11/15/2021 Tip: The 10 Commandments for Raising Money

Today’s Quote

“I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.”

Today’s Tip

This week I will be giving you the 10 commandments for raising money. Let’s get started…

RULE #1: Don’t be naïve. Don’t post your business plan or idea online hoping someone will magically fund you. This virtually never works!

RULE #2: You and your team are much more important than your business or business idea. Investors and lenders bet on the jockey (you/team) and not the horse (business/idea). As this relates to Rule #1, virtually no one will invest in you without meeting you face-to-face (Crowdfunding is an exception to this).
