Ripoff Report REVIEW /Commitment to Customer Satisfaction

Beyond Breakeven joins Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a long name for a program that does a lot for both consumers and business alike.

Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program -- a program that benefits the consumer, which helps to increase consumer satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business Verified By Ripoff Report.

When a company or individual joins the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Program, they must make a commitment to us - in writing - to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' What does that mean? It means that Ripoff Report expects that members of our Corporate Advocacy Program will review and respond to ALL customer complaints promptly. It means that every complaint will be taken seriously and every customer will be treated fairly and with respect. It means if a customer did not receive what they expected, the company will work with that customer to fix the issue. It means that if a customer requests a refund and if there is any reasonable basis for that request, we expect the customer will be given a prompt refund (some refund requests may not be reasonable, so this does not mean a refund is guaranteed in every case). "Making things right" can mean lots of different things to different people, but our point is this - by working closely with the company or individual to resolve any disputes, Ripoff Report can track the footprints of customer service to ensure that our Corporate Advocacy Program members are doing everything they can to treat customers fairly and to increase their customer satisfaction.



ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM THE REST

By ED Magedson - Founder, Ripoff Report

Beyond Breakeven approached Ripoff Report with the intent of wanting to resolve any customer issues and reports posted on Ripoff Report.

As a Part of the Corporate Advocacy Program the member business allows Ripoff Report to send an email to all of those who filed a complaint in the past, letting the customer know, the member business wanted to make things right with them, whatever it takes to do so. Ripoff Report always monitors these emails to insure the member business does what they agreed to Beyond Breakeven did just that.



BEYOND BREAKEVEN CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS

" The company excels at customer service and exceeds expectations, in part because it first has policies and procedures for carefully accessing projects before agreeing to work on them. That process starts with a free client consultation where the wannabe business owner is able to meet with a project screener and speak freely about the merits of his or her project. Together they explore the project challenges and possibilities for overcoming those roadblocks. During that exploratory and problem solving meeting, the likelihood of project success is determined and the project is either accepted or not. It is this careful vetting of projects and policy of only accepting ones that are viable with coachable, serious and decisive wannabe business owners, that results in a high success rate.

BBI’s detailed screening process allows them to only accept about one out of every fifty applicants. Upon acceptance, clients are provided professional services that include business valuations, forensic accounting, deal structures, buyout contracts, business plan development, business entity formation, enhancement of personal credit scores and development of business credit etc. Doing this work in-house at Beyond Breakeven, Inc., gets this critical work done professionally, quickly and without the high cost of individual service providers, which typically saves wannabe business owners more than $30,000.

Once a start-up business concept has been fully developed or an acquisition agreement signed, the project culminates with multiple funding options that are appropriate for the project and its ability to service debt. It is through this stacking of financial building blocks strategy that securing 100% of the money needed to fund a project can be achieved. The secret to complete business funding lies in preparing and positioning the entrepreneur and the project for loan approvals, along with bringing the LBO (leveraged buyout) strategies of Wall Street deals to Main Street small businesses. This means leveraging the assets of the business, not the buyer, to get the business deal done. Even more advantageously, the project funding options included in the final funding plan typically do not require collateral, experience, high personal income or down payment money from the potential borrower’s own funds.

Since the biggest roadblock to starting or buying the business of one’s dreams is getting the money, serial entrepreneur, Ed Keels, set out years ago to solve that problem for himself and the benefit of his own projects. After having owned many businesses, including one that provided inventory management and loss prevention services and another that trained bankers regarding their own financial products, in 2003 at the age of 49 he founded Beyond Breakeven, Inc. To date, he has developed over 100 ways to fund the start-up or purchase of a business and do so with none of the principle’s money.

With a history of having owned, started, managed, etc., over twenty businesses, Mr. Keels was told many times that his projects simply did not fit the bank lending criteria. So, in almost every business he had to find and use funding methods that were alternatives to bank funding. Using a little of his college education in business and psychology and relying much on his business experience, developed a proven system for getting everything that needed to be done, done and cost effectively. Most importantly, the system provided funding options that did not require down payment money having to come from the borrower’s own funds. This system and resources are what he and his company share with challenged and struggling, wannabe entrepreneurs. Mr. Keels has been quoted as saying, “What we are most proud of is being able to help people get into business, who we are sure could not have gotten there without our help. Changing lives is a mission worth living.” Many of those projects can be found on the company’s page at… www.Facebook.com/BeyondBreakeven



WHY BEYOND BREAKEVEN IS BETTER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS

Despite continuous and exhaustive research, to date, no other company has been identified that provides the comprehensive services that Beyond Breakeven, Inc. provides. The BBI process puts a typical client in a business startup or acquisition without them having to figure it all out on their own, without having to spend $30K or more for professional services, and without them having to put their life savings into the deal in the form of a loan down payment of 20% or more. And, that level of service remains, unmatched.

BEYOND BREAKEVEN - STATEMENTS FROM THE CEO – ED KEELS

" Hi, Ed Keels here, Beyond Breakeven, Inc., CEO. I would like to than you for taking the time to review my company. I founded the company to help wannabe business owners to not lny secure the funding they so desperately need but to also help them with planning for success. Since statistics say a high percentage of businesses fail in their first year, BBI considers securing funding to be only half the battle. The funding might get one into business, but without a plan for how tht money is to be used the likelihood of staying in business is slim. For that reason, I designed BBI's program to include planning, preparation and operations training. I'm a firm believer in the Steven Spielberg definition of success, which is "when opportunity meets preparedness". So, because of this belief, BBI training is designed to educate to the degree that our clients become knowledgeable beyond that of the business broker, seller and or any other professionals involved and therefore be the smartest person in the room. After all, it is the client whose future is on the line; it is the client who is committing to debt and risk, so it should be the BBI client who is the smartest person in the room. To that end, the company has eleven training videos on the business start-up and buying process that are available at no charge by clicking the "Get Funded Now" button on our page at www.IfTheBankSaysNo.com

Due to this commitment and focus on education, BBI was approached by producers of the PBS televeision show "Breakthroughs with Martin Sheen" to do a public service television show on the subject of business breakthroughts. Specifically, the theme of the show was Mr. Keels business funding concept of stacking multiple financial building blocks to eliminate the need for down payments whild providing 100% funding.

In recent years the compnay has expanded from providing one-on-one business coaching services to also providing group training throught it's live workshops. Attendance at some of the workshops is provided at no charge to military veterns, first responders and their families through the donation of Mr. Keels' time and money, and funding from individual contributors and corporate sponsors.

At Beyond Breakeven, Inc. we pride ourselves in using the highest quality SERVICE.

All of the company's tools from business valuation program to pro forma estimating program, business credit building program to the education on the differences between LLC's, S-Corporations, C-Corporation etc. have all been developed in house, and are proprietary, copyrighted works
