New Online Program Designed to Increase VA Rating

A father-son duo create a program to help veterans increase VA disability rating

Military veterans seeking benefits now have a program designed to assist with increasing their VA disability rating. Veteran army Ranger Terry Johnson, and son Gino Johnson created Champions for Veterans, an organization formed to guide veterans and their families through the VA disability rating process.

 

After 20 years of service, Ranger Johnson found himself fighting to get the benefits he deserved. It took him 17 years to get his full benefits and Ranger Johnson set out to help others to achieve results. Ranger Johnson began to assist people in his church and community which later inspired his son Gino to create an online program. Johnson calls his method the RANGER METHOD and dozens have successfully improved their rating using the RANGER METHOD. Some have gone from a zero percent rating to 100% in less than 90 days.

 

“Service men and women risk their lives and their families for many years. I want to make sure they get the benefits they have rightfully earned,” says Terry Johnson.

 

 The RANGER METHOD is an interactive coaching program with video modules, statement templates, examples, weekly coaching calls and peer support in a private online group setting. Individuals interested in this program can learn more at www.championsforveterans.com to schedule a free consultation.

Financing available for companies hurt with the pandemic and can’t get funding from traditional lenders

It is clear the pandemic of 2020 is continuing well into 2021. Vaccines are rolling out as the virus continues to change into new variants, and the new normal of social distancing, limited contact and crowds continues to dominate most every aspect of daily life. Sadly, for some businesses this has not been sustainable, and many have closed as a consequence. Larger, more established businesses have maintained stability on virtue of size and capital. Some businesses are in limbo while waiting for the pandemic to pass or fall to manageable levels for continued commerce.

This means many businesses are struggling with the basics – payroll, taxes, rent and more. For these businesses, there is a solution with Sayfer Broker. Their team is committed to establishing solid relationships with clients, lenders, and partners. By providing the best financing solutions available to business owners while creating a positive association with business financing. Through our streamlined process, revolutionary technology and educated team of experts, we support business owners ability to create new opportunities. Sayfer Broker is proud to empower the heartbeat of our country, our small businesses.

Sayfer Broker is your reliable, trusted source for the working capital you need to sustain, grow, enrich and enhance your business

Thousands of business owners received the financing they need to take their business to the next level. Apply today and grow your business with an Unsecured Business Loan and bad credit is ok with no personal guarantee or collateral required.

Most companies working with Sayfer Broker will get approved

They have a very high approval rate because of our unique way of providing Unsecured Business Loans and it’s possible to receive your funds in one day.

The company loans $6 million per month to small businesses and this provides peace of mind and stability in what is proving to be a much more difficult time than many could have predicted.

 Unless your business has the balance sheet of Amazon, eventually you will probably need access to capital through business financing. In fact, even many large-cap companies routinely seek capital infusions to meet short-term obligations. For small businesses, finding the right funding model is vitally important. Take money from the wrong source and you may lose part of your company or find yourself locked into repayment terms that impair your growth for many years into the future.

Before applying, make sure all business records are complete and organized. If the bank approves your loan request, it will set up payment terms, including interest. If the process sounds a lot like the process you have gone through numerous times to receive a bank loan, you are right.
