The average business owner spends 34.5% of their gross revenues on financing. That represents a HUGE cut into profits, and leaving businesses vulnerable to all sorts of risk. But what if your business could be the bank, and collect that 34.5% as revenue instead? Would that make your business more profitable? More competitive? At this workshop, we'll unpack the financial vehicles corporations such as Apple, Disney, Foster Farms, and McDonalds are using to self-finance their business needs. Why use a banker to fund payroll, operations, equipment purchasing, and fund future business growth? Fire your banker, and become your own source of financing!
