It's a normal part of doing business. However, managing that debt and keeping it from becoming a serious strain on your business requires effort and skill. If you are a business owner, that effort begins by taking full responsibility for managing your business debt. Neither your broker nor your accountant can do it for you. And failing to act quickly can lead your enterprise to financial oblivion down the road. GET CLEAR ABOUT YOUR DEBT In debt management, as in life, knowledge is power. Checking exactly what your debt load is on a regular basis provides the foundation for taking control of those debts.
