Just a funding bridge away

with Shay Wheat, CEO, Grace & Ease Productions
with Leo Kanell, Founder and CEO of 7 Figures Funding

Welcome back to another electrifying session of Creating Powerful Impact, where I, Shay Wheat, along with trailblazers like Leo Kanell from Seven Figures Funding, unravel the mysteries of business financing.
Listen in as Leo shares his journey from a young entrepreneur to an innovator in the funding space. Our discussion uncovers the hurdles that small businesses and startups encounter when traditional banking falls short, and how Leo’s groundbreaking solutions and educational resources are empowering business owners to flourish even without a silver spoon or impeccable credit.
In this enlightening conversation, we explore the world of building business credit and how savvy financial strategies can set you up for success.
I get into the nitty-gritty with Leo on how paying down debt can skyrocket credit scores and open doors to programs like the 0% interest card stacks. These financial tools are more than just numbers; they’re the lifeline for entrepreneurs investing in growth.
We celebrate the victories of leveraging good debt, and I offer practical tips on nurturing business credit and fostering banking relationships that could lead to your next big funding breakthrough.
Bringing this powerful session to a close, we delve into the nuances of financial strategies that are akin to a nurturing relationship. Imagine setting up a weekly “money date” to ensure your business’s financial health is on track.
We discuss how simple actions like timely bill payments, strategic credit score management, and responsible bank account handling can dramatically affect your funding opportunities.
And for those on the lookout for innovative funding strategies, like the SBA Bolt Loan program, we discuss how these can be game-changers for businesses seeking to soar to new heights.
Tune in for this riveting session filled with insights, success stories, and essential tips that could redefine the way you approach business funding.
