Starting a small business took a lot more out of us than the expected. Even though we had a business plan there was a few things in the first couple of months that came out than were unexpected. We were already at the bottom when it came to the savings that we put in the business. We were used to doing things at our own so we went out and looked for a short term unsecured business loans. The interest may have been higher but we were able to pay back in a short term so it really didn't hurt us at all.
