You just got more money.
You just got more money.

(And you can have more whenever you want it).
Many small to medium size businesses have a tough time managing cashflow...

If you're like us, accounting is probably verrryyyyy boooorrrrriinnggggg. And annoying. 

But... it's important. Because if you aren't careful and you don't pay close enough attention to the numbers...

CASHFLOW CAN KILL YOUR BUSINESS.
Alternative small business financial services and solutions
So... we went out and found hundreds of financial solutions...
Why? Because money problems are kinda like a nosy neighbor. You never know when they'll show up...

And it's never, ever convenient timing when they do.

But when you have people depending on you and your business... you just gotta deal with it. 

So that's when we realized we wanted financial resilience.

No matter what happened, we would have access to more capital whenever we needed it. 

And we definitely didn't want to rely on the big (slow and bureaucratic) banks for it...
So that's what we got for our companies. 
And that's what we can (probably) get for your business too...
Here are some of the best FINANCIAL solutions we've used in our companies:
Zero fee credit card processing for businesses & reward cash customers
Virtually every business owner we speak with dislikes (for lack of a better word) their current merchant services provider. Ditching your credit card processing fees is one of the fastest ways to instantly add 2-4% MORE profit margin. What's that? You were told that you were paying less than 2-4%? Well, let's check your processing statement because those are super easy to understand, right...?  The merchant services industry is notoriously unethical, so we went and partnered with the most reputable company we've ever found after using 100s of different merchant accounts. For businesses that qualify, they even have a "fee free" processing service that doesn't charge ANY fees to the business. No credit card fees. No PCI or compliance fees. Literally a $0 statement every month. And if for some reason you don't want to reward your cash-paying customers, they have many other plans that will most likely beat what you're currently paying so it's worth taking a look. Give us a shout & we'll put you in touch with them.
Business capital solutions when the big banks won't lend you any money.
Let's get real for a minute. Most small business lenders are predators. That's just the reality of B2B finance. But a countless number of business owners we've spoken with have expressed a need for more capital, but their bank(s) won't lend to them or the only other options they're given are crippling to the business. The reality is,  banks typically only lend out money to people who don't actually need the money... Fortunately,  most businesses don't realize how many alternative lending solutions are currently available to them. Even worse, once they've been rejected by one or two institutions, they think that means no one else will give them the capital they need. And that is definitely, most assuredly, not true. One of the easiest to qualify for and fastest ways to raise capital is through alternative financing. Plus some of these solutions are not technically considered a "loan" so you can pay them back AFTER you've already been paid. Would that be helpful? Give us a shout and we'll connect you with the best sources we've found.
SBA Loans - 7(a) & CDC/504 programs
Loan Amounts: $250,000 – $5,000,000
Loan Terms: 10 – 25 Years
Interest Rates: 6.50% – 8.75%
Time: As Fast As 7 Days
SBA loans are part of a program created by the U.S. Small Business Administration. However, the difference between an SBA and other loans is that it’s a guarantee from banks and certified lenders. This means the SBA doesn’t actually give you money. Rather, they determine guidelines for lenders and guarantee applicants up to 85% of the loan. This way, the lenders remain protected from potential defaults and it allows for them to provide funding for entrepreneurs with very little risk. The 7(a) Loan Program is pretty flexible for your entrepreneurial needs. However, the primary uses include: refinancing existing property, purchase new property, revolving funds, equipment purchases, working capital, and the purchase of real estate. You can receive upwards of $5 million in guaranteed financing and applications are processed through banks, certified lenders, and credit unions. The CDC/504 Loan Program is primarily used for project funding. When your loan is approved, you’ll receive 50% of the money from the bank and 40% of it from a Certified Development Corporation (CDC). In this instance, project funding means fixed assets including: buying equipment, buildings, land, building or renovating new/existing facilities, landscaping, and debt refinancing due to renovations or improvements upwards of $5 million.

A Business-Directed Retirement Account (BDRA) is a deposit account (not a loan) in which a fixed sum of money is given and where your retirement annuities can be withdrawn. Specifically, a BDRA allows you to invest your retirement assets directly into your new business without any penalties of taxable distributions. The BDRA program one of our partners built focuses on providing quality, customizable, retirement funding for entrepreneurs. They provide top quality legal support, 5 year management consultation, custom retirement plan design, access to additional funding, and audit protection guarantee. As an entrepreneur, you may not always have the funds needed to get you off your feet. And you likely won’t want to use all of your retirement funding. They help develop unique solutions for you and can combine a BDRA with other unsecured business finance options. This can help increase your startup capital with zero collateral, manage your risk by starting the business with a hybrid structure, build relationships with the banks to refinance down the road, and start cash rich with a line of credit that has 0% APR. To qualify you must have at least $40,000+ in a retirement account with a previous employer. This includes a 401(k), IRA, and 403(b). If you meet that requirement, you can expect funding anywhere between $20k and $200k. Want our preferred BDRA system and resource?

