“Begin with the end in mind” is amazing and timeless advice, and it applies to just about anything you can think of…including getting a business loan. If you don’t think it all the way through you’ll end up with a loan that doesn’t fit what you need, even though there’s a good chance you’ll still get the loan. Not a good place to be. My guest today helps medical and dental practices with loans and their businesses and has some solid advice for us.
