Grab the Money You Need to Launch Your Business

Startup capital is everywhere – but you can’t get it if you don’t know where to look.

It’s much easier than you think to find the startup cash you need to get your business going.

No outdated sources, fictitious grants, bizarre ideas, or “free money” schemes.  Just solid financing methods that people use every day to launch businesses.


“From the opening anecdote to the no-nonsense ideas to the empowering close, 27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business is a must-read for all entrepreneurs. Rather than selling the latest fund-generating memes, Mr. Douros gives the straight talk on reliable – and exciting – ways to raise capital while inspiring business owners to take brave steps and conduct operations in the ways that work. This is much more than a money book; it’s a business-as-life-as-business book.”

Dear Future Business Owner,

Does this sound familiar?

“If only I had the chance to start my business, I’d finally reach my full potential.”

“If only I could pursue my passion, I’d feel good about waking up and going to work.”

“If only I worked for myself, I’d be able to give my family the life they deserve.”

If you’re trying to realize the dream of owning your own business, these are thoughts that go through your head every day.  You read news stories about small businesses being bought up by big companies for millions – sometimes billions – of dollars, and you think, “If only I had a tiny bit of that money, I could start a great business.”

The truth is, it’s not that difficult to get the money you need when you know your options.

27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business shows you those options so you can make sense of the small business financing world.

If you’re starting your own business, you’re looking for more out life.  Maybe you want:

  • Financial independence – Know that YOU determine your income, not someone else.
  • To be your own boss – Answer to no one but yourself and make the best decisions without getting someone else’s approval.
  • Wealth-building and long-term security – Create an income that can grow and build a business with real value.

Maybe you’ve been putting off your dream because you need money to get going and you don’t know where to look.

Every day, entrepreneurs start successful businesses.  How do they get the money?

Simply put, they go where the money is.  People WANT to give you money – it’s how they grow their investments.  If you have the qualities of a successful business owner, people WANT to meet you and invest in your future.

“This is THE best time to start a business…  The last two businesses I started were both in recessions.  And anybody who wants to start a business – it may be harder to do – but this is THE #1 best time.”

Get the cash you need with proven financing strategies.

While others sit around thinking of “what could have been,” successful entrepreneurs are using these methods to start businesses every day.

Over 200+ pages, 27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business goes into detail about 27 different ways you can get your hands on startup and expansion capital.  For example…

Did you know that angel investors are responsible for as much as 10 times the amount of capital invested by venture capitalists?  (And they do so without asking for your credit score.)

Know anything about business incubators?  You should.  They can significantly cut down your startup expenses by sharing small business infrastructure—like offices, utilities, warehouses, laboratories, and even employees.  With a good business incubator, you might not even need to look for outside funding.

Did you know that if you’re buying an existing business, you can use the assets of THAT business to secure an asset-based loan that you can use to buy that very business?  Sounds crazy, but it’s not a gimmick.  Lenders love fixed assets, and you can leverage the equity in those assets to get a business loan.

Those are just a few of the things you’ll learn in the 200+ pages of detailed, specific information and strategies for launching your dream.

“The next 15 to 20 years, the money’s going to be made owning and running businesses.  If I have any advice, it’s look for a small business where you can be a principal.  If you think you are so smart, go prove it.  Don’t go to your rocking chair at 65 not knowing.”

Richard Heckmann

Millionaire entrepreneur and former Deputy Administrator for the SBA

Discover the financing methods that most people don’t even know about.

Everyone knows that banks make loans.  Some people have a vague (but usually inaccurate) idea of how angel investing and venture capitalism work.  The SBA – one of the largest contributors to small business success – is often misunderstood by the public.  But those aren’t the only places you can get money.

A lot of people are afraid to take the first step because they think their potential money sources are limited.  They’re afraid they’re wasting their time on unrealistic goals.  They couldn’t be more wrong.

The fact is, lenders WANT you to start a successful business.  Investors WANT you to show them a good investment opportunity.  The government – from Washington, D.C. to your local city hall – wants you to grow, thrive, and build wealth.

The system is designed to make you successful.

27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business covers the four main types of financing:

  • Equity Financing – Use other people’s money to start your business without debt.
  • Debt Financing – Maintain full control of your company and take advantage of programs designed to help small businesses succeed.
  • Self-Financing – Invest in yourself. (There are more ways than you think.)
  • Karma Financing – Turn those good deeds into cash.

With each of the 27 methods you’ll get specific details, like:

  • How it works
  • Who it works for
  • Advantages and disadvantages
  • Where to get it

You’ll learn how:

A peer-to-peer social loan can help you get a low-interest loan quickly—even if your credit score is not so good.  This is a loan from regular people, not banks and bureaucracies.  And it’s just as easy as creating a Facebook profile.

