What lead you to the financial services industry?
I have always had an interest in finance. In 1996, I passed my Series 62 exam which paved the way to more qualification exams that broadened my areas of practice in the corporate security field. During this time period, I was exposed to alternative funding sources and how they can help a large segment of entrepreneurs and business owners who don’t qualify for traditional options. In the past, there were only a few companies that were taking the risk for small businesses and entrepreneurs. I knew I had found my passion in finance and Platinum Rapid Funding ensures that daily.
What role does your business play in the financial industry?
We provide viable funding options for business owners and entrepreneurs who could not obtain funding from conventional funding sources such as banks and credit houses. These businesses need support and we are willing to take that risk for them.
Why, in your opinion, is it important for businesses to seek help from alternative finance companies like Platinum Rapid Funding?
It’s a beneficial option for business because we have different funding options. Platinum is an alternative funding source, therefore, we offer the flexibility that allows these businesses to obtain funding according to their capacities to repay. We work with each business to assess their strengths and weakness to come up with a package that is within their means to pay. Aside from that, we offer valuable consulting options to help clients make the most out of the capital that they get.
What are some different funding options that you offer at Platinum Rapid Funding?
We offer a wide variety of funding options and merchant cash advances for small businesses in virtually all industries. These include merchant ACH funding or credit card splits with variable funding amounts up to $5,000,000, among others.
What is one financial tip you would like to offer our readers?
Before you think about where to get the funding you need, have a plan in place. A business needs dedication and hours of hard work. You won’t get to where you want to be if you don’t have a concrete picture of your goals. Being passionate about your business also helps because it makes all that hard work easier to endure. Be in a place where you are always motivated, passionate, and enthusiastic. It will make you the best role model for your team; being motivated and driven is a crucial component for success.
If you weren’t in the financial services industry, what do you see yourself doing?
If I had not been in the financial sector, I would still be involved in a business related industry. Business is my strong suit and passion so it’s hard to imagine myself thriving in any other industry. I do believe I’d still be an in an entrepreneur because it gives me that decision-making, leadership, and motivating position I thrive off of.
