Developing Strong Leaders for the
Commercial Equipment Leasing/Financing Industry
By Scott Wheeler, CLFP

 The commercial equipment leasing and finance industry is experiencing a transformation.

  • Every participant is faced with the changes that are necessary to better serve vendors and end-users.
  • In three to five years we will look back with amazement at the progress the industry has accomplished.
  • These are exciting times for companies and professionals that are willing to embrace change.
  • Every aspect of the industry will be affected; efficiencies and data will be the key to success for individuals and companies.
  • The focus will be on better decisions, not faster. Working smarter, rather than harder. Companies will improve profitability by being specialists, rather than generalists. Sales professionals will be required to know more, to be consultative advisors, and will be using predictive analytics to drive their prospecting efforts.
  • The transformation will benefit the value-added entrepreneur who is leading, rather than following the trends. It will benefit the non-commodity player as much as the commodity player. The transformation will reward quality assets and excellence.

Top performing originators are embracing change. They are bold, forward-thinking professionals who are excited about  new opportunities and providing superior products and services to the next generation of vendors and end-users.

Exciting Times Ahead

The Mentor Program was created to assist candidates in preparing to take the CLFP Exam. The Program is voluntary and is offered at no additional cost to the candidate.
A candidate will be assigned a Mentor upon request following formal application and receipt of fee for the CLFP Exam. Candidates are matched with a mentor who is knowledgeable in areas of the Body of Knowledge of interest to the candidate. Or, the candidate may request a specific individual.

All Mentors hold the CLFP designation and will answer questions about the conduct of the exam, assist the candidate in understanding and interpreting areas of the Body of Knowledge, and generally provide intellectual, experiential and moral support.

The candidate is expected to learn the required material on his or her own by studying written materials, by taking available industry courses, and through industry work experience. Mentors will provide clarification and interpretation for subjects the candidate has already studied. For instance, the Mentor will clarify Present Value Theory, but will not teach the Theory.



Annual average temperatures of the oceans’ surfaces have been diverging from the 20th century (1900-1999) average more and more since the 1980s. In 2018, global ocean surface temperatures were 0.66 degrees Celsius higher than that century’s average, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

While the annual divergence fluctuates (as some years happen to be hotter and others colder), there is still a definite upwards trend visible in the data. The year with the biggest divergence on record was 2016, when measured ocean temperatures were 0.79 degree Celsius higher than the stated average.

The global data for near-surface temperatures comes from ships, buoys and satellite measurements of the oceans. While fluctuations are a normal phenomenon, an increase of the number of years that are warmer on average is expected due to climate change, which is the increase of global average and mean land and ocean temperatures. According to scientific findings, the continuing global warming will lead to changes in the strength, frequency, spatial extent and duration of extreme weather events.

Medical Marijuana Legalization Bill Introduced in Wisconsin
32 States Legally Use Marijuana/Medical or Recreational Purposes

Three legislators in Wisconsin have united to introduce a bill legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. The legislators include two Democrats, Erpenbach and Taylor, and Testin who is a Republican.

Sen. Jon Erpenbach, Taylor and Testin in a joint statement on Friday announced that the time has come for the state of Wisconsin to lift the restrictions and legalize the use of marijuana. The bill would create a system that allows patients to be entered into a list through registration and the growers to be issued with a license permitting them to grow cannabis for medical purposes.

In the United States, there are 33 states legally using marijuana either for medical or recreational purposes. Among these are, Michigan and Minnesota. In Colorado and nearly a dozen other states, residents can use marijuana for medical and recreational purposes.

In the statement, Testin said that the government should not decide if marijuana is right for inducing treatment; doctors and patients should be given that mandate to determine if cannabis is right for treating a particular condition.

For the past decade, the Democrats have been trying to pass marijuana legalization bills with no success. However, it is still uncertain whether with the Republican support exemplified by Testin, the bill will be passed into law. Speaker of the Assembly, Robin Vos is open to passing the bill but the Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald has openly voiced his opposition.

Tony Evers, the Democratic governor, had proposed legalization of medical marijuana, in the Winsconsin budget, but the provisions were not included in the final budget plan.

Through his spokesman, the governor did not comment on the bill. Moreover, since he is running for Congress in the year 2020 in a Wisconsin district that is traditionally conservative, his stand on the bill is unlikely to change. Supporting the bill would pose a threat for him as it would be a motivating factor for his primary challengers.

The proposed marijuana legalisation bill has the following terms that have to be met by the doctors, patients and the cannabis growers.

Persons qualifying to receive medical marijuana have to be suffering from one of the following ailments; AIDS, cancer, Alzheimer’s, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and severe and chronic pain.

Before being registered and joining the list of people to receive medical marijuana treatment, a doctor should diagnose the patient, explain the risk factors as well as the benefits of using medical marijuana.

