If you ask business owners how they initially financed their businesses, you will find that most met their start-up needs through a patchwork of savings, credit cards, loans from family members and friends, and from trade agreements with vendors or suppliers. Depending on your start-up and growth strategies, consider exhausting your current resources before turning to outside financing.

Here are some options to explore:
* Personal Savings
* Personal Assets
* Friends and Family
* Customers and Strategic Partners
* Trade Accounts
* Retirement Accounts
* Personal Credit Cards
