How Jeff Sekinger is Taking Over the Financial Consulting Business

In just the past twelve months, Jeff Sekinger has managed to serve over 1,000 clients, coach over 100 people one on one, and has helped dozens create new income streams and quit their jobs by leveraging low interest credit. Jeff has managed to build 5 businesses (two million dollar businesses), all in this short amount of time, but not without sacrifices.

Jeff runs a financial consulting business where he helps individuals and entrepreneurs leverage credit to create income and build long-term wealth. His entire brand and business revolves around financial independence. His goal is to help his clients save, make, and multiply their money.

“The key component of my business is leveraging 0% interest credit to build passive income streams that generate income that exceeds our expenses, which by definition creates financial independence,” he says.

Since he was sixteen years old, Jeff has been investing. He attended the University of Kentucky where he majored in finance and worked for two different banks. After graduating, he got a job in private wealth management with the largest bank in the United States. After working 19 months, he realized the corporate 9-5 life was not the life for him. Jeff ended up starting his personal brand and business while working his banking job. The bank denied his outside business activity and told him he could not be speaking about finance on social media. In that very moment, Jeff decided to quit his job and run his business, full time.

“The first few months were not easy. I could barely afford rent and my debt was piling up. After 2 months of working every single day I had my first 5k month and it has just exponentially grown since then!” he shares.

Jeff’s interest in the financial consulting business came from seeing how many people were living unfulfilling and uninspiring, working jobs they did not like just because they needed money.

Jeff shared, “I saw this first hand in my corporate job. Almost every single person hated Monday and adored Friday. I realized that work is such a large part of our lives so I asked myself: “Why would I live the majority of my life doing something I really didn’t enjoy doing?”

He knew entrepreneurship was the only way out of an uninspiring career so he wanted to help other people start their business ideas. For most people looking to start a business, financing can be a huge barrier to entry, so he decided to start with credit.

Once Jeff was able to fix his own credit, and see all the possibilities that came with a good credit score, he realized that he wanted to help others leverage this tool so they too could start living better, more inspiring lifestyles.

Breaking out of the corporate life and going all in on my brand and business was one of the biggest obstacles Jeff has had to face. “I felt a lot of pressure to stay in my banking job as that is what friends, family and society saw as ‘successful’. When I realized that being successful is living the life that YOU want it made the decision much easier. If I would not have trusted myself 12 months ago, there is no chance I would be even close to as happy as I am now,” he shares.

Jeff always acts in the best interests for his clients, and that is why he has been as successful as he is. While everyone else the industry charges “funding fees”, meaning they advertise 0% interest financing but then take 10% of the financing they get them up front, he charges a one time consulting fee that is often times much lower than his competitors funding fee. He also teaches his clients how to strategically fund themselves 0% interest credit that allows them to stay at 0% interest for 5+ years so they can actually operate without needing to pay him again.

“I like teaching people how to fish as my goal is to empower people to be financially free, not lock them in on high interest debt. I will continue to build a long-term brand based on value and impact because I care about that more than money,” he says.

It is no secret that to reach the heights Jeff has, you have to give 110%. With hard work and dedication, Jeff Sekinger has managed to transform his life in just twelve months. By believing in himself, and following his passion for transforming lives, Jeff has been able to leave his mark on the financial industry.
