Robert Tepper, Lead Generation Specialist for Real Estate Professionals, RCFEs in CA and Group Homes & Behavioral Homes in AZ
September 11, 2019, Peter worked directly with Robert who is the COO of their group home business, Care Home Management Co.
Peter is a great connector and networker. When meeting new people, I hear him share stories, experiences and accomplishments that - to an outsider - would come across as so outrageous you couldn’t take him seriously. But having worked hand-in-hand with Peter on a daily basis for the past 2 ½ years, I have observed and learned that Peter is nothing if not honest (sometimes to his own detriment), and the stories have all panned out.
I first met Peter in 2007 when I was the Chancellor at Southern States University and Peter was looking for a University to create a program around the Entrepreneurship Curriculum he had developed. As we were exploring the possibilities, I had the opportunity to attend a couple of events hosted by Club Entrepreneur (which Peter founded), and to learn more about Peter and his accomplishments.
Fast forward 10 years and Peter and I connected again in early 2017. Peter came to San Diego to work on a startup in the travel niche, and asked me to help out with some business and marketing issues. Once we started collaborating, I was fascinated by Peter's big thinking and his resourcefulness. Over time I learned more about him and the 150+ companies he started in his 40+ years of Entrepreneurship.
Since 2017 I have worked with Peter on launching the Entrepreneur Credit Card, Avia Travel Services, an e-Bike rental service, a huge project with the country of Vietnam, BurnsFunding.com and several other projects. Each project we’ve worked on has led us to the next opportunity. Now, we are in the process of launching a business that will eclipse both Peter’s and my own previous businesses, and I am honored to be part of Peter’s team as we leap into the Residential Home Care business.

August 13, 2019, Rose reported directly to Peter and his team at Burns Funding financial services firm
“I am currently in the midst of finishing my BA in Portland, OR and was required by my school to complete an internship to receive my degree in Marketing. Being from San Diego, I searched for a summer internship there and ended up getting hired at Burns Funding financial services firm, owned by Peter Burns.
I started working for Peter at the end of April 2019 for Burns Funding as a paid Marketing Intern and Administrative Assistant. I have had the pleasure of shadowing Peter and his team for the summer and have gained invaluable knowledge and experience in the world of entrepreneurship, start ups, business, and marketing. I was even able to assist Peter and BF in the launch of their new Luxury and Boutique group home divisions in the way of Marketing and Administration efforts.
Working for Peter and his firm has been a great learning experience, and I couldn't have asked for better preparation to send me off into the "real world" upon graduating in December 2019!”

“I recently had the pleasure of meeting Peter Burns, III after searching for funding for my group's medical business in Texas. After many long months of phone calls, emails and forwarding endless documents and financial statements to dozens of brokers, banks and other investors; I was finally able to secure funding for our freestanding Emergency Room in Houston, Texas with the help of Peter and his company, Burn$ Funding. Burn$ Funding came through for us at the finish line when literally no one else could pull it off! Since then Peter has brilliantly connected the dots between myself and his network of contacts and has come up with an exciting new business venture in the Group Home/Assisted Living space that I am honored to be a part of. Peter has endless energy, creativity and a tremendous grasp of the business world from decades of entrepreneurial adventures. He has the ability to pull many seemingly unrelated parties and ideas together and create new and lucrative business adventures. If you get the chance to work with Peter, get ready for an exciting and wild ride!”
Tim Hurst, Owner, Compass Consulting Inc.
July 1, 2019, Tim worked with Peter in different groups
“Over the last 20 years, I have had the honor of calling Peter my friend. Peter is one of the rare leaders that works every bit as hard as he asks his team to. He understands the balance between business, personal development, and how to monetize a great idea. Peter is both a visionary and business colleague with an engaging energy, he is able to create a big vision and then break it down into small pieces so that he can put together a team capable of creating success quicker than anyone I’ve ever seen. Peter is direct in his approach, yet also accessible.
When you present a business idea or proposal to Peter He knows how to connect people to help you achieve your dreams. How do I know that? I’ve personally been on the receiving end of his generosity of time, spirit, and gifted business acumen, and I highly recommend Peter.“

I look forward to the COUNTLESS miracles that are sure to evolve through our collaboration in support of transitioning U.S. military service members worldwide.”

“Peter entered my life quite unexpectedly here on LinkedIn, and I’m sure glad he did! I’d just decided to take my presence on this platform more seriously when a message from Peter landed in my inbox. Within 5 minutes, he and I were on a call and I knew right then and there that there was no turning back - that Peter was going to help shape me to be a profitable business owner under his guidance. He has a lifetime of entrepreneurial experiences and successes, and a willingness to help that I’ve never once seen in this industry. It’s pretty remarkable that within a week of speaking with him, he helped secure me a new client and brainstorm new business ideas. Peter, thank you so much for coming into my life and I’m so eager for all that’s to come!”

George Pauli, NutraMetrix Consultant at NutraMetrix, Market America, Inc.
"I first met Peter Burns around 2005, been so long I don't have the exact year, but it's been at least that. Peter loves entrepreneurism and is truly at heart a builder and connector. When I met Peter he was establishing a "Club E" which was an incubator for startup businesses, any and all businesses. Peter put together regular monthly events where like minded people got together and shared, some did business with each other and others we remained friends. It was a fantastic experience for me as a young semi-seasoned entrepreneur.”
”Since 2005 I would sometimes reach out to Peter, he remembered me, he opened up his contact book to help me, with no reciprocity, just open heart to help. He has helped me more than once in the past, for that I was able to move forward and accomplish my goals a little quicker, thank you Peter.”
”Peter today is still a go getter and has a larger heart than ever. I recently reached out to Peter in early 2017 for some reason, don't know why, but summer 2017 I was looking for something specific. During the conversation I asked him "do you know anyone who is in the ..... industry" and he says "yes" so I introduced him to a friend / business guy of mine named Jerry, and in the past week or two these two guys have put together something so amazing, their combined efforts will help new entrepreneurs grow a business faster than ever in many ways never seen possible.”
”My hats off to Peter Burns, long time business colleague and friend. Peter Thank You from the bottom of my Heart!"
