Over the past few years, many business owners have been unable to get financing for their growing companies. The banks’ lending criteria became rigorous; commercial lending was lower than pre-2008. Fewer active angel investors existed. However, the market has taken a turn. Banks are now loosening up their purse strings. Angels and venture capitalists are getting more aggressive. They’re all seeking the “good deals.” In 2012, banks and angel investors gave 5.9 million small businesses throughout the United States over $228 billion in capital[1]. Capital formation increased significantly in 2013 and is expected to be more favorable in 2014.Banks are seeking companies (and owners) with collateral, cash reserves, good credit, and an “invest-able” business plan. Angels and venture capitalists are seeking companies with strong leadership and scalability. If you don’t explain to the bank how you’ll grow the company (or turn the $1 they give you into $10), then you’ll never raise a dime. No financing package is complete without an “investable” business plan. That’s where I come in.ChereeMy name is Cheree Warrick. My company writes business plans that banks and angel investors fund. My book, Creating Business Plans that Actually Get Financed, is based on my own experience as an entrepreneur.Here’s my story My family owns a small business. Mom’s the CEO. Three years after starting the company, she decided to approach our local bank for a business loan. “Since you have the Masters degree,” she said to me, “you write the business plan.” While I had written general business plans, I had never written a plan that would be considered for capital. I wasn’t sure how to do it but I knew failure was not an option. My family’s livelihood depended on it. I had to learn how to write with so much persuasion that the bank would beg to lend money to us.

Before submitting my plan to the bank, I showed it to a mentor who had 40 years experience raising capital and running companies. He gave me some tweaks to make and the bank said it was one of the best business plans they’d ever read.

Over the next year or so, I became passionate about understanding why some entrepreneurs have money thrown at them from every different direction while others can barely raise two nickels. What did these super successful people know? What did bankers know but they weren’t telling us? I wrote a book and began to consult with other companies so I may help other entrepreneurs overcome this challenge.

In fact, my information has been praised by Barbara Corcoran of ABC’s hit TV Show, Shark Tank. She says “My experience on Shark Tank has taught me how to spot the startups most likely to succeed and get funding. The strategies taught by Cheree offer entrepreneurs the best shot at receiving capital from investors like me.”
