A Conversation With An Investor

During the weekend I had the honor to go along rock climbing with Chris Francy (Owner of Edge Fitness and a registered investor).  He actually pushed me to do my first lead at Red Rocks Canyon.

Below is a list of what investors are NOT looking for when it comes to pitching an idea:

1) Asking for too much money for broadly described purposes.

2) Asking for a salary.

What investors are more open to:

1) Asking for about enough or even less than what you really need.  This perks their ears up.

2) If you get the attention of even one investor, you might get more from the same group.  If you don’t have anyone on your side to begin with, you are basically out of luck.

This may be common sense to some but investors are still pitched ideas where these points are vastly ignored and it is unfortunate that the presenters will miss out on their chances of getting funded.

Life?  Life is hectic because I purchased 3 cars within the span of 1 week (for the business).  2 of which were not intended to be purchased in such a short time frame.  I am in the middle of training another worker.  Life is also enjoyable because it is filled with doing whatever I want whenever I want.  I am lucky to have my health, my family, and a boyfriend who understands me.

Fun times.

The Battle For Sanity

I want to comment on this common female struggle: the battle for sanity.  Given how we are all afflicted by the tides of various hormones not to mention the annoying obstructions to these tides randomly provided by pills, implants, and insertions all for the purpose of controlling birth – I see it fit to voice my observation after hearing about the relationship woes and confusion this struggle brings.

Men?  For the most part they do not need to fight this battle for sanity.  In relationships I have observed that they are usually calm.

So to maintain the semblance of a healthy relationship I’ve discovered that this battle must be fought and won on a monthly basis.  90% of the battle is internal and won with the aid of releases in whatever form they may be.  But left unchecked and especially left underestimated, just rolling over and giving in to the ultimate female excuse to be emotionally volatile will lead to disaster.

Even if it is through a pained grimace to mask the true nature of your maleficent disposition – it still must be done.  Maintaining any long term interpersonal interaction involves the maturity to bite your tongue and try to resolve everything with the coaxing sweetness of something honest yet silver all at the same time.

Because even if you have your demands and your needs – voicing dissatisfaction towards any individual reduces their ego and a person with an uncomfortable ego tends to be less open to promoting your personal happiness.

It is wise then to not get careless with vocal deliveries.  That created moments of unease leaves a sour uncompromising aftertaste for everyone involved.  That happiness is really about letting go of the things that do not matter all too much.  Some recent turn of events and my mail lady (married 42 years) refreshed me of this truth because that is how you consistently win your battles for sanity.

In other news… an update on my current situation.  Sales, without any real money spent on marketing/advertising, have gotten comfortable enough for me to provide for all my expenses thus far.  I am past my 10th car and I am past being uncertain about the future.  I am not as gung ho as I would like to be but that’s only because I prioritize having a life over not having one.  I’ve learned to let go of a lot of stresses even though stress is an inevitable part of the daily madness.

To keep my sanity for the past couple of months I galavanted in the following activities:
