When you think about the financiers that power the American economy, you might go to the names that grab the headlines. Fancy investment banks or global commercial banks might race to the top of your mind, and to some degree that’s true. But if 80% of all employment comes from smaller businesses, who is helping them? Who is making the capital available, so that the small business owners’ dreams can be realized, or the big new contract can power the growth of a company from small and stable, to stable and flourishing? The answers might surprise you.

Finding today’s “win-win.”

Times have undoubtedly changed. Lenders are under exponentially larger regulatory pressure in how they lend money. The days of the lender making a decision with his or her signature while you sat in their office are long over. Lending has become impersonal, distant, judgmental and seemingly…as the survey respondents identified…adversarial. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are a few items to seek in a lender to develop a “win-win” relationship in today’s market.

Great by Choice (pt. 3)

You can find the last two posts in the Great by Choice series here:

Fanatic Discipline (20 Mile March)

Empirical Creativity (Fire Bullets, Then Cannonballs)

One of the first books our employees are given on their first day at SLS is “Great by Choice” by Jim Collins and Morten T. Hansen, which looks at why some companies thrive in uncertainty and chaos, and why others don’t. What draws us to this particular book is its focus on quantifiable data to lead you to the conclusions of what made these companies excel in their industries. There are three main points that we will cover in three blog posts, so that we can hopefully give you some insights that will help you become GREAT BY CHOICE. And to that end … let us know when we can assist. We’re more than a commercial lender. We’re your partner in business. Call us at 816.423.8021

    As the warm summer months end I can’t help but look forward to the first snowfall. Some people shudder at the thought of snow. Sure, the extra commute time dodging out of control vehicles, shoveling snow in the subzero temperatures, and the arrival of flu season can make anyone dread the winter months. However, for me and millions of other Americans, the snow season brings our favorite winter activities: skiing and snowboarding. Being from Kansas City it’s hard to fulfill my snow sport passion. The rolling hills and flat lands around the area are ideal for farming, it doesn’t provide much in terms of downhill skiing. Still, I go to the local ski resort every winter trying to squeeze every ounce of excitement out of the small 25-acre hill. Although fun, the local resort provides a mere warm-up for my annual trip out west to enjoy all of what the Rocky Mountain have to offer.

    When disaster strikes, it’s only natural to want to assist in whatever way you can. We have been so encouraged hearing from people wanting to do their part in cleaning up and repairing the communities that have been affected by recent hurricanes. We want to let involved parties know: we’re here to help.

    We can provide equipment financing for the necessary equipment types that are frequently found in commission on disaster relief areas, including grapple trucks, loaders, trailers, reclamation equipment, roll off containers, debris hauling equipment, and construction equipment of all types.
