Business Development

My father and mother were both small business entrepreneurs.  As I was growing up, I saw them struggle in different seasons of business.  Sometimes the local bank is unable, or unwilling, to make the necessary loan in times of need. Businesses are helped in Dwight Clark Youth Jersey achieving their goals by using a commercial loan broker Dwight Clark Kids Jersey who finds the right lender for a commercial client.  I truly want to do what is in the best the interest of client I represent.

My business has allowed me to work in 48 states, helping businesses as a consultant.  I have degrees from the University of Texas and Colorado Christian University, but my real degree is from the University of the Real World.
The vast majority of the companies we finance move on to, or back to, traditional bank financing without our help within several years. I consider it a success for the client I represent.
