At a local Meet-Up (www.meetup.com), we had an interesting discussion about mistakes we’ve made in business. For example: Whether to pay outright or borrow for stock/equipment.
The example one business gave was paying outright for equipment that would be sign-written to advertise another business (he organized advertising for businesses). The issue was that spending $10,000 on the equipment took all the spare money the business owner had, while the payment for the advert was monthly over a multi-year contract.
Hindsight showed that it would have been better to get a loan for the equipment, then add his mark-up for the advert and service on top of the monthly re-payments, and he would still have his $10,000 to use for cashflow and marketing.
