It Takes Money to Make Money

“It takes money to make money” is an old American business adage that dates back to the 1850’s. Nearly two centuries later, the sentiment is as true today as it was then.


A perfect example of this is when a business closes a major deal or lands a new client. That business will need capital to produce goods or services before getting paid for the deal. There are 4 main areas where businesses spend money to make money:

1. Procure raw materials to make what’s already been sold,
2. Acquire additional space for production, warehousing, and office workers,
3. Hire additional employees and make payroll, and
4. To promote new marketing campaigns for ensuing business

Many businesses choose to grow very slowly and cautiously to pay for these new-business expenses through savings. Others throw caution-to-the-wind and borrow money, hoping to make enough profit to make the risk worth the effort.
There has to be a middle ground solution financing opportunity for companies who are low on savings or unable to borrow, and there is, invoice factoring. Invoice factoring is the process of selling some or all of your accounts receivables for cash. Because invoice factoring does not incur debt, there are no monthly payments or debt schedule.
