Be careful Dandy. As a sharer in your market, I feel like I understand your customers to a degree. Mine are similar and honestly, I like the majority of them. I’m glad they are wealthy and find some of their stories intriguing.
That said, people in your neck of the woods aren’t giving out money without sizable expectations for themselves. They are smart, well heeled and motivated. They can also be ruthless when money is involved. I’d be hesitant to risk a good relationship and reputation with outside influences.
Watch “The Founder” and you might rethink any type of investment.
