When you run a small business, lots of things can go wrong. Customers don't pay. Suppliers don't come through. Contractors don't provide the work on time. These are the realities of life. When these things happen, they're often like a sucker punch to your cash flow, which, for a small business, is their lifeblood. Businesses can go under or experience a major rough patch during these stressful times, sometimes requiring a cash infusion. It's often normal for small business owners to look for someone to blame when these things happen. "It was the supplier's fault," one might say, or "It was all the untrustworthy customer's fault."
