Hello Business Owner,    

     A Finance Performance Package can boost revenue and accelerate growth.

     I have 30 years in business funding, customer payments, and customer financing. 
With those three cylinders firing together tuned as one precision finance motor, s
businesses increase revenue 30%  —without spending money

      Everything changed because of finance tech  security, service, point-of-sale tools.
The new leaders eliminate resellers after several multi-billion dollar mergers. 


Finance Performance Inspection:

Business Funding   —quick SBA business loans, new bank term loans, short-term working capital
1.  How much money could you use for expansion, operations, or refinancing?

Customer Payments   —reliable point-of-sale business tools eliminate resellers and free up time
         2.  How long have you been with your payments processor - over a year? 

Customer Financing   —easy point-of-sale competitive advantage boosts revenue
3.  What percent of your sales is from customer financing?

SOURCE:     Small Business Reports   .. 


    Finance is the engine of a business. New point-of-sale tools make it run better for efficient growth.

Efficient Growth

Efficient growth is ethical, sustainable long-term,
and organic—without wasting time or money. 

 It's good for people, businesses, and communities.
Small businesses boost efficient growth three ways.

Business Funding
Customer Payments
Customer Financing


Who can you trust for business funding, customer payments, and customer financing?
click here for the Special Report

     Once upon a time, local bankers provided small business loans and credit card processing ─and customer financing for larger companies.  Your local banker probably knew you.

     Today ─since 2008─ local banks mainly provide business checking and business credit cards. And they are resellers for payment card processors that now offer competitive direct accounts to merchants. Local branches continue to shrink in favor of online banking. And it doesn't matter if your banker knows you.

     Banks decline roughly 75% of small business loan applications under a million dollars because they are not profitable, while most small businesses are applying for amounts from $25,000 to $250,000.

     Yet, 45% of small businesses plan to finance their expansion in the second half of 2019.  -  Pepperdine University - Graziadio Business School - July 2019

     Only about 20% of small business owners trust Internet search for business finance. They tend to be younger businesses with owners that have time to search online (or respond to email offers), and then decide or guess which website to trust, and apply on a web form for smaller funding amounts.

     Fortunately for small businesses that plan to expand, the local banker is being replaced by the business finance agency for business funding, customer payments, and customer financing.  A business finance agency is equal parts personal relationship and finance tools with trusted proven sources based on experience. 

     Business finance agencies are new and small, and they may not be found easily onlne by searching because they do not want to be crushed by crowds of unqualified applicants.  So they can be difficult to find.


What is Responsible Capitalism?

The prevailing concept of corporate purpose needs an update.

     A business does not exist purely to make a financial profit.  Nor does it exist solely for the benefit of its executives or shareholders.  Responsible Capitalism recognises the synergistic value of addressing the needs of the entire ecosystem in which the business operates. 

     Henry Ford said, “The business has to make a profit, otherwise it will die. But if you try to run a business solely on profit, then it will also die because it will not have any reason to be."

      Milton Friedman said, "The only corporate social responsibility a company has is to maximize its profits.”   -1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

     Responsible capitalism is a necessary remedy for the kind of corporate overreach that has led to nationalist, populist, and anti-globalist movements. Without a more earnest effort by major companies and investors to broaden prosperity and quality of life there will be more backlash against free enterprise, more authoritarian governments, more arbitrary regulation of companies and markets, and ever more stringent restrictions on free trade.



NOTE: About ten days after the article above was published, the Business Roundtable —a US coalition of 181 powerful CEOs— announced that CEOs need to rethink the meaning of shareholder value.  Maximizing profit for shareholders, long seen as a corporation's main function, can no longer be the primary goal.

The Business Roundtable called on investors to also "support companies that build long-term value by investing in their employees and communities."

Corporations, the executives wrote, should have a broader group of stakeholders including customers, employees, suppliers, and communities, as well as a long view of benefit for shareholders.

Quick SBA Business Loans

Why take out a SBA business loan?

It’s tough to beat the low cost rates and long repayment terms of a working capital SBA loan. However, the traditional process of applying directly at a bank can be quite cumbersome and often results in a 'no'. We changed that. We make it easy for you to apply for a working capital SBA loan and our online marketplace helps get you to a 'yes' because we match your business with the lender most likely to fund your loan. You can use the funds in a variety of ways:

  • Purchase equipment
  • Increase inventory
  • Add marketing programs
  • Operating expenses
  • Hire additional staff
  • Refinance high-interest debt, saving you hundreds or even thousands per month

Consolidate or Refinance

Why Refinance with a SBA loan?

Refinancing existing debt with a low-cost SBA consolidation loan is an important step to take if you want to expand and save big. Large or frequent payments can make it difficult to run day-to-day business operations. Additional funds may be used for working capital to help your business expand.

SBA debt consolidation loans can be used to refinance:

  • Merchant Cash Advances
  • Short-term Business Loans
  • High Interest Funding
  • Daily or Weekly Payment Loans
  • Business Credit Cards

Pre-qualify Without Impacting your Credit

The rent replacement option with minimal down payment, offered by our preferred SBA lending banks, lets you keep more of your cash to invest in growing your business.

We become what we think about

Think about what you want, not what you don't want

Success comes to those who give more than they receive

Those who think it is permissible to tell white lies soon grow colorblind

You’ll never succeed beyond your wildest dreams unless you have some wild dreams

Do more than is required of you

Find yourself by losing yourself in service to your fellow man, your country and your God

No one was ever honored for what they received, only for what they gave

To thine own self be true. Be optimistic.

What the superior person seeks is in himself, what the smaller person seeks is in others

By the work one knows the worker

What’s the most effective use of my time right now?

See yourself the way you want to become, not as you are

Just trying is a noisy way of not doing something

If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advancement

My how people are different since I’ve changed

The most important force I have is what I say to myself and believe

Wisdom is a combination of truth and love

If honesty didn’t exist it likely would be invented as one of the best ways of becoming wealthy

Expect the best

A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner

Learn to see things as they really are, not as we think they are

High achievement always takes place in a framework of high expectations

No authority is higher than reality

Relentless positive repetitive self-talk changes our self image

The greatest strength one can have is intentional motivation

It’s not just what you know but what you do that counts

Never never never quit!  Change, but don't quit.

What if?
