There’s an old saying that if you want to know what someone is like, you just need to look at who their friends are.
At SharpShooter Funding, we take this to heart, which is why we are so proud to work with WWE legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart to provide business funding to the small Canadian companies that are the backbone of our economy.
Over the course of a career that lasted a quarter of a century, Bret “The Hitman” Hart become one of the most known and feared names in professional wrestling — and an icon of the scrappy, independent Canadian spirit.
If you want to work with a small business funder that has the same toughness and work ethic that propelled The Hitman into the pantheon of all-time wrestling greats, SharpShooter Funding is here for you — and here to help make sure that you have the resources you need to build a thriving, successful business of your own.
Bret Hart and SharpShooter: A Winning Combination
Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart has become a household name for his unique style and unparalleled understanding of wrestling.
But while he shot to global fame in the 1980s as one of the most skilled members of the legendary Hart wrestling dynasty, he hasn’t been idle in his retirement. Instead, he has developed his skills as an author, a columnist, and has even founded a WHL hockey team, the Calgary Hitman.
He has also been one of the most candid and outspoken commentators on wrestling. In Part 1 of his interview with House Money Studios’ Alfred Konuwa at his home in Calgary, he pulls no punches in a wide-ranging conversation about the WWE brand split and his criticisms of the new direction the WWE is taking under the leadership of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
In Part 2 of the interview, the Hitman goes on to share his thoughts on everything from the long, scripted promos that he feels make it difficult for wrestlers to do their work, to the importance of safety in the ring, a topic of great importance to him given the injuries he himself has suffered, including the kick to the head that ended his professional career.
In particular, he calls out Seth Rollins for what he sees as Rollins’ reckless attitude toward his safety and the safety of others.
Clearly, age has not cooled the ire of the wrestler many consider to be “the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be.”
But while his passion for wrestling remains undimmed, Bret “The Hitman” Hart has also branched out into other ventures in recent years, including becoming part of the SharpShooter Funding team.
At SharpShooter Funding, we are pleased to be working with a living legend whose talent in the ring is matched only by his commitment to helping Canadian small businesses thrive. Continue reading to find out more about the Hitman and SharpShooter can help you make your business dreams come true!
SharpShooter Puts World Class Funding Within Reach
Accessing funding is consistently listed as one of the biggest challenges that Canadian small businesses face.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of businesses in Canada have fewer than a hundred employees, banks are often reluctant to provide them with the capital they need to scale up and take advantage of new opportunities as they come along.
One of the reasons why alternative funders like SharpShooter are becoming so popular is that we make applying for funding easy and transparent.
For example, if you need business funding for the short or long term, you can apply today and find out almost immediately whether your application will be approved — in some cases, we can approve applications within as little as twenty-four hours.
And because, like most small business owners themselves, we work seven days a week, when you apply for funding through us you don’t need to do so during banking hours.
A common concern many business owners have about alternative funding regards the fees that are involved in most funding packages. Getting funding is never free, and it only makes sense that business owners want to make sure that they funding they are getting today won’t mean even greater expenses down the road.
This is why we provide full transparency around all of our funding options. Before you even send in your application, you will know exactly what the payment formula is, which gives you the opportunity to make an informed decision before you apply.
In a country like Canada, where the banking industry is dominated by a few major players, alternative funding options like SharpShooter Funding are an essential part of the landscape insofar as we give small businesses an opportunity to access the start-up or emergency capital they need to get a foot in the door.
According to some industry experts, the top three alternative funding organizations in Canada are together now providing as much as $20 million per month in funding to small businesses. Clearly, there is an appetite for this kind of financial support.
At SharpShooter Funding, we have long been inspired by the energy and work small business owners put into the companies they are founding and running. And like Bret “The Hitman” Hart himself, we believe that fighting for the little guy is always a worthwhile venture.
Just as the Hitman spent his years in the ring fighting the good fight by working as safely and as responsibly as possible, SharpShooter Funding is committed to responsible business practices that benefit all of our partners.
Get in touch with us today to find out more about our funding options, or start your application for funding today!
