As we move through the holiday week, I wanted to take a moment to thank every one of you for being an important part of the Ursula, Inc. family.   I am so grateful for all of you and your entrepreneurial spirit and fearlessness because you inspire me every single day! On that note, I decided to pull one of my most popular solo shows from the past to hopefully inspire you to bring more magic and excitement to your life and your entrepreneurial journey. And to remind you that yes, ANYTHING is still possible when a desire comes from your heart. Taking a journey in business as a CEO is a massive leap of faith. One that requires you to grow in ways that you never thought possible. Sometimes the journey is trying and we want to call it good enough even if we get “close” to our goal. I say; NO MORE! No more settling for less than what we asked for. This week on the Quantum Expansion podcast REPLAY, we are talking about faith in business, being crystal clear on exactly what we are asking for and then holding onto that until it comes into reality. There may be people that come into our lives along the way to encourage us when we feel like giving up. Other times we may be the only one out there driving in the snow when everyone told us not to. Whatever our journey may look like, we need to hold out for the rubber duckies and accept nothing less. Ursula's Takeaways: Going Back to 2019 (6:18) Looks Like You Can Use This Scraper (15:54) Miracles Happen All The Time (21:54) Hold On To Your Goal (26:18) About Ursula Mentjes  Ursula Mentjes is an award-winning Entrepreneur and Sales Expert.

“When you learn what you have to do, and you understand how it works, the path of least resistance is laid before you to help move on.” Rob Lougee Access to information is a primary factor to ensuring that veterans going through tough situations receive available assistance. Our guest today has been working with the disabled veterans for a long time to help them set up successful businesses and careers. Rob E. Lougee, a service-connected disabled veteran of the Persian Gulf War, was appointed Assistant National Employment Director of the 1.3 million-member Disabled American Veterans (DAV) in March 21, 2016. From the DAV National Headquarters located in Cold Spring, Kentucky, Mr. Lougee manages special employment initiatives and works with private and public sector entities to develop and build partnerships to address joblessness and underemployment, as well as facilitate job fairs and lead efforts to connect veterans and transitioning service members to employers. A Boston native, Mr. Lougee enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1983 and served until 1992 in the First Armored and First Calvary Divisions, attaining the rank of specialist. His awards included the Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Southwest Asia Medal with three bronze stars and the Kuwait Liberation Medal. Mr. Lougee joined DAV's professional staff as a National Service Officer Trainee in 1993. Three years later, he was promoted to National Service Officer Supervisor and served as a National Area Supervisor from 2002 to 2008 until an appointment to serve as Adjutant and Executive Director for the DAV Department of Colorado. Mr. Lougee returned to serving as a National Service Officer Supervisor and National Area Supervisor following more than a year in the Department of Colorado's top post. He is a life member of DAV Chapter 19 in Cold Spring, Kentucky. Mr. Lougee studied business at Central Texas College. He lives in Hebron, Kentucky. He has a daughter named Amanda living in Colorado. In today's episode, Rob will talk about his work caring for disabled veterans and the various resources that they can leverage for their good. Listen in! Social Media; LinkedIn link: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rob-lougee-9710526 Most of the males in my family all served in the military and I joined the military back in 83. [12:54] I was blessed to be able to serve in outstanding military units and came back thankfully with all my appendages. [3:18] The military taught me so much about my ability to endure the unknown and to think strategically, to understand what commitment is, and to think on my feet. [3:38] I've been with the DAV now professionally for 26 years and I enjoy taking care of my fellow veterans and their families. [4:28] We give disabled vets a chance and we try to take care of them through the many programs and services that we have. [5:05] It is my pleasure to try to engage veterans and meaningful employment opportunities and provide them the tools and the information to get it. [5:27] I always encourage all people who have served in the military to register with the VA, regardless of whether they need the assistance or not. [7:46] Every veteran that wore the uniform, put their lives out there for their country, whether they actually went to war or not and so deserve all the benefits that they are entitled to. [8:49] The DAV wants to engage with any entity that is interested in hiring veterans and here many companies that have hired veterans. [10:27] I ask veterans to keep an open mind, not just think about what they did in the military but understand their capabilities and take a chance every now and then. [11:59] You may not always get what you want or what you think you need, but you have to start somewhere. [12:17] Predominantly, a lot of us join the military start right after our 18th birthday and often don't know what we want to do with our lives. [13:55] During your military journey, you realize your capabilities and the different things about yourself, and you learn to grow like everybody else does. [14:14] The military culture is a little more stringent where people are trained very specifically to do their [14:28] You should volunteer for every school the military is willing to send you to because at the end of the day, that's going to help you when you get out of the military. [14:46] Commercial Break. [15:22] The proportion of service disabled veteran owned small businesses. versus civilian businesses how that we have a greater percentage of just under 9% are veteran owned. [19:56] We are hoping that more veterans are engaged through entities such as SBA in different levels help them set up their business. [21:00] 45% of veterans that are leaving the military are more likely to think about beginning their own small business and one out of 10 small businesses in the US is veteran owned. [22:09] The skill set of problem solving is probably the greatest attribute that a veteran entrepreneur possesses. [22:47] We are working diligently through several government entities to try to level the playing field and get the privileges that minority groups are entitled to. [24:08] One of the issues that you have in small business world is that you have small businesses that fail, because they don't understand the business concept of small business. [26:38] We have a lot of resources out there to help veterans, whether disabled or not and even women veterans. [27:14] I want to ensure that every veteran that has an idea and wants to explore it have the information they need to go down that path to see if it is for them or not. [27:42] Regardless of whether you are a non-profit or for profit, to be in business for 100 years is an achievement. [29:53] We are very excited to be able to finally celebrate our centennial celebration where September 26, and 27th will be the major dates. [30:36] You always want to make sure that you're trying to do it better than the generation before you and da v has a track record of doing it better. [31:27] We understand that you have to evolve and so we're very proud of the fact that we've been able to stand the test of time. [31:38] We welcome all veterans out there that may want to become a part of our group, we can help find them find something to do within their capability level. [32:19] We live in a technological age and we have to maximize the potential of that not only for our donors sake, but for reaching out to that veteran or a service member. [33:19] When you learn what you have to do, and you understand how it works, the path of least resistance is laid before you to help move on. [33:38] They'll always be issues with transitioning out of the military and so we try to put that in some type of context. [34:11] Any veteran that is thinking about getting in or starting a business, there is a bunch of different resources available to help you push forward. [36:25] The VA has the office of small and disadvantaged business utilization; SBA has the Veterans Bennet business development. [36:38] The OVBV has an office that guides members through all the steps and starting a business; and the Institute of Veterans and Military Families which teach veterans and their families how to start and run a business. [37:00] There is also entrepreneurship bootcamp for veterans and patriot bootcamp who assist military members to creators, innovators and entrepreneurs. [37:52] We also have the Women Veteran Entrepreneurship for women veterans and the GSA who have a federal surplus for personal property donation program. [38:47] Think outside the box because you are capable of doing much more than what the military ever taught you. [41:35] …………………………………….

