20+ years of refinement with real projects of all kinds! What lenders & investors want to know Building a business requires more than just an idea and a plan. For a moment (and you may need to refer to this moment often), put yourself in an investor's shoes... What would YOU want to know about a business before you invested in it? We often recommend investing (or imagine investing) in a friend's business just to get the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual experience of investing your precious CASH in someone elses business. Now, more than ever, you must be convincing to the bone. And, expect that intelligent people with money will feel comfortable with you and your answers. You will find that, no matter who you are and what you are doing, youre going to need answers to these basic questions (Next slide): Powered x BizPlanBuilder Your business plan must make sense!

How will you reach and inspire them to buy from you? Who else is doing the same thing and how do you compare? Do you have any strategic partners who will help?

Invitation to Join Board of Advisors
You can buy forms almost anywhere, but if you want a letter intended to attract an intelligent, aware and conscious human being of means, you will have to do better than that. Here is a sample of just one letter we have included to help you attract the people who can help you. For example, having a strong Board of Advisors tells investors that you have done your homework and have people around you who can open doors as well as help prevent mistakes. The major difference between an Advisor and a Director is that a director usually has a fiduciary, therefore legal, responsibility to shareholders. Advisors are there to offer free advice and expertise on matters often concerning marketing, product development, planning and organizing, etc. A good board of advisors adds significant comfort and validation to investors.
