    When you're running your own small business, it can be a pretty challenging experience.

    Most small businesses fail within the first few years because of a variety of issues.

-------------------------------------

Even though entrepreneurship is on the rise, not enough people do their research before registering for their LLC. Without a strong financial plan, it’s easy for a business to fall into debt. If you’re in this position, know that it’s possible to get your business debts into good standing again. In order to make things happen, consider the following four tips.

Create Payment Plans

Talk to your lenders. Find out if there are ways to negotiate various payments. Furthermore, if you can create a feasible payment plan, find out if that’s an option.

Most lenders are willing to work with people when they see there is a genuine effort to pay off the debt in a timely fashion. Don’t be too prideful to call the lenders in order to work something out.

Develop Additional Streams of Income

Whether it’s in your business or in your personal life, always maintain multiple streams of income. If you solely rely on one stream and that stream suffers, your entire business suffers.

Instead, it’s time to get creative with new income streams so that you can pay off the debt as soon as possible. If you own a hair salon, find vendors who are willing to sell their related products in your shop. Take a commission from what they’re able to sell. If you own a small boutique, host different events and charge an entrance fee.

Implement a Strong Accounts Receivable Department

Many businesses get into trouble because they haven’t received payments from various clients. In order to keep track of payments and stay on top of what people still owe you, it’s a good idea to implement efficient accounts receivable management for your departments. If you need to hire people to cover this department, it’s worth it.

other valuable tips:

Create an Emergency Savings Account

Even though you are steadily working to pay off your debt, make sure you have a savings account. It’s too easy for people to get caught up in paying off the debt without making sure they have a financial cushion. Set aside $1,000 to cover any potential emergency situations. The last thing you’d want to do is end up further in the hole when you’re trying to climb out.

As you work toward crossing these debts off of your payment checklist, know that discouragement might settle in. However, don’t fall prey to it. If you remain consistent, relentless and determined, the debt will be a thing of the past. Plus, you’ll be wiser, smarter and more financially astute as you move forward.