This mini-series has been walking you through the mental and executable actions in becoming an entrepreneur. Today, we are finally going to talk about part of "how," as in how to start your business. Specifically, how do I fund my business? Before I go any further, please go talk to a banker and an attorney. I'm going to speak from my experiences and perspective, but their guidance should be considered the ultimate authority. That said, how do you get working capital? There are several ways. First and foremost, you need to create a business plan like we discussed last week. No matter if you are 100% self-funded or seeking funding, you need a business plan. The plan is your rationale for the business, the projected expenses and revenue, etc. This is critical as you will follow this plan as you launch your business and scale it over the next 3 years. Once you have your plan, you can decide which funding path you feel most comfortable with. Here are the most common funding pathways: You have savings, a 401K, etc. that you can access. Self-funding is by far the easiest pathway to access working capital. You can pull money out of savings to start your business. You can take your 401K and use that as seed money if you so choose (there are banks that can help you create a C-corp and use this funding without tax implications--but again, talk to a financial representative to learn more). You have home equity or other lines of credit you could tap into by refinancing your home or execute a HELOC in order to create capital. If you are fine with a higher monthly mortgage rate and this action is one you are comfortable with, then consider this as an option. A bank loan or SBA loan. For small businesses, SBA loans are the most common. Know that they can have higher interest rates, around 5% or more. You must put between 10-20% down, out of your pocket. Last but not least, they will put liens on all of the property you own: cars, homes, land, etc. You will put up a certain percentage, the bank another percentage, and the SBA will cover the bulk of the loan. The SBA doesn't loan you the money, they simply become a guarantor of the money should you default. Normally they guarantee about 70-80% of your loan. You must have strong credit, around 700 or higher. The assets you have need to be worth enough for the bank to feel comfortable loaning you a reasonably large sum of money. While there Investors. Decide how much money you will need from an investor or investors (use your business plan!) and then decide when you will need it. For example, do you need $100,000 investment in the first year, then you project in year 2 you will need a $500,000 investment to buy property/land and build a building? Decide how many investors you are willing to take on, the percent ownership of the company, and if you want them to b a silent partner or an active partner. Last but not least, know that you can do a combination of any/all of these pathways. There is no wrong answer, just the one that gets you the money you need, when you need it, in a way that makes you feel most comfortable. Your last challenge of the series is to decide the pathways of investment you are comfortable with and will pursue for your business. Note, I never got into the legal creation of an entity, a sales process, or HOW to run a business. These are executable pieces once you have committed to becoming an entrepreneur. Committing is the hardest part and that's exactly what you just worked through this month! If you have business-specific questions, reach out to me at katrina@legendleaders.com.

