Mark J. Kane is a successful entrepreneur, author, speaker and small business owner. His first foray into business was after spending 17 years in the investment banking industry. His first company was a nationwide direct sales organization. He personally recruited, trained and developed over 1,000 sales reps in the United States and within 6 months he personally produced over $3 million in sales.
In the late ‘90’s, Mr. Kane created what became the 350th most visited web site on the Internet (behind USA Today and in front of Oprah Winfrey). This led to the creation of a software company with experienced search engine specialists, high-quality website designers, advanced developers and programmers, and Internet marketing consultants.
At that time Mr. Kane didn’t even know that business credit existed. As a small business owner, he personally guaranteed everything because he thought that’s the way it was done. He even prided himself on how well he did it while growing his Internet marketing business with a $5,000 line of credit on his American Express and playing the 30-day float. Over time, he was regularly spending $300,000 a month on that card – every month! If anything went wrong the expenses would have crushed him. Mr. Kane didn’t have that kind of money to cover the costs! Fortunately, he was lucky enough to avoid disaster and successfully sold the business.
By the early 2000’s, he successfully purchased and sold two check cashing and payday advance stores building the revenues by over 100% in less than 18 months. He then took the knowledge he acquired from his Internet business and combined it with the small consumer loan business and created a lending platform that did $18 million a year business in its first year alone, giving small short-term loans to consumers. His platform was reviewing almost 10,000 applications daily and proprietary black box matrix decisioning enabled decisions to lend in under 5 seconds.
In order to fund this fledgling lending business, he needed $1 million in financing. The only way he could get financing was through a hedge fund. He’ll never forget the principle officer of the hedge fund asking him this question…
“Are you willing to give me your home, if you fail?”
What was Mr. Kane going to say? He had to say “yes”. What choice did he have?
Mr. Kane can’t tell you how many times he woke up at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning with the sheets soaking wet because he was sweating over whether he could make that month’s payment thinking about what if … What if the marketing doesn’t work this month? What if we’re off in our projections? What if something happens in the market we have no control over?
Mr. Kane doesn’t mind telling you he was nervous. It wasn’t that the business might fail. That’s tough enough to think about losing. He was afraid to lose the roof over his head too. And risk his family’s income!
It was from this business in which Mr. Kane, along with his wife, Vivian Kane, created Wise Business Loans – a boutique lending company that specializes in helping business owners get unsecured business loans based upon the health of their business and get the funding they need to finance their businesses without sacrificing their personal credit or assets. He took his first-hand knowledge of successfully building and selling his consumer loan platform and transferred that knowledge to the small business loan market.
Most small to mid-sized business owners can’t take the time to wait for banks, because they literally need 23 different documents, including current financials like balance sheets and P&L’s, the last 3 years of personal and business tax returns, personal guarantees, collateral or assets and high personal credit score.
Whether it’s an emergency or great business opportunity, Wise Business Loans can provide you with the capital to help your business grow and expand. Bank funding could take 30 to 90 days to secure, while WBL offers immediate access to funds in a day or two when they’re needed.
Reviewing the applications of thousands of business since inception and speaking to the business owners with loan approvals has provided deep insights into what works. The key with this this program is that the owners get the funding and access to capital they need to be successful. Since Wise Business Loans gives businesses an opportunity to grow and expand – no one can argue with that.
Mr. Kane graduated with honors and holds a BA from the University of Massachusetts and a MA from the University of Chicago.
Wise Business Loans wants to cause a significant increase in the rate of business success.
Most entrepreneurs and business owners have the same challenges. These hard-working Americans can hardly afford to wait for traditional banks and credit unions to make credit decisions on their business loan requests. The major reason is that these financial institutions require an extraordinary amount of paperwork, including years of financials, tax returns, personal guarantees, collateral and high credit.
The challenge facing the main street mom and pop shops to the mid-sized wholesalers, manufacturers, retailers and construction companies, is that these entrepreneurs and small to medium sized business owners do not know where to go when traditional banks cannot fund their loan requests for working capital. These SMB’s desperately want to expand their businesses or better manage their cash flow.
Our Goal Is Simple
Reduce the number of failures. It’s that simple. The objective is to positively impact the survival rate and success rate of Main Street small businesses in America.
WBL’s mission is to provide businesses with the capital to achieve financial success resulting in long-term access to capital and the ability to create wealth for the business owners and their employees.
