Tim’s Advice For Local Business Owners
Business owners in St. Louis are facing the same challenges as business owners across the country. These include inflation, rising interest rates, labor shortages, and an evolving workforce (remote work, flexible hours, loyalty).
My current advice to business owners is to hang onto your capital. Don’t pull too much money out of your company–as much as possible, reinvest earnings in your business and save for a rainy day.
Why Choose CNB?
CNB is a great place to do your business banking. We operate without the highs and lows or drama in other markets. Local businesses can thrive from doing business locally and working with like-minded people who share the same work ethic and mindset as you. Build long-term relationships with your suppliers, customers, bank, and professional services providers. Those relationships will support you throughout the life of your business.
