About Tim

Is it possible to start and scale a highly profitable business – even if you have no money? Tim T. Mercer believes you can, because he’s done it himself. The truth is, the majority of new entrepreneurs and small business owners start out funding their business from their personal incomes. In this course, Tim teaches you the steps he took to grow his business to over $50MM in revenue (with no outside investors!) by bootstrapping. You’ll understand the basics of business financing and learn about a number of different ways of securing capital that are often overlooked. So, whether you are a startup or an established business that needs to stay afloat, or if securing money from investors is not an option, this course is for you.
