The Dollars Dating Game How Outdoor Companies Find and Maintain a Credit Companion Today

Recorded, On Demand


Outdoor companies have not been immune to the credit crunch. Although outdoor companies are determined to grow their businesses, they often have difficulty accessing the capital they need to facilitate the type of growth they desire. What are the options for credit and lending sources in the “new economy” and how can you tap into them? Learn about what credit companions are available, the courtship process, potential deal-breakers for your credit companion, how to maintain a strong relationship with your credit companion and how to recognize if it’s time to move on (it’s not you, it’s me).
