My associates appreciated my work, paid me off but didn't want to become part of my company.They cited the poor market as the problem and continued to buy houses to "flip" for themselves. I knew I was on the right track but working with the wrong people.
I have a proposal and not a business plan. It outlines every detail but each entity I have approached asks for a business plan. I still try to find investors for the company who know that I know what I am talking about and can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I'm writing this small article to let others such as myself realize that everyone doesn't see the vision. They like to look at paper and try to judge if the numbers may work. All or a majority of the small business people in the world have learned from gaining hands on experience in the field of their businesses. They have stood in the midst of mistakes and perfection, they have made the picture work. So don't give up; someone out there can see the whole picture and will get involved.
