It’s not easy. You wake up with issues. Problems surround you. You’re out of money. You need to close something. You’re searching for money which evades your bank account. You cannot change your mood. You are not able to communicate distress. Levelheaded is best but your spouse knows. Something is wrong. Where do you go? Who do you call? Is there no one to help.

There is.


This isn’t a self-help article. I am not here to give you the religion of positive thinking. Many promote that religion.

I choose not to subscribe to delusion. It is not helpful. Reality is you do not have money. Most likely you ran out. You are desperate to have it. You need it. You feel you will kill for it.

The answer?


Many think they need to get an investor. When a company is out of money the typical strategy is to raise money. A company on life support needs monetary blood. Often the donor comes in the form of 1) Scoundrel, 2) Future Victim or 3) Institutional Sponsor.

Many experience the Scoundrel.


The Scoundrel is your typical professional investor. They are people who do not file SEC complaints when they lose money. They do not go on blog posts to call you a scam. They are not people to claim victim.

They accept with every dollar invested there is a reality it will be lost.

They are big boys and big girls.

In this fact we find their perspective truth. They are big boys and girls. This typically translates to big assets, big bank accounts and big businesses.

You may be sued by them, but it is always civil. Lawsuits are used to wrestle control, push you out or transfer control.

A Scoundrel is concerned about succeeding. Success is a goal post to obtain. Scoundrels do not involve themselves in matters they do not understand. If you work with a Scoundrel, you find yourself pitted up against a person who intends to take over.

I typically recommend you avoid Scoundrels.


Ahh…the category favorite of those in desperation. These are good people. People who you personally know. They are friends, family, and coworkers. All of them have values, ethics, and morals.

What they don’t have is any experience outside being employed.

When you take money from these people there is only one outcome. 100% success exactly as you said it would happen. Anything else is failure.

We all know life is uncontrollable. We agree there are circumstances beyond control. We understand no one does everything.

These facts are lost when you take a non-sophisticated person’s money. I do not recommend doing anything with a person who has no experience investing. As painful as it may be to pass someone willing to help, I encourage you to disregard them.

When things do not happen the way they should (as nothing ever does)…you end up with complaint, a blog post or a frivolous lawsuit filed.


There is one person who exists to save you. They have defined rules. They go by credit scores and established criteria. When you lack money, you don’t go to people. You go to institutions.

You cannot rip an institution off. An institution will not file a frivolous lawsuit. An institution will not allege fraud if you gave them truthful documents.

You will get no regulator compliant from an institution. Institutions are harder to qualify for but easier to convince.


Each institution has underwriting. Underwriting makes a specific requirement. Each one offers Flash Cash Programs (Up to 25k). They also offer microloan programs which go to about 50k. All banks have Small Business Administration (SBA) sponsored programs.

These programs are good up to 250k if you have no intention to acquire real estate, or something tangible.

They look at your credit mainly. There is raw score (above 700 is best), length of history (10 years is preferred), assets (anything you own), pattern of spending (on your credit score), types of trade lines you have (credit cards, installment loans, mortgage, et cet), length of business (2 years is the magic number) and average daily balances in your bank account (try to stay above 10k).

Of course, tax returns are a must. You need 2 years tax returns. The goal is to simply be profitable 2 out of 3 years. The amount of profit is not significant. You must be profitable (even a dollar).


First let’s be clear. You must have a trade skill. You must do something valuable. If you lack financially, it’s not the end of the world. Every business must offer something of value.

You can be the service or product. What you need is a partner. Someone who owns and shares control in your enterprise. Investors are passive people who don’t have any control.

A person financially strong cannot get a loan from an institution if they have no business to carry on. Obtain a partner who meets the financial metrics but lacks the professional credentials.

In my case I am a certified Master Project Manager (MPM), eligible to conduct project management in every industry from biotechnology to construction. I am valuable and viable.


The SEC uses a prong test. As a former license holder, I had to learn it. This prong test means a person must 1) Exchange Money to a 3rd Party 2) Anticipate Future Profit and 3) Be Completely Third Party Managed (i.e. have no control).

Someone managing finances, owning a company, carrying an official officer position and jointly controlling their money means they are not in a security setting. I recommend them signing on the bank account. They never stop controlling their money. There is no transfer of monies. Sign your money partners onto the bank account always. If it is all their money make them the only signature.

You can have a separate joint account with a nominal balance. You are trying to qualify for a bank loan. You do not need to spend their money.


If they are signing documents along with you, they are not your investor. They are guaranteeing everything with you. A banker is explaining to them the terms of money. You are not explaining the loan. Everyone is pulling their resources together for a tangible business. You both are soliciting money from an institution not a person.

Institutions are financially regulated bodies who are beyond sophistication.

On the loan you will include a line item for your annual salary. The institution will approve it. All you need to do is W2 yourself. Many don’t realize as a business owner you can literally employ yourself.

I produced 110k in 24 hours thinking about how to revive my project management business. I then proceeded to transfer ownership to qualified people. After building the right profile the business was approved. I’m still employed at my former firm. I have a lot of bonuses built in as well. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Who said transferring my ownership was free?

I hope this article helped you. You now have a tool for navigating 100k. Cost? A few minutes of reading.
