This is a compilation of everything that occurred in our office for the week. It’s an opportunity for you to see what we learned.
We’re pretty good at what we do but we’re far from perfect. You’ll learn that our clients and funding providers are far from perfect too. Hopefully we’ll all learn some lessons on how to do business better.
We’re looking for “Clients for Life.” If you’re looking for a trustworthy, hard working Capital and Cash Flow Specialist perhaps we can do business. With 33+ years of financial services experience (November 1976 to present) we may be uniquely qualified to serve you and those whom you choose to refer.
Please remember that we work on a Priority-Expedited basis and a Non-Priority- Get To You When We Can basis. Not everyone understands our business model and that’s okay. After 33+ years in financial services we can’t please everyone – We do the best that we can for committed paying clients because they’re the ones who keep us in business.
I’ve sat through tens of thousands of presentations since we started in business July 1,1999. Most are made by shrewed entrepreneurs in search of funding for their new business concepts.
I am continually shocked by the failure of most of these presentations to communicate effectively and persuasively.
The problem is that nobody knows how to tell a story. And what’s worse, nobodyknows that they don’t know how to tell a story.
The overwhelming majority of business presentations merely serve to convey data, not to persuade.
You need to be able to master the art of telling a story in a clear, convincing manner.
Investors have been burned badly in the past several years. There’s nothing worse than receiving a 250-page “novel” with the funding request buried on page 57. We don’t have time to sift and sort through hundreds of pages of data and to give dozens of hours of our precious time away.
If you’d like to be “coached” on how to present powerfully and effectively you should retain Cash Flow Specialists, Inc. as a Priority – Expedited Client.
We’ve helped hundreds obtain funding, are you next?
This is a special recording and offer How To Fund Your Viable Project:
This is part of an email that I sent to an “oil man” who has been shopping for a loan for at least two years:
We went down the “free road” (Non-Priority) with you about two years ago, Walter.
I paid my assistants a small fortune and all the while you kept “shopping.” I absolutely refuse to do that again.
Doing upfront work to gain leverage with a potential client is a risky proposition. With so much staff time and so many resources needed we could end up spending all our revenue and profit from several closed transactions to compensate for the costs we’d incur with you.
We don’t want to be in a business where clients want free work. Providing so much upfront work and slashing success fees is not a sustainable way to operate. Too much upfront free work squanders our resources and time.
We’re running a Special Promotion until December 31, 2010:
We’ve had good success in funding several in these difficult times.
We’ve found that those whom we meet with face-to-face for a couple of hours, that really get plugged into our websites, newsletters, articles, and webinars have a much higher funding success rate than those who try to “go on the cheap” skip the process. don’t read the newsletters and, in general, try to do things their way.
If you’re serious about getting funded you’ll come to Concord CA and spend two hours with me.
For only $2,500 you’ll receive two hours of coaching for you and your teamhere in Concord CA on how to properly fund your viable project or idea, athorough review and written critique of your Executive Summary, Bio’s, Detailed Use of Funds, 5-Year Pro-Forma, and Exit Strategy, and a one-year prepaid subscription to http:joetufo.com/blog our 4,000+ page and growing private subscription website which archives our newsletters. This is a $4,664 value if you buy the services separately.
In addition, if you choose to become a Priority Client we’ll credit your entire $2,500 investment plus the costs of your travel to Concord CA towards our Priority Expedited Client Fee.
We’ve been successful in funding dozens of business people who struck out using mainstream funding sources. Block a couple of days; fly or drive to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, bring a cashier’s check or wire funds direct to our Bank of America corporate account.
If you need more than two hours we’ll charge only $500 an hour instead of our normal $1,000 an hour and we’ll still credit it all towards our Priority Expedited Client Fee.
If you need me to come to you for two hours you’ll need to add $10,000 for travel expenses and time away from Concord CA. If you need more than two hours we’ll charge only $500 an hour instead of our normal $1,000 an hour and we’ll still credit it all towards our Priority Expedited Client Fee.
This is what I wrote a prospective client Tuesday September 28, 2010:
We’ve funded dozens in the past year and hundreds in the past 10+ years. We have 5,333 double opt-in subscribers to our newsletters. You can subscribe for free at http://www.workingcapitalfast.com
We have found that when clients pay a fee they are committed. We don’t take anyone on unless we’re reasonably confident that we can get them funded. There is no question that Mr. B has a great project and will create badly needed jobs that will bless thousands.
I do business all over the world. I give clients the option of visiting with me face-to-face: some do, some don’t. The serious pay the fee, the “shoppers” don’t. Many choose to do business again and again and refer others.
Rabo Bank is an excellent bank. I’m confident that they can fund Mr. B.
This came in from Brian whom I have known for several years:
CSB has just gotten the OK to do Self-storage units as SBA, they can go to 80-85%. That is a hot niche.
Lot of other products are opening up. It is an exciting time for me to be in commercial-banks are still sidelined but things are opening up. The opportunities are huge. Be aggressive and go after the business and utilize my help in placing the deal via the program finder and you can OWN your marketplace.
This came in from my friend Jack, a San Francisco based asset lender, whom I have known for a few years:
Small-cap to Lower Middle-market Companies
Deal Size of $1M to $30M for Senior Debt / $1M to $10M for Cash-flow Term Loans
We welcome inquiries and return results quickly.

Hello! Long time subscriber to your newsletter. Good info!
If we wanted to market the need for funds from investors (about $375K for 30 days, escrow only, fully refundable), what would we need to do with you to accomplish that?
Thanks! Talk to you soon ..
This is one of the most dependable Traders available:

Don’t Tell Me/Show Me
I will give you exactly what you give me.
Chris will educate you.
I have personally known the founder of this program for four years. Recently, Ron, a Canadian developer client of ours, was vetted. He is participating now. Ron told me that for 15 years he tried with 10 to 12 broker groups and got nowhere.
When it comes to trading too many times we get caught up in the old Joker Broker World of total fakes, scams and frauds. I have never understood why anyone would spin their wheels, trying to put down a trade, that will never pay, let alone ever get traded (Dream Brokers).When you are ready to enter into a real trade with realistic profits posted then give us a call and find out more.
If you’ve been looking for a Real Opportunity to participate in a proven program this may be the answer for you.
With a trial trade of $5,000 to $25,000 your monthly yield is 4% which is double the annual interest rate of most U.S.A. CD programs. That’s right, you can earn a yield in one month that doubles the annual rate of return of most CD’s.

Dale and I were out walking last night. We’ve been friends for more than 33 years. We walk a few miles every night and talk. We’ve been doing that for a few years to stay fit and to share time. I told Dale that this may be the best tool that we have in our “toolboxes” to help people self-liquidate loans in a fraction of the time. It’s also a great tool to use for providing for loved ones, to make a charitable foundation “evergreen,” to fund a college education, to fuel a start-up, and the list goes on.
I taught insurance for 19 years. I was chairman of education for the local life underwriter’s association for 13 years and ran hundreds of agent through classes annually. Our 22-year old daughter, jenny, asked me about life insurance for she and our son-in-law over the weekend. I told her about Banker’s Life & Casualty’s insurance founder – billionaire, John D. McArthur’s famous quote, “We sell insurance, we don’t buy it.”
Did you know that if you place just $100,000 in this small cap trade and allow it to grow for five years that you will have in excess of $5m ($5,153,632) assuming that the trade continues and that you re-invest on a quarterly basis? That will fund anything you can dream.
Imagine if you started with $1,000,000…
