  • How can I creatively and effectively market my business on the cheap?
  • How can I sell high-margin goods or services to get back in the black?
  • How do I make sure my personal assets aren't vulnerable to my business' creditors?

    In these tough times of falling demand, impatient creditors, tight credit, and fierce competition, staying in the black is a constant battle, requiring smart moves and decisiveness under pressure.