Starting a new business is one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments in a person's life. The stakes are high: depending on your situation, your whole net worth could be on the line. So how can you make sure that you're in a position to succeed? On this episode of In Good Companies, we're talking business beginnings—the things you can do to prepare for what's ahead. Guests Alan Thomes (Managing Director of SBA Banking, Cadence Bank) and Allan Adams (State Director, University of Georgia SBDC) join us to discuss bulletproof business plans, funding options, and developing relationships with key stakeholders. Together, we'll uncover key resources, like expert consultation (for free!) from the Small Business Development Center and low-risk loans through the Small Business Administration.

How to Refinance an SBA 7a into an SBA 504 Up until recently, you couldn't refinance an SBA 7a into an SBA 504. But that's all changed! Now, you can. And it's worth exploring, as you can save oodles in interest. The rules for the SBA 504 loan just got changed and it will allow you to refinance your SBA 7a loan into an SBA 504 loan. This was not allowed up until now unless you were doing a lot of additional business expansion. THIS IS HUGE NEWS! Most SBA 7a rates on properties are adjustable in the 6% range (currently). However, current blended SBA 504 rates are in the fixed four percent range. If you could save two percent, would you do it? Of course you would! NOTE that SBA 504 loans are for real estate and equipment only. Business-only loans aren't eligible for this program. If a borrower owns the real estate that their business is on, and they are in the SBA 7a program, they will save thousands of dollars over the life of the loan! For example, on a one million dollar loan, the savings would be around $1,500 a month. Think of it this way: To pay that extra $1,500 (every month), you would have to earn $15,000 MORE in sales if you run a ten percent profit margin. Put another way, you can sell LESS and make MORE if you convert your SBA 7a into an SBA 504 loan, due to the net decrease in interest payments you'll be making.

This special series of SMG's 'Are We Here yet?' podcast explores the financialisation of our economy and how that is effecting the real estate markets. We set the stage in Episode one describing the very real issue of wealth transfer through the liquidation of residential property that occurs in recessions. Our guest is Dan Crowley, a forty year veteran of community banking and consultant to real property owners and developers for acquiring SBA and HUD financing. Dan cut right to the chase. When asked whether we are experiencing a man-made manufactured downturn in order to take wealth away from the most vulnerable, he didn't mince words. "I think It's pre-engineered intended shifts in wealth." So we start off our series setting the stage for what we think is coming in the market and why that's so. But lest you think we'll only focus on the storming days ahead, we hope to offer in the remainder of the series perspectives and sometimes direct solutions so you can navigate our unstable economic landscape to find your own way of building wealth and meaning.

