Chapter 10: The Owner's Responsibilities... > Dealing with Bankers, Lawyers, and O...

Dealing with Bankers, Lawyers, and Other Outsiders

In the first two parts of this book, we discuss the loans that bankers make, the entities that lawyers initiate, the government agencies that interact with entrepreneurs, and the financial statements that accountants generate. But we haven’t discussed the people behind all those activities.

This section is intended to help you understand the outsiders you must deal with, with the intention of helping you successfully manage the relationships that evolve with them.

Bankers

Ask the typical small-business owner what she thinks about bankers, and you’ll usually get a reaction somewhere between a roll of the eyes and a hair-tearing tantrum. As a rule, bankers get a bad rap from the small-business community, especially since the banking problems of the 2008 financial crisis.
