Chris Hurn, Mercantile Capital Corp CEO, Publishes Book Aimed at Helping Entrepreneurs Reignite the American Economy

Orlando, FL, September 29, 2012 --( Christopher G. Hurn, chief executive officer of Mercantile Capital Corporation in Orlando, can add the title ‘published author’ to his professional resume. On Oct. 1 Hurn plans to release The Entrepreneur’s Secret to Creating Wealth: How the Smartest Business Owners Build Their Fortunes, his first book.

He also has a special offer for entrepreneurs: buy two or more copies of his new book, and he’ll donate all proceeds to the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation. The book, which sells for $19.95, offers Hurn’s unique perspective on wealth he gained lending money — $318 million so far in 2012 — to fund the efforts of small business entrepreneurs to acquire or develop their own facilities.

Hurn, a frequent guest as a small business commentator on Fox Business News, The Huffington Post, PBS and other media outlets, said he knows how small business entrepreneurs think because he is one.

“American small business entrepreneurs bear more of the burden when there’s a recession yet they do more to power the American economy than government, multi-national corporations, big banks and the Federal Reserve combined,” Hurn said.

Hurn believes it’s that entrepreneurial spirit that makes America exceptional. But it takes more than just spirit to make a business thrive.

“There’s no magic to starting a business; more than 500,000 Americans do it every year. The secret is how to grow your net worth, while simultaneously growing your business,” Hurn said. “When you do both, with the strategies I explain in my book, you can literally build a fortune.”

Hurn knows whereof he speaks. So far this year, Mercantile Capital Corporation has closed 75 loans that have financed projects valued at more than $318 million.

One of the nation’s leading providers of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 Loans, Mercantile Capital Corporation financed projects valued at just $174 million during all of 2011.

Hurn said he is already at work on his second book.
