Conventional wisdom says businesses fail because they run out of cash… But a lack of cash is more of an effect than a cause, and I can prove it with a little unconventional thinking.

About The Author

Ernane Iung
President and Owner, ei Funding

The son of a physician and second of three boys, Ernane Iung was raised in Flint, Michigan, the product of the combination of a Brazilian upbringing in a Midwestern home. That upbringing laid the foundation for an executive international career spanning 28-years, twenty of which were spent overseas in São Paulo, Brazil where he solidified his career working for multinationals with such household names as GE, Whirlpool, Philips, and Oster.

His international career has taken him across four continents, with travels all throughout Brazil and South America, in addition to Canada, China, Holland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia, just to name a few. Ernane has been a C-Suite executive for more than 11-years and is an expert at running small companies, having done so with the sales subsidiaries of the multinationals he has lead.

As part of this experience he has worked with hundreds of small businesses, ranging from mom & pop stores, corporations, and family businesses to start-ups; and it is this wealth of experience that has created the groundwork for this, his first book and podcast series, The Success Factor – Unconventional Wisdom for Small Business Success.
