The government and big business keep saying how they want to help us small businesses.
They offer us loans, credit facilities, training, investment etc.
This is not helping us.
What would help is if they paid up front for our services.
Instead of asking for extended credit.
Or should that be "demanding" extensive credit.
And then taking so long to pay. Sometimes not paying at all.
Many a small business has hit the wall because of credit not paid on time.
Small Businesses have been wiped out by lack of payment.
Cash Flow is the single most important aspect of any business.
Big or small.
The big businesses have huge resources should someone err in payment.
Not so a small business. It's the owner's money invested in the business.
One no-payment and the brown stuff hits the fan.
What if everybody paid up front for what we want?
Including government and big business.
An investment in a house is one thing. But the latest shiny model 4x4 on credit?
Because your competition has one?
Maybe they can afford one because they don't pay their creditors?
Better to save and buy a second hand vehicle until a new one can be afforded.
Always better to pay cash.
The whole world economy would be in a better position if countries paid up front.
There should be money in the kitty. We pay our taxes on time, don't we?
No need for loans.
Some countries can't even pay back the huge loans they have been given.
To help them?
What chance does a new small business have?
Or even an old established one.
How many businesses do we hear of who have had to shut their doors because a few customers haven't paid?
Not just government and big businesses either.
Many have lost everything because of credit.
So please, government and big business, we need your help.
Not for Credit. Loans or overdrafts.
Help us to be of service to you, by paying us up front.
As for small businesses owners, if you can't afford to give credit, find customers who are willing to support you by paying up front. They are out there.
Bigger is not always better. It is a lot more expensive though.
In fact, it could cost you everything.
Has anyone noticed that the richest companies in the world get paid up front?
Amazon, Google, Facebook etc, etc. Ad Nauseum.
Want something from them? Pay and they deliver - instantly.
Now, that's something to think about.
