more transactions you can pull off together Links and Resources David’s YouTube Channel David’s Website David’s Book: Invest Local David’s LinkedIn Connect With Sean: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100060279543976 LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/leveraged-life/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sean_adams103/ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0i91Q-fFy70LkaFxvfnGpg For more videos and resources, visit leveraged-life.com.
