SUCCESS Stories – If you’ve followed my company, Mighty Ventures, for a while, you know that Business Growth Blueprint is one of the ways we help build massive success with entrepreneurs and small businesses.

Scott Jordan, All Credit Lending Solutions
For Scott Jordan of All Credit Lending Solutions, (ACLS) becoming a mega-success story is all about focus and a strong foundation. ACLS provides financial expertise and non-bank / private lender funding to small businesses seeking financing of $50,000 or more. Scott has almost single handedly built his business by providing a variety of financing options, with special focus on equipment leasing, lines of credit, accounts receivable and purchase order financing and other B2B needs.
When clients first come to Scott, they are often panicked – they have been denied capital from traditional banks and don’t know where to turn for funding. Scott educates clients on what funding sources look for and why lenders come in a variety of shapes and sizes – with many different criteria for lending. Not having the knowledge or relationships needed, the client in question faces losing opportunities for profit – or even sustainability. With ACLS’s expertise and support, the client gains access to multiple non-bank sources of funding and is provided the vital analytical piece of the puzzle. Add to this equation that Scott has built relationships with over 50 non-bank lenders, and has hit the ground running with the timely concept of utilizing creative and little known finance strategies and direct access to multiple lending sources to solve a borrower’s problem of being denied financing for their business. With Mighty Ventures’ mentorship, ACLS has created a new focus, moving from banks and the Mortgage Backed Security Marketplace, to asset-based lenders and other non-traditional sources of capital, many of which are only now coming back into the market after the long recession.
ACLS is in a market-leading position, similar to where Scott was in his career when he was part of a voice over the internet (VOIP) startup in 1997, which raised $265 Million in a successful IPO in 1999. ACLS has the ability to dissolve a client’s fear and replace it with knowledge and experience by preparing a package that will lead a borrower to receive approval for funding.
Scott is 100% committed to the success of ACLS – and has achieved much of that success with his own effort and expertise. With Christine Comaford’s direction he has started to assemble a talented team to focus, identify and overcome certain hurdles in his path. With the Business Growth Blueprint Program, he has created much needed increased focus and clarity. Christine Comaford has begun to take ACLS through steps needed to create solid building blocks and business development. Scott has already identified many of his company’s roadblocks and begun to blow through them, “My ego was not my amigo. It compelled me to think that I could do it on my own — without someone else’s help. I now have more focus – more clarity on what is important in growing and developing my vision into a reality.”
He added that marketing now has a clear, solid role in ACLS’s model for success, “Module 1 of Mighty Ventures’ Business Growth Blueprint was great, and the marketing module helped to provide some clarity and focus on the marketing efforts we are now instituting.”
With the guidance of Mighty Ventures, ACLS will soon add a membership site with a “Freemium” model, featuring three levels – Free, Paid, and Premium – this will enabling small business owners to connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs. The site will enable members to gain the knowledge in approaching non-bank lenders themselves, or they can utilize ACLS’s unique process in obtaining the financing they need. With the launch of the new website, www.YourBusinessLoanNow.com, Scott looks forward to taking his company into its next evolution. Say’s Jordan, `Because of our unique creative strategies and access to multiple lenders we can provide the best solution for the customized needs of each borrower. There are very few companies that have access to multiple types of loans, leases, etc. Most companies do a single type of loan, and if it fits their box, they take in the file – if not, they reject it, RARELY providing additional options for the borrower to consider. At ACLS, we believe we are on the cutting edge of providing a new model (multiple lending choices combined with financial expertise) for providing the optimal capital structure to business owners. We are excited to take our unique business model nationally to help business owners get the capital they need while we are in this uncertain economic cycle.”
With Mighty Ventures’ guidance, the future looks bright. Scott is now ready to find a pay-for-performance sales agent to help handle the screening of inbound leads – a key player who can support ACLS as it moves forward. He is also looking for lenders who have new programs who need marketing of those new products. The new website, www.YourBusinessLoanNow.com, will provide information helpful to borrowers, such as their free downloadable information product: 9 Secrets Your Banker Never Told You. ACLS will also create a portal for submitting loan scenarios and forms every borrower will need when submitting to a lender for funding.
