Now that you’ve established how and where to raise all that capital, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and figure out what’s next.
We’ve seen a ton of people who didn’t know what they didn’t know going in, and wound up screwing a lot of people out of a lot of money in the process. And that’s no good.
So that’s where this episode picks up—with how not to get started in your capital raising adventures.
A sneak peek?
Don’t ask for money if you don’t know why you’ve got a good deal on your hands. If you haven’t analyzed and verified that deal yourself, then you have no idea why or even if the deal is rock solid.
And if you can’t say for certain—from real, first-hand due diligence—then you have no business talking to investors. Plain and simple.
From there, Sal and AJ unpack the best ways to build killer relationships with investors, while ensuring you’re steering their money in the right way every time. Never forget that’s the goal. Never forget that you’re dealing with an investor’s life savings.
And to help you tie it all up with a bow? Sal and AJ are offering TCI podcast listeners an opportunity to score a FREE downloadable pitchbook template worth more than $5,000. Tune in and learn how to get yours.
