You start a business that sells a product or service where the income is derived from paying customers, sure borrow money if you need to and believe it’s worth the risk.
Pretend being a trader while not knowing anything about trading or have any history of successful trading, then no, borrowing money to get started is one of the dumbest things a person can do. It would be irresponsible of me to state otherwise.
I’ve been around long enough to see how this story plays out. I’ve seen it a thousand times and it ends the same way. every. single. time.
I’m not trying to win brownie points here, just trying to help people avoid making poor decisions or avoid exacerbating already bad situations.
