Need Advice, Headed for Credit Problems

I am a frustrated established business owner trying desperately to keep pace with a competitive market.  I`m currently sustaining my business expenses with my personal credit cards, and I have been doing so for quite some time.  I have successfully maxed out each of my personal credit cards.  Because of this situation, I am trying to get a loan in an effort to pay off all my personal credit cards and then, hopefully, be able to establish a business line of credit.I believe that by paying off my personal credit card balances I will take the noose of the neck of my business. With a business line of credit, I will be able to allow my business an opportunity to stand on its own two feet. What options are available to me in the small business loans area?

    My suggestion would be to establish a strong businesss credit score for your company. That way you can get a line of credit without worrying about your personal credit score.

    apply for a D&B number right is a good way to start building your business profile.  you can then get a loan and credit cards only under your business name w.o a personal guarantee.  this is assuming you already have an EIN - which in itself can allow you to have a bank account under the business.
