In the over four decades of business start-ups under his belt, Peter J. Burns III has seen it all. He believes what holds true for virtually every business is that nearly 80% of the process of starting and operating a new venture is exactly the same…with 20% being the “unique differentiator” ….what separates a tech application enterprise from a pizza delivery business.
A simple video Peter recently did for his YouTube Channel describes his utilizing my own particular skill set of “assembling the pieces” of a start-up.
Peter J. Burns III fares from back East and is domiciled there (The Hamptons) and this past two years he has set up another place of residence in Southern California, in the spectacular beach community of La Jolla. Being an entrepreneur, with a laptop, Smartphone, Internet Connection and a Rolodex (He is dating myself here, lol) that expands to many thousands of invaluable contacts across the world…Peter can operate from literally anywhere.
Since he landed out West, Peter has been working with a Team of great partners in a unique niche in the luxury villa vacation space, launched a “re-do” of an old engineering marketing venture that is tailor-made to his new villa venture (www.hlcostseg.com) and partnered up with a very interesting and quite luxurious vertical of flying “pampered pets” by private jets (www.petjetstravel.com).
Along the way, Peter reached out to assemble his own infrastructure of contract workers like web and graphics designers, lead generation experts, social media mavens and even personal assistants. His reach out through only a couple of local channels yielded an astounding pool of over 350 individuals who wanted to join him. Vetting through the lot was time-consuming but educational and Peter J. Burns III cherry-picked a handful of superstars. This left a whole lot of perfectly qualified but under-utilized talent out there…a key component of this latest idea Peter is exploring in this blog today.
In America, as is the case in much of the world, the strive for achieving “The American Dream” is alive and well. People crave self-determination, a business and future of their very own but the process of entrepreneurship is very, very hard and only a small % of people actually act upon that goal…let alone succeed. Peter J. Burns III has been at this “game” since the age of 19 and started between 100–150 new ventures. Some ventures paid off, most died a lonely death but a few made him millions and millions of dollars and Peter will never stop with his mission of starting up new companies. This time, however, Peter is going to help others start their own companies and he thinks he has the winning formula of “baking an entrepreneurial cake” with them. 🙂
Taking Peter’s vast contacts in literally every facet of business start-ups, Peter J. Burns III has fashioned a plan of action that combines his own litany of start-up ideas with others’ plans of business start-ups with his seasoned team of independent service providers (web, graphics, legal, accounting, lead gen, social media) and that often elusive necessity of…actual start-up capital. Mixing all of this together in the exact proportions necessary…Peter believes that he can launch (and participate in) any number of new ventures by helping the wannabe entrepreneurs “bake their very own entrepreneurial cake.”
As Peter suggests, start-up capital is the “gas in the tank” that all ventures need to make a go of it. Banks have been and always will be completely useless for the start-up entrepreneur…but Peter doesn’t use banks. Instead, he has cultivated alternate funding resources over the years and one, in particular, has proven to be extremely useful for his new endeavor.
The NY Times Bestselling Author of “Guerilla Financing” is his old friend and Peter and he conduct a lot of business together. Recently, Peter has secured funding offers for two of his La Jolla clients, a $30,000,000 line of credit for an exciting entertainment company and a $3 million line for short-term financing for an airline ticketing company. In one of his recent weekly chats, Peter’s friend shared a brand new product that is perfectly fashioned for the line up of potential entrepreneurs that knock on his proverbial door literally every day. He has a non-secured credit card product that offers up to $175,000 in affordable money to any brand new start-up candidate who has a FICO score of 700 or slightly more. Period.
The individual can have the idea that he is hell-bent on launching and even if he or she does not have the required 700 + FICO, can bring in a credit partner that does and then Peter has secured a valid credit repair firm to “up” the score of the entrepreneur through a time-tested methodology over a short 2–3 month window…while the “stand-in” credit partner helps launch the start-up. Once the entrepreneur’ score is improved enough to qualify for the Card on their own, the “interim” guarantor is released from the original obligation. Simple and clean.

Now, here’s where Peter comes in with his seasoned Team of experts…he has a professional business plan writer prepare the narrative summary, research all and prepare financial forecasts of the start-up. Peter has the web/graphics designers to develop the website, collateral material and messaging with social media experts that prepare a campaign for the new venture. He has legal and accounting standards put into place, banking relations and contracts prepared. The money from his financier budgets for all of this expert help as well as establishes a base draw for the entrepreneur to be able to afford to commit whatever time he or she needs to wean themselves off the “employment nipple” and engage with their very own business.
In life, it is always a matter of “risk vs. reward.” What’s the risk here for the erstwhile entrepreneur? Well, that individual has to “have skin in the game” and if they are allowed to borrow up to the $175k in start-up capital…that becomes their obligation to repay. Now, whether Peter J. Burns III decides to come into the deal with his assembled Team is another consideration. At this point in his life, Peter can choose to work on any deal or with any individual that he wants to…and he is very selective with whom he wishes to work with. So…if either an entrepreneur’s idea and personality are a fit for Peter or they want to engage in an ownership stake of one his many great ideas…Peter J. Burns III is willing to consider the opportunity. You can reach Peter directly at email@example.com.
Peter came up with this idea a short time ago and so far, he has 9 individuals pre-qualifying for $100k each for start-ups in the following fields:
A portable Cryo technology with significant health benefits accruing from 3 minute sessions at temperatures colder than 150 degrees below freezing. The principals of the business may become two clients and he has their first two franchisees lined up for the financing. The business plan is in the process as we speak.
A unique methodology of acquiring 40-year leaseholds on aging boutique hotels in urban areas and tripling the profitability through select improvements and brilliant yield management techniques.
A warm weather “second home: project utilizing modified and upgraded double-wide trailers in upscale trailer parks, selling interests in these trailers to “Sun Birds” on contracts for deeds.
A medical doctor who owns two urgent care facilities and who responded to my concept of creating the first ever mobile urgent care facility, tethered to traditional facilities but creating the entirely new dynamic of going directly to where the clients are….with the portable Urgent Care Facility.
We are only limited by our imagination and commitment to action. Join Peter if you dare….
