About this title


How do you finance a business in a tough economy? Leave the bank out of it!

SPANK THE BANK, THE Guide to Alternative Business Financing This step-by-step guide helps startups and smaller companies locate and tap into non-bank financing. The author clearly and succinctly lays out each type of funding, how to qualify, necessary documentation, the amounts typically available and time frames to secure the money. This book gives the reader real-world examples of businesses that successfully accessed funding through various sources, including but not limited to: Factoring Purchase order financing Merchant cash advance Equipment leasing options Asset-based loans Microloans Commercial loans Peer-to-peer lending Crowdfunding IRA investing

Written by a rising star in the financial consulting world, the author is a frequent lecturer on the subject. Karlene Sinclair-Robinson has personally helped dozens of smaller companies land and fulfill both public and private contracts by showing them how to access the necessary capital to staff, operate and ultimately deliver their companies products and services. The author demystifies technical financial terms for the fledgling entrepreneur.

In times of tight credit when many businesses simply cannot successfully access funding from traditional sources, SPANK THE BANK leads the way to alternatives that can provide the edge for many new enterprises struggling to launch, and for many established firms to keep their doors open. This book provides the do's and don'ts so vital to business survival in tough times.

From the Author:

Over the years, I have counseled many startups and seasoned business owners at various levels, and unfortunately, I see the same pattern. Start-ups are running scared not knowing where to go or how to get there, while waiting too long to seek assistance. It is the same for well-established businesses. These businesses are operating with poor balance sheets, negative cash flows and operating on the proverbial "robbing from Peter to pay Paul" mentality. Then, there are those who are solely operating out of "Greed". This is creating so many felons, you read correctly, as more and more business owners are stealing from their businesses, families and others to make things work, or chasing after opportunities they should not be chasing. This is unfortunate.

The purpose of this book is to expand the reader's mind on how to take your business through the journey of survival or growth in today's tight lending arena. Having access to capital is vital to everyone. You are affected by negative cash flow and financing issues whether you are a startup or a business doing $20 million or more annually. Realizing the issues affecting you is important, while creating and executing on solutions that can keep you from financial ruin, is crucial.

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today.
