    Working Capital

    Faithful1 Newbie
      Does anyone have any information that can help me save my business? I've been in business for eight months now, and things are very tough for me. I tried to get some financial help, but I can't find anything. Although I have no choice but to give up, I just want to try one more thing; to knock one more door to see if there is any hope at all. The fight to save my business is more than a financial loss. It is a financial, a physical, and an emotional investments and I just want to fight until the end!

            Hey, I hear you. I have been in business for 18 years, and I'm hitting the bottom as well. A couple of bad business decisions, and I'm almost sunk. If you find any very high risk backers, let me know. I could use a cushion to get me thru this extremely slow period. Hang in there, as I will, and save that business.

                  Yes. I think you should seriously consider doing a PESTLE and SWOT on your business. This will give you some great insight into what needs to be done to effectively compete and sustain in your market.


                  This will also help you draft up loan proposals, as a matter of fact, many creditors these days demand it. Regardless, these analysis methods are more for you than them. Use them!

                    I know what you are going through especially in these time where money has dried up from banks and everwhere. I can say I am in the same boat as your are business is very slow and the bills and expenses are there to pay. Hope you will get some capitalt to hold you over and to save your business. I know the sweat and tears that goes into to starting a business. Good Luck!

                      I also understand how you feel. I am also looking for working capital. People are telling me not to give up and hit as many people as you can. More you try, more chances you get.

                        Don't know that much about running a restaurant. But, I do watch Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares every once in a while. I notice that the consistent advice for all the restaurants they help is: Do something in your neighborhood that no one else is offering.


                        Can you change you menu? If so, in the mean time, reduce costs to the bare necessities and try to promote a food that no one else is doing.


                        Just my thoughts