Equipment financing allows you to fund up to 100% on new or used equipment for your business. This can include tools, appliances, computers, or even vehicles– but there’s plenty more that can be funded using this type of financing. When it comes to equipment loans, there’s little paperwork and you can get easy access to cash since the equipment is the collateral. Businesses today need the best commercial equipment and the most affordable financing available to stay competitive, operate efficiently, and deliver high quality products and services.

Unsecured business finance is a FICO driven program for credit worthy applicants. With unsecured commercial financing, there is no collateral needed. However, a good credit score is required in order to qualify. In comparison to secured loans, unsecured loans are a higher risk for lenders– which means higher interest rates and required credit scores. Applicants are able to choose one guarantor of their choosing if their credit is not high enough. The main two forms of unsecured funding are business credit cards and bank lines of credit. However, you'll want to be careful with how you set everything up to minimize your risk, so just let us know if you'd like our help.

Startup funding is a loan type specifically geared towards helping  finance a business with very little commercial history. Startup funding comes in many shapes and sizes, ranging from business credit cards, personal loans and lines of credit. However, even less traditional lenders like friends or family could constitute as a startup loan if the money were to be put towards a business. The main four are business credit cards, personal loans, lines of credit, and BDRA using your retirement funds. Want our best resources?

Personal loans are finances borrowed from traditional banks, alternative lenders, or credit unions with fixed terms and rates. Much like any other loan, you pay the money back in monthly intervals at a set interest rate. The majority of personal loans are unsecured – meaning there is no collateral involved. We've also seen options where the funds are structured as a revolving line of credit as well. Ideally you'll want to have a score of 680+ and $35000 or more in annual income.

Originally, a revenue-based loan aka "cash advance" was designed to be a lump-sum payment for businesses in exchange for a specific percentage of future credit / debit card sales agreed-upon by both parties. Now, it’s more commonly used to describe an variety of financial options for small businesses. They’re typically characterized by shorter payment terms and smaller payments in comparison to traditional bank loans. However, a "cash advance" can also be used when describing purchasing potential credit card sales receivables as well as short-term business loans. These loans are great for business owners with limited time in business and/or limited collateral. Some lenders are flexible when it comes to your personal credit score as well. These loans are ideal for businesses who have daily sales and are looking for a short term funding solution.

All-in-one business credit solutions tied to your EIN instead of your SSN.
Getting lines of credit for your business can be kind of a pain. The process is confusing and very often disappointing when you find out you have to sign a personal guarantee and have the credit line tied to your personal SSN rather than your company's EIN. We spent years trying to figure out a way around this, but it wasn't until we found this company that we finally figured it out. They've developed a system for steadily and consistently building up your business credit score over time which will give you access to more capital and lines of credit than you ever realized was possible
Other creative & alternative financing sources you can leverage for fast cash.
It's important to understand that you very well might have cash inside of your business that you didn't realize you had. We had an epiphany when we discovered all of the financeable assets we already had inside of our own companies. Beyond real estate, literally anything else you have that has value can most likely be leveraged to pull some cash out of it. Unpaid receivables, inventory, intellectual property, equipment, etc - you can take out loans against any of it (although debt to equity ratios will vary). Reach out if you'd like some ideas on how to get some cash out of your business.
Want access to our internal team of financial & wealth building advisors?
The most important thing you ever build into your business is your team. That usually starts off with employees, then managers, then executives, and then a board of advisors. But the natural progression of business can accelerate dramatically when you focus on building your board first (as long as they're strategically aligned with your goals). While we're pretty dang good at solving problems and finding resources for marketing, systems, money, hiring, and M&A, there's another important type of advisor that can help you with your investments, tax mitigation efforts, insurance strategies, corporate structuring, legal implications, and much more. And even if you already have advisors, one of the most expensive mistakes we've made in the past was not getting a 2nd opinion because it can never hurt to explore a few more options. Reach out if you want access to our personally vetted team of wealth & investment advisors.
