On occasion, the expert gave attendees valuable advice on all accounting and financial information that a business owner must have for a bank, government, or investor to be interested in making a loan. This presentation is part of a long financial education process that Felipe and his team regularly deliver to New York entrepreneurs, teaching accounting, finance, and QuickBox through other organizations such as NYC Business Solutions or different New York chambers of commerce. In Felipe's opinion, "Many Hispanic businesses are not prepared to obtain loans because they do not have orderly accounting and also do not declare everything they earn", factors that, according to the expert, affect the failure to obtain financing to grow your projects. Among the documents that business owners must have, there is, for example, a business plan, "It should not be fifty pages, with only two well-explained pages and with clear numbers, it is enough." Other key information is to have a good Cash Flow Statement with all the company's financial operations for the last three years. Working on a good personal credit score is also important. Felipe has helped many of his clients achieve successful loans since the financial education process that WealthSpring carries out for its clients is constant. "If they grow, so do we," he clarifies.
