How does Global differ from other training programs?
Making the decision to enter your own business is perhaps the most important decision you will ever make. Identifying which type of business may be difficult but deciding who assists you in getting into that business is critical. Global realizes that and we intend to make that decision easy.
Global is the premier training program in the market!
There really are only a handful of companies that claim to do what we do and everyone of them that have emerged over the years has copied some aspect of our training. The question you should ask is ... Why?
The answer is Experience! No other company in this business has more continuous experience making actual loans and training people to enter this lucrative field more than the Global Financial Training Program. Our training has been built on the solid base of direct experience of making loans for over 36+ continuous years which has resulted in us being the best possible training in the industry. We have measured every aspect of our training. The length of time, the numbers of loans, the subjects covered, the lenders... literally every single part of our training has been carefully evaluated with one objective in mind... Your success, the ease with which you will be able to get started, and the heights that you will be able to achieve.
While other companies keep trying to sweeten the pie with additional days of training... from 4 to 5 to 6 or more... We have actually evaluated what works best for our students and what are they able to absorb the first time around so as not to suffer from information overload or be shortchanged. The answer is 4 days. Our testimonials prove it.
Our direct lenders have proven to be the best in the industry and you have more types of loans available to offer your clients than any other program.
We want you to make an informed decision. So we have provided an "apples to apples" comparison of Global and the other companies in this business…but don't stop there. Do your research. Call us. Ask tough questions. This is a critical moment in time for you and we want to make the decision as straightforward and easy as possible.
There is Nothing More Valuable than Experience...
and it cannot be faked.
No other company has been doing what we do for as long as we have!
We live in a world that has come to embrace the concept of mentors and the importance of experience. Over 36 years ago, we entered the loan brokerage business. We learned the hard way what worked and what did not. We continue to do that today and our training reflects every lesson learned. Along the way, it became very clear to us that there was more business than we could possibly handle, so we decided to share that knowledge with others. This was groundbreaking territory. We didn't have others to imitate like some companies do today. We created the training from scratch and improved it every month. We found the best lenders, the best business practices, the best loan types, the best marketing strategies, all through hard work and decades of experience. No other company has been doing this as comprehensively and continuously as we have at Global.
While many companies claim to have decades of experience the fact is that they do not. Their executives have combined many years of "business" experience but they have not continuously been in the commercial loan brokering business for nearly as long as we have. Here's the really telling fact. We can trace our competitors right back in time to the day they took our training before they decided to attempt to duplicate it. That fact alone says it all.
When we talk about being in the trenches of commercial loan brokering for over 36 years, we are not lumping several executives experience together. We've been making loans and teaching people how to enter this field longer than anyone else. More important, this is not some textbook learning experience. We started in the field by arranging loans and we continue to do it today. We learn every day what works and what doesn't. We test loan products, marketing tactics, communications techniques, every aspect of our business and we make it available to you. Our CEO, Phil Dushey has been a leader in the field for decades and is certainly one of the industry's icons. The better business bureau has given us an A+ rating and our students have realized extraordinary success.
Getting you started the Minute
You Enter the Business is Critical
In our business people often make the mistake of thinking they have to sell or work very hard to get leads. In fact, with the Global Financial Training Program help you will learn that the opposite is true. We fully understand that thousands of businesses need money to survive and grow, so we have perfected methods to simply let THOSE people know we have a solution to their problem. It’s not selling or working hard, it’s working smart!

There simply is no other company in this business that has this depth of knowledge and experience to share with you. It's important to carefully digest what other company’s state as fact. If you do a careful analysis you will see some similarities but in the end it is impossible to fake experience. They either have it or they don't.

We will show you how to set yourself up, so that you get your phone ringing within the first week after leaving the training.
The Right Mix of Products
We provide you with lending products that allow you to answer nearly any business need. More importantly, we teach you how to offer recurring solutions for clients who have already realized that you are their "go to person" when it comes to their financing needs.
It's most important for you to understand the process by which certain loan products become popular and others fall by the wayside. Our lenders are the best in the industry. They are professionals... they are primarily large companies, funds, and institutions that do this every day. As the business climate changes, certain types of financing are more appropriate than others. It's critical to have your hand on this "pulse" so you know what is and is not working. That's what these lenders are able to do. They have vast resources and entire research departments that do nothing but take that pulse for you. They determine the best lending products. Unlike private investors, they are not limited in their cash reserves. They won't be in business one day and out the next. These lenders are large organizations that have committed themselves to this industry for decades. Simply put... you can rely on them to be there when you need them. Don't be misled by claims of regulation on these lenders vs. private lenders. It's simply not accurate. These large institutional lenders are not regulated and operate under the same guidelines as wealthy individuals. They are just much larger, better organized and more reliable.
