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.
