A Word about Investors and Getting Them

I see so many posts where people are seeking investors and one of the things that you have to understand is that they will not come to you - you will have to go to them.

While investors do invest their money into your business they do not do it for the "heck" of it.  They will want to see a return on their investment and you are going to have to show them what kind of return they will get on their investment.  You are going to have to show them why they should invest in your business.

Finding investors is not an impossible task but it will be just that - a task!  And the better prepared you are the better your chances of actually finding an investor.

There are still investors, angel investors and venture capitalists around but they just don't go advertising to the world and hopefully you can see why they don't.
