Pay Day?

By Cynthia E. Griffin

When it comes to money matters, homebased entrepreneurs constantly face tough decisions. Brad Snyder (right), founder of Strategic Advantage Inc., is a prime example.

"[The money is] reinvested into the business, and on occasion, I still infuse some of my own money into it," says Snyder, who expects his management and technology consulting firm to break even this year.
