Funding

Lets talk about funding.
Do you know how I fund the new businesses coming?From our www.kahwin.net fund. Its makes us proud but do you know how we fund kahwin.net?

Its a big tragic history actually.We used my husband's money. He and his friend took a loan from a local bank to start their own business. Hubby was in the business for 1 year before he focus 100% to our baby www.kahwin.net.

In my opinion, taking loans is much more better when you want to start a business rather than funding it using your saving. Whay I say so?It is because, in case the business didnt go well, you still have money to breath in and out and to pay the installment of the loan. What if you use your saving money and most of it gone?Unless, you $ is big, and you only fund less than 10% of your saving, that I think should be ok.

Ok, lets talk what choice do we have out there?
