Do not apply for a business loan or line of credit JUST to build a business credit profile. Some of these opportunities are short-term with high interest, or may upon application, pull your personal credit costing you points and so on.
While there are some opportunities that never require your personal exposure, until your business has its own, developed credit profile, your personal guarantee or a hard pull on your personal credit, may be necessary. After that, your business should have enough reported that your personal exposure is no longer necessary.
Just like with any debt exposure decision, be strategic and only borrow what you are projected to be able to repay.
