“In the realm of finance, the most expensive lessons often involve financial mismanagement, ill-advised investments, or reckless spending. Yet, these experiences can serve as our financial North Star, guiding us toward better decisions, prudent savings, and the creation of lasting wealth.”
– Simon Sinek
Some of life’s most valuable lessons are painful to learn. It can be physical pain, like discovering the stove is hot when you touch it, or emotional pain, such as discovering a trusted friend or partner has misled you. But either way, it is information you need to know.
Since specialty lending often involves businesses and individuals who do not fit neatly into conventional lending criteria, it is a world where the risks are high, and the stakes can be even higher. And those high-stakes transactions are where we often find some of the most enlightening and transformative lessons.
We learn the importance of extensive due diligence, and of understanding the nuances of the businesses we finance. We discover that cookie-cutter solutions simply will not cut it; we must tailor our approach to meet the unique needs and circumstances of our clients. And if you have been in the business long enough, you have learned the most expensive lesson: not building strong, long-term relationships. That is a painful one indeed, as it can cost lost clients, lost deals, and lost respect.
