Hi everyone. J.G. Wentworth here.
You know we spend a lot of time talking about cash for your structured settlement and annuity payments to help folks out of a jam. For many people, their structured settlements and annuities are the only large financial asset they have.
But not everyone who wants to sell payment streams from their structured settlement or annuity is in a jam. Some of our customers just want to have fun, or finance the experience of a lifetime.
That was the case with a recent customer, who we’ll call “Simon”. He had a structured settlement, and I guess the regular payments were important. But not as important as a good adventure. What Simon really wanted to was participate in something called the World Cup Trek (http://www.nomadicnation.org/world-cup-trek), a nearly 12,000 mile road rally from Berlin to Capetown South Africa. The drivers started in June with the goal of driving into Capetown in time for the finals of the 2010 World Cup.
To compete in the rally and make his dreams come true, Simon needed cash. And so that’s just what we got him. Even though they never made it to Capetown, Simon had the adventure of a lifetime. You can see a short video about the race at http://vimeo.com/13356974.
To me, what’s important about this story is that we helped finance a dream come true for one of our customers. Maybe you’ve got something you really want to do. Why don’t you give us a call to talk about it? Maybe we can make your dreams come true too.