He is the founder and CEO of Rapid Growth, LLC, dedicated to achieving maximum ROI for businesses of all sizes. Though his client list includes multiple Fortune 500 companies, his real passion is helping small business owners end the overwhelm, eliminate the stress and guesswork, and get on a clear path to Rapid Growth. Called “the real deal” by Forbes, his methods have transformed over 3500 businesses to date.This commitment to a job well done, combined with his father's favorite saying, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” set the stage for Matthew's entire life. Things did not come easily for him, but he made his success possible by charging on, creating inventive solutions to problems, and never giving up.Matthew believes that there's something heroic about a person with the talent, passion, and belief in themselves to launch a business. Owning a business can be exciting, liberating, and lucrative. But all too often, it can be overwhelming, stressful, and resource-draining.Matthew loves the process of helping a business determine its exact right message and niche. He loves sharing the simplicity of a sales process that gets results. Most of all, he loves being a part of a transformation that brings relief, joy, excitement, and empowerment to business owners.It's the drive to give back that keeps Matthew energized. His passion for helping small business owners was the motivation behind founding the annual Small Business Festival, named a Top-5 must-attend business conference by INC.

Matthew is proud to have earned four government proclamations and an endorsement from the SBA as a result of the Festival's contributions to the small business community.A lifelong introvert, Matthew often struggled to fit into an extroverted world. Never was his challenge as an introvert greater than that first door-to-door sales job; that's when Matthew recognized that the business world is largely geared toward extroverts and that he'd have to harness a different skill set in order to succeed.Since then, Matthew has come to believe that his introverted qualities have directly led to his success, not impede it. He is on a mission to erase the stigma around introversion and to empower introverts to recognize and leverage their innate strengths and abilities.Learn more about Matthew at MatthewPollard.com and connect with him on LinkedIn.

The Melanie White you will meet on today's interview is a 4th generation CEO of her family's business, Hellwig Products, but her journey definitely didn't start out at the top. While simultaneously working on her degree in psychology and working at a bakery,  Melanie's desire to be in outside sales was born. After seeing and listening to the sales reps that came through the family business, Melanie decided she wanted to have a go at impacting people through sales also. Her timing was perfect; Hellwig Products needed an outside salesperson to do their cold calling, Melanie saw the opportunity and raised her hand. Cold-calling was a gruelling experience and very quickly she learned she had to know more than the people she was selling to and figure out how she needed to talk to them if she wanted to make the sale. Hearing “no” was commonplace Melanie quickly developed a thick skin. Through tears, perseverance and the knowledge that she was made for more, Melanie forged ahead and fought against everything that worked to keep her small. From sales rep to CEO Melanie's story is one of inspiration to never give up, find new ways to improve the old and no matter how difficult it is keep going until you reach the top.

Olga Sagan is the Owner of the nationally renowned bakery, Piroshky Piroshky. Founded in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market, Piroshky Piroshky has offered handcrafted pies to loyal fans since 1992. An immigrant from Russia when she was 16, Olga arrived in America and faced many challenges overcoming language barriers and learning to navigate what it means to be a woman in a leadership role — something that was not encouraged in her home country. In 2006, Olga became part owner of Piroshky Piroshky and took complete ownership in 2017. Under her leadership, the bakery has grown to four locations and a food truck, teamed up with iconic Northwest businesses such as Field Roast, Uli's Famous Sausage, Tillamook, and Double R Ranch, and introduced a vegan line. Passionate about leadership, she got her SHRM Certification in 2018 and was picked by Puget Sound Business Journal as a “small business hero” in 2019. She was also chosen by the SBA as the 2020 “Washington Small Business Owner of the Year.” In 2020, she started Catch22Market, a free website aggregator that helps small businesses take their customers back. In this episode… Two of the most important character traits needed to build a thriving business are trust and transparency. Entrepreneurs need to be transparent about their products, businesses, and how they relate to other players in their industry. They also have to build trust with their customers and industry partners. Olga Sagan's desire for transparency led to the creation of Catch22Market, a website aggregator which helps put power back into small businesses. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she realized that many players in the food industry were losing a lot of business due to the shutdowns and were spending a lot of money working with third-party delivery apps to serve their customers. She, therefore, came up with the brilliant idea for Catch22Market that not only provides transparency but also helps build trust between businesses and their customers. Olga Sagan, the Owner of Piroshky Piroshky, is Andrea Heuston's guest in this episode of the Lead Like A Woman Show where she gets interviewed about her entrepreneurial journey and her desire to give power back to small business owners. Olga explains how she immigrated to the US, how she came to be the sole owner of Piroshky Piroshky, and how her website aggregator tool is helping businesses in the food industry thrive. Stay tuned.
