Host David Biondo Will Show You How To Waive 'Goodbye' To Conventional Business Lenders - He's Been Proving It's A Better Way For Almost 30 Years


We go by different titles:  OwnerEntrepreneurConsultantDoctor. LawyerFreelancerSelf-Employed.

But we share a common business oxygen: financing.

Without sufficient and affordable funds, all of us wither and eventually collapse.  Helping you to readily and efficiently find the money you need to fuel your business and its growth is one of the primary missions of Signal Butte Financial Corp. and Bank on Yourself.


This is the good news: Learning how to avoid conventional business lenders altogether is much easier than ever having to deal with them - and, as you'll discover - much more to your financial advantage.

The core principals embodied in the Bank on Yourself business-finance method date back more than a century and have withstood the test of time. 

While many business owners lost as much as 45% of their investment portfolio during the 2008 drubbing and its aftermath, for example, not a single business owner lost a penny in his or her Bank on Yourself plan, which has shown uninterrupted growth through every market crash and downturn of the past 50 years.

As David Biondo can quickly explain to you, those business owners who embrace this unique, 'unconventional,' and proven strategy, not only eliminate the need for conventional financing for their businesses, they secure and grow their personal wealth without risk or exposure to market fluctuation.

You hear David every week on the radio, interviewing and offering advice to many of Colorado's most successful business owners and entrepreneurs. Now hear what David and his company, Signal Butte Financial Corp. can do to provide you with a proven financing method that will generate wealth and security. 

Phone or email David today to schedule a zero-hassle phone consultation. David won't sell you anything.  He'll explain to you exactly how Bank on Yourself can perform for you and your business - and then you make the decision of whether it's the right approach for you.
Phone Signal Butte Financial Corp. at 303-800-6420

Hear David and Co-Host Dean Rotbart, a former Wall Street Journal columnist, talk about Signal Butte Financial Corp. and what it offers small business owners.  



This Hour of Monday Morning Radio Could Reorder Your Life: An Exclusive Briefing On Why Most Financial Advisors Suck


Garrett B. Gunderson is Author of the New York Times Bestseller, Killing Sacred Cows


[Listen and Profit Now]  


Most of what conventional financial planners tell entrepreneurs about how to grow and protect their wealth is crap.  Okay, so that's not a very polite thing to say.  But it's painfully true.  


Otherwise savvy small business owners can be totally stupid when it comes to trusting their money and investment strategies to others.  


That is a sermon that Garrett B. Gunderson - who became a multi-millionaire before age 27 - has been preaching from coast-to-coast business pulpits for years and is a core concept in his New York Times groundbreaking bestseller, Killing Sacred Cows.  


Garrett, an educator and financial advocate, is the force behind The Freedom FastTrack, a go-against-the-grain process of building and protecting your wealth that defies conventional wisdom, yet produces extraordinary results.  


On this special episode of Monday Morning Radio, produced in cooperation with Business Unconventional, Garrett unloads on commission-obsessed financial planners and explains why chasing interest rates will never produce the phenomenal wealth that comes when you chase your life's soul purpose.   


Garrett Gets Paid A Fortune As An In-Demand
Corporate Speaker and Small Business Consultant... 
But His Weekly "Freedom FastTrack Intelligence Brief" Won't Cost You A Dime  


As a Business Unconventional and Monday Morning Radio listener, you can receive a free, trial subscription to Garrett B. Gunderson's Freedom FastTrack Intelligence Brief - keeping you on the cutting edge of personal and professional financial success in less than 10 minutes a week.
