I made the decision to leave my firm in early October. From the lies, to the malfeasance, to the underhanded and devious behavior exhibited towards their employees (myself included), I had experienced more than my fair share of what the MCA space had to offer.
I had taken note of the policies and procedures as they were presented and knew that it was only a matter of time before the firm would implode. The path was clear. I gathered my items from my desk, conferred with a confederate, who would also be leaving, and left for the evening.
The next few days were spent securing office space and lead sources. The early days would operate on a small budget, until files started to flow in, and the funding ritual began. My partner and I would focus our main efforts on matters of structure and administration. How the company would be set up, how we would hire and the type of individual we would accept into our ranks were the matters of greatest import. It quickly became clear that our ideology would set the tone for how our company would both be seen and respected.
We didn’t want to follow in the footsteps of our predecessors, mistreating both clients and staff, and developing a reputation of being “just another broker shop”. Our goal was something much greater.
To become a scion in the alternative funding marketplace, with a foundation built and solidified on righteous and unassailable principles; to be the sword and the shield. While we were cutting through the competition to get the client the best possible outcome (notice I said outcome, not rate – the sword), we would also be staunchly defending them against any bad industry actors – helping to undo or protect them against further fiscal imprudence (the shield).
Whence a client took shelter under our roof, they claimed their birth right to avail themselves of wise, prudent and reasonable consultation – one which paralleled entrance into a family. With this ethos as our exemplar of moral virtue, we cut our teeth in the alternative funding community, and in 6 short months, have forged the relationships and bonds to see our vision come to fruition.
We are now instituting the 2nd phase of our process, introducing and stimulating growth through our franchise program. We are ushering in a new era in the global funding marketplace, and endeavor to execute on our philosophical standards by partnering with as many like minded individuals as possible. See what it means to be part of the Veritas family, and how refreshing and cathartic the truth can be. After all, what is the alternative?
