Brian was a manager in an auto store for five years before starting his own mechanic shop – Stripped Motorsports. Brian first demonstrated his entrepreneurial spirit three years prior by selling bike parts - acquired from Craigslist or auctions – to customers online or in his store. Eventually, Brian started selling new bikes and providing mechanic services such as oil changing. Along with managing the day-to-day in-store operations, Brian also spends a large portion of his time on the road. He travels mainly through Oregon, Washington and California purchasing inventory. With limited amount of capital for these purchases, Brian needed assistance from a lender but did not have a long enough track record to work with a commercial bank. Brian needs a loan to be able to purchase bikes and bike parts to keep up with the growing demand from his clients.
