Looking for funding means asking yourself lots of questions

We get it.

You’re in a tough place because you need money to grow your company, but you’re scared to visit the Suits with the money because they might reject you.

Who wouldn’t be scared? We’ve all heard the horror stories about lengthy loan applications or swimming with the “sharks”.

Who are the “Suits”?

Any person or group that’s responsible for investing decisions. This includes bankers, angel investors, commercial loan officers, venture capitalists, and yes, even those guys and gals on that famous TV show. We’ll call all of them Suits for simplicity’s sake. And because it’s better than some other things they’ve been called.

It’s frustrating, because it feels like you don’t have any options. And there’s no one who speaks your language to even point you in the right direction.

If you’ve wondered “How the heck am I going to pay for that?” in the last month, the idea of asking for a loan probably didn’t help you feel any better.

The good news is that you don’t have to feel that way ever again.

Discovering and managing your Finance-Ability® will help you feel comfortable and confident about what makes your business valuable. By the numbers, but also in a way that makes sense to you.

Instead of feeling like you’re asking for a favor, or wondering what hoops you’ll have to jump through next, you’ll know your worth. So that you’re ready to talk to any Suit you need to if and when the time comes.

Just want the Finance-Ability® assessment?

Why are we giving away this amazing free tool? Because everyone should know what type of funding fits them best. After all, it’s a hard process – most Suits only give you one shot to qualify for funding – and you want to spend your time growing your business, not spinning your wheels.

How can Finance-Ability® help?

Based on your answers to our free quiz, we’ll show you the strengths and weaknesses in your business, which make up your Finance-Ability®. Then, we’ll show you the best place to look for the money you need for your business in the short term. Lastly, we’ll give you some tips that will improve your chances of getting that funding by making your business a great investment.

When it comes to funding, trustworthy information in plain English is hard to come by.  A lot of the information out there is either written in Suit language (we call it Klingon), or it’s provided by someone who benefits from selling you a specific type of funding. So instead of getting information you can use to make a good decision, you feel even more confused than ever, and you don’t know who to trust.

It’s tempting to just take the first offer that comes along and hope for the best. But that’s not your style: you want a solution that works for your business, and you’re willing to put in the work it takes to find it.

That’s where your Finance-Ability® comes in. It’s a new way of managing your business that helps you understand, build and explain your worth to any potential partner. In language you understand and can be confident using, instead of trying to learn Klingon.

But is it right for ME?

You started your business so that you could have enough money to live comfortably and enough time to enjoy that comfort. Your business is as unique as you are, so you need to partner with someone who understands your goals – both professional and personal.

Finding the “right” partner means more than putting on a tie and faking it, though. You’ve got to understand what you want and what your business is ready for before you spend lots of time looking for bucks in all the wrong places.

We know that no financing solution is right for everyone. So instead of a “one size fits all approach”, we offer you education about what your options are, and the tools to help you make the most of whichever option you choose.

We’re independent and unaffiliated with any financial institution, so our goal – our only goal – is to teach you about your options and help you choose the funding solution that work best for you and your business.

With three simple steps, you can save yourself time and ulcers when it comes to looking for funding AND growing your worth:

Assess your Finance-Ability so you understand your strengths and weaknesses

Build the tools you need to navigate your adventure and know your worth

Stop looking for $ in all the wrong places – eliminate the frustration and stress!

The bonus? Not only will these three steps help you find the money you need to grow your business right now, but they’ll help you make finance your ally instead of something that holds you hostage.

Imagine feeling knowledgeable, calm and confident about your finances – whether you’re signing the lease on your first office, taking on new employees or negotiating with a Suit.

Assessing your Finance-Ability® is the first step!