Patients applying to receive medical marijuana are supposed to pay $250 for registration and $250 in annual fees.

The marijuana registry is not visible to the public and people who are or have been convicted of a drug-related crime are not allowed to join the list.

The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection would set up a licensing system for the growers, if the bill remains as it is. The licensed growers would include persons growing a dozen-plus marijuana plants. Grower would have to pay an initial fee of $250 and an annual fee of $5000. The licensed growers would also be prohibited from growing cannabis for family or personal consumption.

On Friday, Evers tweeted his supports for the bill while pointing to a recent poll by the Marquette University Law School which showed that 83 percent supported the legalization of medical marijuana. In the tweet he wrote that now was the time for physicians to be allowed to prescribe the medication that they felt was best placed to treat their patients.

Analysts believe that the chances of this bill sailing through are too close to call, and they also believe that industry players like IONIC Brands Corp. (CSE: IONC) (OTC: IONKF) and Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) would wish that patients have the option of using medical marijuana sooner rather than later.

This Day in History

    1493 - Columbus' 2nd expedition to the New World
    1513 - Vasco Nüñez de Balboa, a Spanish conquistador, stood high atop a peak in the Darien, in present-day Panama, becoming the first European to look upon the Pacific Ocean, claiming it as the South Sea in the name of the King of Spain.
    1690 - The first American newspaper was published. "Publick Occurrences,” with sub-title, "Both Foreign and Domestick" was written, printed, and distributed by Benjamin Harris, at the London-Coffee-House, Boston, Massachusetts. British authorities considered the first newspaper published in the US offensive and ordered immediate suppression. "American Facts and dates" states "Publick Occurrences" lasted only four days. Governor Simon Bradstreet of Massachusetts said he did not like certain “reflex ions.” Harris had intended to issue its monthly “or if any Glut of Occurrences happen, oftener,” but only the one issue appeared. It was a one-sheet paper folder to present four pages, containing news in double columns. The last page was blank. There were no advertisements. France brought their war with England to the Americas, making an alliance with the Indians. The estimated colonial population was 213,500. Very few colonials could read. Town carriers were very popular and the reading of the newspaper in the pub had a very high rating with active discussions that followed.
    1775 – Ethan Allen surrendered to British forces after attempting to capture Montreal during the Battle of Longue-Pointe.  Benedict Arnold and his expeditionary company set off from Fort Western, bound for Quebec City.
    1777 - The Conway Cabal began, an alleged plot to remove George Washington as commander of the Continental Army.  This followed Washington's defeats at Brandywine and Germantown, and Gen. Horatio Gate's victory at Saratoga. The plotters wished to put Gates in Washington's place. Gen. Thomas Conway, whose promotion had been opposed by Washington, wrote an indiscreet letter to Gates. Its contents, in distorted form, were then reported to Washington. When details of the plot leaked out, public opinion was overwhelmingly on Washington's side. Actually, Conway seems to have been more the victim of the plotters than the guilty party. He resigned from the Army in 1778.
    1789 - Congress transmitted to the state legislatures twelve proposed amendments, two of which, having to do with Congressional representation and Congressional pay, were not adopted. The remaining ten amendments became the Bill of Rights. The establishment of religion on a national level was expressly prohibited in the U.S. with the adoption of the First Amendment, the opening words of which read: 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.' Final ratification of the First Amendment came in 1791.
    1804 - The Teton Sioux of the Lakota demanded one of the boats from the Lewis and Clark Expedition as a toll for allowing the expedition to move further upriver.
    1846 – US forces under Zachary Taylor captured Monterrey, Mexico.
    1861 - Secretary of Navy authorized enlistment of slaves as Union sailors. Eventually the Union had 18,000 black sailors.

    1890 - Polygamy was officially banned by the Mormon Church. This announcement followed on the heels of an 1890 Supreme Court ruling denying all privileges of U.S. citizenship to Mormons who practiced this outlawed form of marriage.,6021,184-1-314-4,00.html
    1890 - Congress establishes Sequoia National Park, California
    1897 - Birthday of William Faulkner (1897-1962) at New Albany, MS.  American novelist and short story writer, Nobel Prize winner who changed the style and structure of the American novel. Faulkner's first novel, “Soldiers' Pay” was published in 1926. His best-known book “The Sound and the Fury,” appeared in 1929. Shunning literary circles, Faulkner moved to a pre-Civil War house on the outskirts of Oxford, MS, in 1930. From 1930 until the onset of World War II, he published an incredible body of work. The “Portable Faulkner” appeared in 1946 and “Collected Stories” in 1950. In June of 1962 Faulkner published his last novel, “The Reivers.”

