I recently wrote a column for Forbes Magazine about how chess compares to entrepreneurship.

This was not my first column. I have written several since I joined the Forbes Business Council in the summer of 2021.

My latest column, entitled “What Chess Can Teach Us About Entrepreneurship,” discusses how learning chess at an early age have provided me with important lessons that translated to my successful career as a serial entrepreneur. The article can be viewed here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusinesscouncil/2024/05/02/what-chess-can-teach-us-about-entrepreneurship/?sh=1bdf5f3b77d7

It’s a privilege to be able to share some of the lessons I have learned in my career.

Those lessons ultimately culminated in me creating Burns Funding and the “Burns Funding Method,” which is reshaping the alternative lending space.

In fact, we recently published a website, which explains this innovative approach. The Burns Funding Method has attracted almost two dozen borrowers in recent months, with many, many more in the pipeline for being approved. Not surprisingly, our company was recently profiled in the Wall Street Times in the following article about its meteoric rise – https://wallstreettimes.com/exploring-innovative-strategies-for-funding-start-ups/

Our niche will give us staying power, since we are a great alternative to traditional banks, which are difficult for entrepreneurs to work with. We have hundreds of private investors who have come to trust Burns Funding and are willing to back that up with their capital. We embrace borrowers. This attitude directly opposes the negative reception that entrepreneurs receive from banks and other conventional lending sources.

In the meantime, keep a lookout for more columns in Forbes as well as Entrepreneur Magazine, where I am also a columnist.
