Description

****The insights and applications from this course apply to the US, UK and Australia****

Would you like to borrow $15K, $30K, $50K or even $100K of cash for your startup or small business at interest rates of 1-3% within the next week?

This course will help you do exactly that.  This course provides a concise, simple guide to borrowing tens of thousands of dollars at interest rates below 3% for as long as you need the money using your credit card.  

The lead instructor for this course, Ian Bednowitz, spent years of his life consulting to different credit card companies while he worked at Bain & Company.  He learned how the credit card companies use balance transfers to entice customers with promises of low interest rates and then lay traps for them to fall into that makes incredible amounts of profit for the credit card company.  More importantly, he learned how to avoid those traps so he was able to borrow over $100K for his graduate education for over five years at interest rates of 1-2%. 

In this course Ian and his co-instructor Jasper Ribbers will show you how to do the same thing for your startup or small business:

  • Learn exactly what balance transfers are and how they work
  • Find the most attractive balance transfer offers available (US only)
  • Get cash into your account in a matter of days
  • Adopt simple strategies to manage your balance transfer so you avoid the three key traps the credit card companies set to make you pay higher rates
  • Increase your credit score to get more credit to borrow and more attractive balance transfer offers
  • You don't need any kind of collateral for a balance transfer nor do you need to give up any ownership of your company

What you need to use the lessons from this course immediately is experience using credit cards, a good credit score and a need for additional cash for your startup or small business to use for marketing, additional inventory, new staff or any other project to help your business grow.

This course is not for an entrepreneur who needs hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars for his or her startup or small business.

Former Head of Mergers & Acqusitions, eBay; Bain consultant

Ian Bednowitz established and led the Mergers & Acquisitions team for eBay's largest business unit for five years. During that time, he and his team invested over $1B in capital in dozens of startups across the world after evaluating and meeting with hundreds of entrepreneurs. He has a deep understanding of entrepreneurs and the challenges they face, as he not only invested money in their companies, but he would also coach them on challenges ranging from growing their business, raising funds and staying healthy while living an incredibly busy lifestyle.

Prior to his role at eBay, Ian worked for over seven years at Bain & Company, a leading strategy consulting firm, where he helped work on strategy, marketing and operational issues in a broad range of Fortune 500 technology, financial services and consumer products companies. Bain sponsored Ian to attend the Kellogg School of Management, where he earned his MBA, focusing on strategy and entrepreneurship. Ian graduated with B.A. in Economics from Cornell University.

Ian realized his greatest passion at eBay was working with and coaching the entrepreneurs. As a result, in 2015 he stepped away from his role at eBay to focus exclusively on coaching entrepreneurs both one-on-one and through his Udemy courses which reach thousands of students worldwide.