    1917 - Birthday of Philip Francis "Scooter” Rizzuto (d. 2007), in Brooklyn.  Hall of Fame shortstop for the New York Yankees (1941-1942, 1946-1956).  Member of World Series teams in 1941, 1942, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1955. 5-time All-Star and 1950 American League MVP.  Rizzuto overcame his diminutive size to anchor a Yankees dynasty, helping them win seven of nine World Series during his 13 seasons, not counting three years lost to World War II. "The Scooter" was a durable and deft shortstop, skilled bunter and enthusiastic base runner who compiled a .273 lifetime batting average. Upon retirement, he spent 40 years as a popular Yankees broadcaster, the longest tenure of any Yankees broadcaster.
    1918 - RICKENBACKER, EDWARD V., (Air Mission) Medal of Honor.
Rank and organization: First Lieutenant, U.S. Army Air Corps, 94th Aero Squadron, Air Service. Place and date: Near Billy, France, 25 September 1918. Entered service at: Columbus, Ohio. Born: 8 October 1890, Columbus, Ohio. G.O. No.: 2, W.D., 1931. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy near Billy, France, 25 September 1918. While on a voluntary patrol over the lines, 1st Lt. Rickenbacker attacked 7 enemy planes (5 type Fokker, protecting two type Halberstadt). Disregarding the odds against him, he dived on them and shot down one of the Fokkers out of control. He then attacked one of the Halberstadts and sent it down also.
    1919 - President Woodrow Wilson becomes seriously ill and collapses after a speech in Pueblo, Colorado.  The next day they diagnosis it as a stroke. It is said that he was incapacitated and Mrs. Wilson and a “cabal” began to run the United States (more on this tomorrow. Yes, the press was controlled about presidential cancer operations, infirmities and other “goings on.”) This event brought about a major change in American history, studied by students in high school to college.
    1919 - Drummer Rossiere “Shadow” Wilson (1919-59) birthday, Yonkers, NY.  Much of Wilson's early work was with swing jazz orchestras, including Count Basie, 1944-46.

    1926 - Henry Ford announces the 8 hour, 5-day work week. Ford was the first to grant a ten-hour week, paid vacations, paid sick days, all before union organization. He worried about safety, boredom, and knew his “modernization” may eliminate jobs, even started company schools for employees. He was quite liberal for his day, a leader among inventors and scientists, and unfortunately most uninformed people remember him as an industrialist who took advantage of his workers.  While he did have his prejudices and faults, he looked at his employees as part of his “family.”
    1926 - NHL grants franchises to Chicago Black Hawks and Detroit Red Wings
    1929 – Testing skills that would serve him well in World War II, Jimmy Doolittle performed the first blind flight from Mitchell Field in Brooklyn, proving that full instrument flying from take-off to landing is possible.
    1934 - Lou Gehrig plays in his 1500th consecutive game
    1934 - Rainbow (US) beats Endeavor (England) in 16th America's Cup.
    1936 - Bluesman Roosevelt "Booba" Barnes (1939-96) is born in Longwood, MS.
    1939 - A west coast hurricane moved onshore south of Los Angeles bringing unprecedented rains along the southern coast of California. Nearly five and a half inches of rain drenched Los Angeles during a 24-hour period. The hurricane caused $2 million damage, mostly to structures along the coast and to crops, and claimed 45 lives at sea. "El Cordonazo" produced 5.66 inches of rain at Los Angeles and 11.6 inches of rain at Mount Wilson, both records for the month of September.
    1944 - Birthday of actor/director Michael Douglas, New York, NY.
(it is also his wife's birthday, see 1969)
    1945 - New York City, pianist Errol Garner records for Savoy his famous version of “Laura.”
    1950 - “The Kate Smith Hour” premiered. Kate Smith was a talented singer who hosted a radio show before beginning a successful but short TV career. This late afternoon show was the most successful among two other prime-time shows, “The Kate Smith Evening Hour” (September 1951—June 1952) and “The Kate Smith Show” (January—July 1960). It included interviews, musical numbers and comedy or drama sketches. The sketches spun off many series, including “The World of Mr. Sweeney” and “Ethel and Albert.' She was a very popular singer on the radio, best known for “God Bless America,” but she could not make the transition to the small screen.  Smith's rendition of "God Bless America" was played during the 7th inning stretch of New York Yankees home games from 2009 until April 2019, when the practice was discontinued amid controversy surrounding her 1931 recordings of “That’s Why Darkies Were Born" and "Pickaninny Heaven.” The following day, the Philadelphia Flyers followed suit. The statue of Smith was removed on April 21, 2019.  Her family responded by denying the racism allegations. Those against the discontinuation of using Kate Smith's works have cited the satirical nature of the song "That's Why Darkies Were Born." and the fact that it was also popularized by Paul Robeson. Smith called for racial tolerance in 1945 in an address on CBS Radio, saying, "Race hatreds, social prejudices, religious bigotry, they are the diseases that eat away the fibers of peace." She went on to say that it is up to us to tolerate one another in order to achieve peace.
