Latest Testimonials for the Ultimate Financing Guide / Operation Veteran Empowerment 2016
For Real Business Success, It is the Owner That Must First Grow
In the “real world” of business, it is neither new revenue additions nor support financing (all necessary ingredients for sure) that will create enterprise success. Rather, either the owner has in place, develops, and/or acquires the necessary knowledge for best business practices and financial acumen, adverse consequences will inevitably follow.
Having the requisite knowledge to properly run an enterprise, is much like photography. If you don’t have it and correctly focused all you’ll ever get is a negative
Without that knowledge or acumen in place, all the business development on the planet, even accompany financing, will not evade the eventual problems, costly detours, potholes, and possible discontinuance.

I entered the military after graduating from West Point with a BS in Economics, and then after five years of service, I left the military and earned a Master’s in Business Administration while working at a Fortune 50 company. On top of my military and academic background, I had more than 25 years’ experience as a business executive, and honestly, I still felt woefully unprepared for many of the issues around financing the purchase or growth of a business. I had plenty experience running businesses. Business development, no problem. Operations, got it. Leading people, love it. Proposal writing, sure. Bank loans? Venture capital? Angel investors? Hard money? Mezzanine financing? Factoring? No idea! Sure, I had heard of those terms. I vaguely remember them being discuss briefly in some of my MBA classes more than 15 years ago. But before I signed documents that put everything I owned or would own in the future up as collateral, I needed to completely understand. Thankfully, I found the Ultimate Financing Guide by Woody Wollesen. It provided whole new insights into the simple fact of how much I did not know. And it gave me the information in real world terms… the pros, the cons, and the “gotchas” for all the financing options.
Based on my experience, the Ultimate Financing Guide is not only an invaluable resource and tool that should part of every entrepreneur/business owner inventory, but it provides a pathway to reach out for much more. It really is “what one does not know” that becomes critical factor in achieving success.