We Teach You The Best Possible Mix Of Loan Programs
that Results in a Very Wide Range of Loan Types to Offer Your Clients.
The fact is there are literally hundreds of different types of loans. Teaching you every variation would be impossible in a brief period of time. So our program teaches you how to identify which core lending product a client needs and how to gather the important information from the client. Once you do that your lenders will guide the client to the best solution. And unlike other companies, your clients will always be yours, not the lenders. The lenders act as YOUR service arm. Below is a sampling of some of our core lending categories:
Accounts Receivable Financing - Factoring- Equipment Leasing - SBA Loans- Business Acquisition Financing - Franchise Financing - Medical Practice Loans - Working Capital Loans - Merchant Cash Advances - Sale Leasebacks - Stock Loans - Asset Based Financing - Project Financing - Bridge Loans - Hard Money Loans - Structured Settlement and Annuity Financing - Lines of Credit - Medical Accounts Receivable Financing - Medical Practice Acquisition - Equity Financing - Business Acquisitions- Purchase Order Financing - Energy & Commodity Finance - Contract Financing - Commercial Real Estate Financing - Equity Financing - Unsecured Lines of Credit - Construction Financing - and many more.
Some companies specialize in only one or two types of financing while others give you a laundry list of every type of loan they can imagine. Some even "guarantee" that they will teach you various categories. However this does not guarantee that you will find that knowledge useful. If a loan category is not being actively financed by major lenders you are wasting your time learning for the sake of learning. Don't be misled by big claims. Trust experience!
A Word about Mega Loans
Mega loans are large loans of $100 million or more. Can you make mega-loans once you graduate? Absolutely! One of our students closed a deal for $115 million. His commission on that deal was more than most people make in many years. These deals do not come around everyday but you will be prepared and supported should these types of loans come your way. If you take a look at the kind of money you can make in this business you will realize like any smart business man knows that efforts need to be balanced. By focusing efforts on your small and mid-sized deals, not only will you pay the bills but you will establish your reputation as a successful financier which will in turn bring you these mega loans.
Given our experience of over 36+ years, the simple fact is that no other company has maintained long lasting relationships with lenders that will give you the knowledge to help guide your transactions to close larger deals. We teach you that mega loans are not only appealing but attainable. Despite our advice to focus on mid-sized loans as they will be your “bread and butter,” we understand the aspirations and we will work diligently with you at your request on these types of loans.
Other training programs don't have the learning or experience to close the bigger deals, not to mention instruct about them. They don't have the long standing connections and involvement with the firms that have the ability to do the larger deals.
There are a great deal of organizations that say they have the capital sources and information to put these bigger capital solicitations to influence their organization "to look greater," however in actuality, they don't have the experience or the connections to deal with any such demand.
Dealing Direct With Lenders
Once you complete our program, you will be approved to do business directly with the lenders. Typically, these lenders require you to be in business for at least 3 years and have worked in the industry for 5 years or more. The lenders also want you to guarantee them a minimum of monthly volume, which is impossible for you to do as a start up broker. They waive those requirements for our students because of our track record with these lenders. More importantly you will actually meet many of these lenders face to face during the training. In these "lender sessions" they will guide you through the best products to market... those that close easily, are precisely targeted and very profitable. You will work directly with your lenders and you make vital industry contacts that will serve you for life. The lenders are paying commissions directly to you so there are no middlemen. You are in control of your client, while being backed by our guidance. The process is specifically designed to give you the greatest possible leverage.
Some companies just “teach” the business but don’t have the real industry experience in actually doing and funding all the transactions that they teach on a daily basis. Some companies limit your exposure to the lenders, while others make you go through their back office where they split commissions. These companies state that they have experience in ALL areas of the finance industry but the hard truth is that they simply do not.
A Well Organized Training Program
That has Stood the Test of Time
We've been perfecting our training program for more that two decades and we've been making commercial loans for well over three decades. That is the kind of experience you want when you decide on a training program. Did you ever see one of those ads or receive an email for a get rich quick scheme? They offer you dozens of downloads, multiple links, a bunch of books and a pile of printed materials. They take a huge fee for this kind of information claiming to make you rich... quick. Do you know what the problem is? They know it’s TOO MUCH information. Besides being to much to get through, it becomes confusing to use, so they are safe and you got scammed. They gave you what they promised but you weren't able to act. And ACTION trumps everything! That is exactly what we have worked very hard to AVOID.
We have focused our training on critical ideas and information. Every month we work at making it easier to comprehend and act upon. We don't have you sit in a room from 8am to 8pm for a week learning information you will never use. Instead, we focus on what you MUST know to succeed. Our objective is to UN-CLUTTER your mind allowing you to start acting from the minute you get back from the training.
