"Banking for Growth" (May) hit so close to home that I was absolutely compelled to copy it and send it to the officer who is currently in charge of our account at our bank in Atlanta. Although they do a good job of servicing our cash management needs (lock boxes, etc.), they seem to have very little stomach for the kind of aggressive financing needed by a rapidly growing company.

It is comforting to know, however, that they'll be begging to lend us money as soon as we are big enough that we don't really need it any more.
