Business Loans

Uncle Sam likes entrepreneurs.  If you are looking for small business funding, the first place to start is at the U.S. Small Business Administration.  They will partially fund almost anything so start here first.

Real Estate Investing

We can’t claim to be experts, but we know real estate.  From the time we (poorly) rehabbed a mobile home in Colorado and (successfully) rented it, to the time Sebastian pushed back his retirement date by about a year due to a failed fix and flip.  If you are interested in real estate, stay clear of the “gurus”.  Start at Bigger Pockets.
