When I started business, no one wanted to lend a dime for it. I was told that banks did not want to know contractors, fishermen or restaurants existed until they had been in business for at least 5 years. I told them I wouldn’t need them in 5 years and have never used a penny of anyone’s eles’s money beyond 30 accounts. I am living prof of labor being superior to capital, but I have never had more than 5 employees paid out of my own pocket. I had them at the 1.5 year mark, but my wife and I decided our family was more important than more capital ;-))
