    Authors: Eric Standlee

    Since September, 2008, startups, small and medium sized business-to-business companies have struggled to get the funding they need from traditional funding sources like banks.
    For some that struggle means eventual failure. For those who know about alternative funding, the flexibility to grow despite the down economy looms large on the horizon. Land Ho!

In today's economy, Business Bankers are having to turn down their best clients for many reasons:

o their growth is too fast for a bank to understand
o or they're too new
o or they're in the wrong industry.

We help Business Bankers maintain a positive relationship with these clients.
And we help that company get the funding they need.
And we fund that into their account at that bank.

For over 25 years we've helped 1000's of companies with billions of dollars in capital to grow and prosper.

I am Eric Standlee with American Prudential Capital.

Please refer me to your Business Banker.
Please refer me to Business-to-Business companies needing capital.
Please refer me to B2B companies which might be for sale.

· Do you ever need money to meet payroll or to make tax deposits?
· If you had more cash today could you grow your business?
· Does your business ever have growth spikes that your bank is not willing to finance?
· Has your bank refused to increase your line of credit?

American Prudential Capital can accellerate your cash flow by funding on your accounts receivable and giving you immediate cash to meet your needs. Is this something you would like to know more about?

Can you refer any companies? You need to ask how you can collect a fee like an annuity for the life of all accounts you refer.

Crusaderx International, LLC

February 20012013 (12 years)

I have taken a process of creating an eQuote for a financial company which took 2 hours or more and only the Chairman and President of Sales was able to complete and reduced it to a 5 minute or less process, password protected the client's financial data, and made it so the company could put the creation into the hands of as many sales persons as they could pull on. It reduced time to present 3000% and took a $100K a month in sales company to a $3-4million a month in sales company in less than a year.
Then we integrated this piece with their corporate site, then an enterprise CRM solution for tracking customer issues and the entire sales pipeline with a overview for the executives to see their pipeline all the way through the cycle and as granular as each and every sales person's performance.

Moderation - advise clients in area of content which they could share with the general public as a service that would generate subscriptions to the podcast, referrals to the company, and increase visitors to the website.

Podcasting is very much in the public eye, and video podcasts and audio podcasts add stickiness and interest to an otherwise stale website. We manage it and moderate it for you so that it is a minor interruption.

The Fundraising Advantage

September 2005June 2006 (10 months)

TFA Mentor - TFA, particularly in Phase II is the ability to raise substantial monies without asking for donations from members – at all. This is a remarkable point of departure and indeed a welcome ‘change of pace’ for both organization leaders and organization members. Imagine raising hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars for your church or Christian charity without having to ask loyal, yet somewhat beleaguered members to dig into their pockets for yet another ‘fund drive.’

If you run across anyone who would be open to receiving hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars for their ministry or faith-based non-profit without asking anyone for any money whatsoever? If we could take most of the fundraising responsibilities off their shoulders and help them accomplish their monetary goals in approximately 6-12 months, would you know anyone who might be willing to spend a few minutes to meet with our director?
