Hi, what most business owners would do in thei situation is use leverage...borrow to finance growth
Another alternative, of course it to raise capital through equity financing .. sell stock
In this situation, of excellent growth the cost for financing, whether through debt OR equity could very easily be less that the cost of slowing down your growth
With sales doubling every year, a commercial bank should be more than willing to loan operating funds and with a doubling of sales every year (100% growth per year) the cost is today's interest rate environment makes this, quite honestly, a no-brainer ... borrow and 2 to 5 % to finance growth at 100%
OR, again, elect S-corporation status , if you are not already there, and issue stock to new shareholders (btu itf theis were me ... at 100% growth per year, I'd rather borrow the money and keep 100% of the ownership)
Let me knw if you have questons
