I was surprised to read in @INCMagazine’s Inc. 500 that 22% of CEOs cobbled funds from credit cards. #business

I really enjoy Inc Magazine and the issue that arrived in mid August, highlighting America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, was no exception. It’s a fantastic issue with enough information, broken down in a plethora of ways, to motivate you to work smarter, push harder and achieve your dreams. If these 500 companies can thrive in “a decade of turmoil,” there’s hope for all of us to do so in better times.

Many intriguing facts are included and I was surprised that 22% of the Inc 500 CEOs listed credit cards as one of their source funds – more than bank loans and almost as much as funding from Angel investors (23%). I wonder how much the credit crisis, and challenges for SMBs to get bank loans, played in these numbers.

I also enjoyed reading about the top Women-owned businesses – click through for the full issue.
