Hi @gboye1
Financing a business is really one of the neuralgic points when we set out to enter the business world.
The five proposals you mention represent a certain possibility of raising the funds for that initial capital, I particularly consider the sale of an asset to be quite effective in directing those funds into the new investment.

Have a great day!

Greetings friend, the correct financing of the business is vital, basically it will determine its start up and later the payment of the financing must be covered by the profits, so loans with high interest rates can be detrimental. Any of the options you have mentioned is possible, I think that choosing the best one will depend on the type of business and the entrepreneur.
