As if we didn’t know it, the New York Times wrote today,

“Banks struggling to recover from multibillion-dollar losses on real estate are curtailing loans to American businesses, depriving even healthy companies of money for expansion and hiring.”

Yep, tough times. We all are well aware of the fact that everyone’s getting more conservative including customers, vendors and financiers, and that puts a pinch on our businesses.

That’s why it’s more important than ever to make sure you’re doing everything possible to manager your business credit and cash flow.

Along these lines, tomorrow at 2p Eastern (11a Pacific), I’m moderating a Wells Fargo Small Business Webcast that will be attended by thousand of existing and start-up business owners who want to ensure that they’re covering all the bases when it comes to strengthening their business credit and perfecting their cash flow strategies.

The webcast is free and will feature a panel discussion with leading financial industry insiders and business owners. The Wells Fargo Small Business Webcast Sound Credit Practices for Your Business provides the definitive overview of what you need to know, why you need to know it, and specific strategies you can put to work right away no matter what the stage of your business is or what the standing of your business credit may be.
