Now here’s the biography I have been waiting for since the 1990s.
We take apart one of Kirk’s greatest deals in The Tycoon Playbook to reveal his brilliance. The man is a legend.
I just got the book and am really looking forward to devouring this one.
“A remarkably detailed and fascinating look at the career of an idiosyncratic tycoon.” – Booklist

How to Get the Money to Buy Your Dream Business
A few years ago, I added a number of learning modules to the main course on how to apply for funding from investors, bankers, and specialty lenders so that you get the money needed to do your first deal. For every obstacle, problem, or weakness keeping you from raising the capital you need, there is a solution or workaround as the modules reveal.

If after following this system you still can’t get financing, your only hope is divine intervention, to put it bluntly.
Here are the details of the extras I added a few years ago:
An Opportunity for Consultants to Expand Their Practice and Client Base
If you’re a consultant would you like to expand your expertise and increase your client base?

Brokers use your available down payment to screen you out quickly. If the seller is asking for $50,000 as a down payment and you can only show that you have $5,000, you’re banished.
