Survival Mode

It is common for businesses in survival mode to find themselves struggling to pay bills and accumulating large debts due to poor cash flow and finance management. Business owners are working long hours with little to no reward and the lack of money coming in to the business may result in the need to provide further funding through their personal finances.