This site has a complete section on the details of our training however what's important to understand is that we cover every subject that is needed... not only to enter the commercial loan brokering business... but to be in business... period. Best practices in every aspect of starting your new business. Tools needed. Communications techniques, a wide array of skills, basic business needs such as a website and branded materials.
Some people ask about the length of the training. Over our many years in this business we have experimented with many training time spans. It's been our direct experience that 4 days is optimal. When we held the program for more days, our students walk out with information overload. When we tried to run the program for less days there was not enough time to communicate as much as we would like. Our program doesn't stop stop just because the 4 days are up, you will receive 1:1 lifetime support and guidance.
Other companies either teach too narrow a field of information or keep expanding the days of the program making you feel like you are getting more bang for your buck. In addition, they have websites listing dollar amounts all over their sites and then they want to point out what a savings you are receiving.
Ongoing Support and Continuous Training
During the last part of the training, we give you a point by point guide as to what you should be doing day one, week one, month one etc.. We know that you have just learned a great deal of information and may have questions once you have had a minute to let everything sink in. Precisely for this reason, we have created the Global Mentorship Program, guaranteeing ongoing lifetime support and availability. The person that trains you will transition from trainer into your personal mentor. In addition to our support, our lenders must guarantee to us that they too will be available to you for additional support. Remember, we have been doing this for well over 36 years, so there is not one aspect of the business that we cannot address, not one question that cannot be answered.
Don’t kid yourself and think that your education stops the day you leave. You are enrolled in the Global Mentorship Program, which provides lifetime support. As our students need a greater knowledge base or have questions we are there to provide that answers and assistance. In addition, as new products are introduced, webinars and distance learning is provided to keep you up to speed on industry innovations. As you start getting your feet wet and start closing deals on a regular basis you will likely need us less and less. That being said you can pick up a phone at anytime. It is our goal to see you succeed and there is no better way than giving you ongoing support.
Other companies tout that they will be available to you 24/7. This is a lifestyle business where you shouldn't have to work nights, weekends or holidays. In addition, the lenders are closed on the weekends, so nothing is actually taking place on Saturday or Sunday. That being said it is very easy to say you are available at a time when no one is seeking assistance. The bigger question is what type of support will you receive from the other companies in two years from now? The answer is that they only offer two years of support, so you will actually be receiving a bill if you need any help beyond that.
Pre-Qualifying Our Graduates
The reason we have such a high success rate is because we actually pre-qualify people interested in taking our program. When we speak to our clients we conduct a “reverse interview” which will highlight certain qualities that that our lenders are looking for as well as other qualities that will ensure success in the finance industry. Since we have been in the business for so long we can tell immediately, who will do well in the financial arena. Experience or education in the area of finance can never hurt but is not a necessity to be successful in this business.
We look for qualities such as personality, previous business experience, employment history, previous business ownership, sales experience, life accomplishments etc.
Pre-qualifying our trainees is so important because once you are done with the training you will be using the lenders that we have been doing business with for years. We would never want to compromise our relationships by just sending just anyone to them. This is why our training program results in so many successful brokers, hence that is why you will always hear us saying your success is our success.
We are sure that other training companies and business opportunities are not experienced enough to interview you without you even realizing it. They will make you fill out extensive questionnaires so that it seems like they are being thorough, when in reality all they want to do is take your money and promise you the world.
We Are Not a Get Rich Quick Scheme
There are many programs out there that make a handful of promises, claiming you can become a millionaire overnight. They make claim after claim how they will provide you with so many services that will leave you with little or nothing to do.
At Global, you will always hear us saying “work smart...not hard.” It is important to understand that most people that work smart, work very hard. The difference is that the people that work smart are utilizing their efforts in the right way producing results. Passion, drive, dedication and hard work are all requirements to achieve success. Our training is set up in a way that we get down to brass tacks, focusing our students on the tasks that will produce an income as opposed to wasting a lot of time on tasks that are not fruitful. With our training and ongoing support, you will quickly realize that by working smart you will be on the path to achieving a lucrative income, as well as the lifestyle you desire.
There are companies out there that lead you to believe that they will do everything for you and if you give them more money, they will provide you with even more services. They leave you feeling that all you have to do is find the business and there is nothing else for you to do.
The truth is that there is a lot of moving parts that go into running your own business. At Global, we break everything down in a way that makes the business manageable. Once the program concludes, not only will you go home with an agenda to follow but you will be enrolled in the Global Mentorship Program, which provides continued 1:1 lifetime support. “Give a man a fish and he eats for a night, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime”