Trade credit can help you avoid loans all together by letting you sell your goods before you pay for them.

And more than 2 dozen other ways you can cut startup costs, get startup capital, and launch bigger and better than you thought possible.

Show friends, family, and business partners that you’re the real deal.

A lot of people TALK about starting a business.  Few people do.  Why?  Most people are afraid to move from TALKING about their business to actually DOING it.  They’re worried that their friends and family will think they’re nuts, delusional, or making a bad decision.

Is it any coincidence that the people who want to talk you OUT of starting a business are always the ones who never HAVE?

When people ask you “Where are you going to get the money?” do you have an answer?

You wouldn’t…

  • Pack your bags and head to the airport without knowing where you’re going.
  • Try to hike the Appalachian Trail without a map.
  • Tell your kid to go find the nearest school and hope for the best.
  • Make the biggest, most life-changing decision of your life (launching your own business) without knowing where you’re going to get the money to finance it.

Or worse, what if you got on the WRONG plane, had the WRONG map, or sent your kid to the WRONG school?  It could be devastating.

Don’t let bad information and wrong ideas ruin your plans.  27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business demystifies the world of business capital.  It clarifies your options and helps you avoid damaging mistakes.

For example, did you know that the IRS can charge your family member income tax if they make you a loan—even if the loan was interest free?  Avoidable mistakes like this carry major consequences.  Be informed to protect yourself and your family.

Most people don’t really understand government-guaranteed programs.  27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business details the SBA’s, USDA’s, and EDA’s most popular business financing programs so you can easily understand them.

Gain the confidence to quit a demoralizing job and design a more rewarding life.

Sometimes the kick-start you need is: confidence.  When your choices seem limited, it’s hard to feel confident about taking the leap and launching your business.

But once you realize and understand the many financing options available, you’ll gain all the confidence you need to push forward.

With 27 Killer Ways to Finance Your Business, you WILL know more about business financing than practically every hopeful entrepreneur out there.  I promise.

The most important question you have to answer.

I’m D.L. Douros.  I’ve created business plans and other documents for companies as small as a barber shop that needed a $10,000 loan to large, publicly-traded holding companies that make multi-million dollar investments.  Businesses come in all sizes, but the principles of investment, risk-reduction, and financial planning are basically the same, regardless of the size of the company.

Whenever I talk to a hopeful small business entrepreneur, one of the first questions I ask is “Who’s going to read this business plan?” I’m often met by a blank stare, followed by the first thing that comes to mind – bank, VC, maybe an angel investor.  Entrepreneurs are so caught up in the details of launching their business that they frequently forget to answer the most basic question: “Where are you going to get the money to start your business?”

I want you to know that when you’re first planning your ideas, it’s okay if you don’t know how you’re going to finance them.  Worrying about money is a sure way to stifle creativity and lose momentum in the early, exciting days of business planning.

But once you’ve made a real commitment to launch your business, you MUST have a plan to finance it.  And a back-up plan.  And a back-up back-up plan.

Once you have a plan, starting your business is simply a matter of executing the steps one-by-one.  If one financing source doesn’t work out, you move on to your second source.  And your third, and fourth.  If you truly believe in what you’re doing and you know your business will benefit you and anyone who invests in you, there is no reason to limit your options.

“Whether you’re looking to get an SBA loan to grow your own business or to buy another business, you have to do your homework – NOW more than ever. You have to have that detailed plan in place.”

Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done.  People are doing it every day.

When Margot Fraser started the sandal company Birkenstock USA, she couldn’t get credit on her own.  Her friends agreed to co-sign for a $6,000 loan, which they turned into $125,000 in sales in the first year – despite offering trade credit to their retailers.  Forty years later, the sandal that everyone thought was a fad is a $50 million company.

Ramona Pierson, founder of the educational software company SynapticMash, raised $3 million from venture capitalists and in less than 2 years sold the company for $10 million – before it had even become profitable.

Josh James and John Pestana went from designing web sites to raising $150,000 in first-round financing for their web analytics company, Omniture.  After several more rounds of VC investment, they eventually sold the company to Adobe for a mind-blowing $1.8 billion.

In 2004, famed political blogger Arianna Huffington was a failed California gubernatorial candidate.  Having raised nearly $1 million through online crowdfunding for her election campaign, she understood the power of the internet.  She and business partner Ken Lerer raised capital from friends to start the Huffington Post, then turned to venture capitalists to push their site to the next level.  Now, with hundreds of celebrity guest bloggers, Huffington Post is powerful enough to affect national elections and global events.

All I ask is that you try it out and give it a genuine look.  You have nothing to lose by trying.
