If you crack open most entrepreneurship textbooks, you’ll find that they talk a lot about how entrepreneurs finance their businesses. Because these books are targeted at students in courses that focus on the creation of high potential businesses, they spend a lot of time discussing venture capital, angel investing, and other sources of external equity capital. As a result, they don’t describe how most entrepreneurs finance their businesses.

In this day and age the prospect of debt to achieve external financing is scary. When it come to startup, I have tried to set the goal of investment from revenue--bootstrapping is the name for it--with some small personal debt that can easily be paid down with the same revenue.
