Description

Small and mid-sized businesses are the engine of our economy. They’re how people turn their passions into their livelihood -- truly the “American Dream”. But owning a business comes with a whole host of questions: How do I get started? What type of business loan is right for me? How do Federal Reserve policies affect my business? When should I create a succession plan?
That’s where Cadence Bank can help. On “In Good Companies” we put together our extensive knowledge to guide you through the lifecycle of a business, from start to sale. Hosted by Executive Vice President Patrick Pacheco, who has over 25 years of experience in trust and asset management. We’ll hear from real businesses and subject matter experts to tackle the big issues: how to craft a bulletproof business plan, secure funding, grow responsibly and exit successfully. If you have a business, or are thinking of starting one, this podcast will give you the strategies to help you navigate opportunities and the financial and managerial tools to put you “In Good Companies”.

Starting a new business is one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments in a person’s life. The stakes are high: depending on your situation, your whole net worth could be on the line. So how can you make sure that you’re in a position to succeed? On this episode of In Good Companies, we’re talking business beginnings—the things you can do to prepare for what’s ahead. Guests Alan Thomes (Managing Director of SBA Banking, Cadence Bank) and Allan Adams (State Director, University of Georgia SBDC) join us to discuss bulletproof business plans, funding options, and developing relationships with key stakeholders. Together, we’ll uncover key resources, like expert consultation (for free!) from the Small Business Development Center and low-risk loans through the Small Business Administration. You’ll learn who you need to talk to and how to avoid the pitfalls of overexcited entrepreneurship. Business isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon—and nobody rolls out of bed and runs a marathon without training. Preparation is essential and the more prepared you are, the more confidence you’ll have as issues arise. So let us guide you to the starting line, and when the bell rings and you open your doors, you’ll be ready.       Highlights: The dangers of overexcited entrepreneurship (2:07) Doing your homework (5:41) How the SBDC helps entrepreneurs (7:10) Crafting a business plan (11:09) The 5 C’s of Credit (12:11) How a solid business plan can open doors (14:19) Funding options (15:22) Introduction to the SBA and 7a Loans (18:24) Why you need to create a relationship with your lender (22:51) Think of your bank as a partner (24:43) Links: Cadence Bank Website Cadence Bank Twitter Cadence Bank LinkedIn Cadence Bank – SBA Loans Small Business Administration Website SBDC (Small Business Development Center) Website University of Georgia SBDC Website University of Georgia SBDC Twitter Allan Adams LinkedIn  Alan Thomes LinkedIn  Feedback:If you have questions about the show or topics you'd like discussed in future episodes, email our producer, andrew@lowerstreet.co
