Bring out your debt!  We've talked a lot about funding options for owners of mid sized companies but we haven't covered debt yet.  Well, here you go.  A detailed conversation with Ian Larkin, founder and Managing Partner of Maranon Capital.  Ian describes why you should look at debt in a business like a parfait sundae (seriously, he does!) and what all those layers mean to you as an owner.  He talks about the aversion most business owners have toward debt and why they might want to change their minds a little.  Then at the end we kind of ramble on about things that have nothing to do with debt, private equity or fancy deserts.
