I realize that this is a very unusual question, but let me explain my reason for asking it.
I'm starting a new business with a well-established network marketing company that manufactures an exclusive, world-patent protected line of health products that have an enormous amount of science behind them. The premier product has had over 50 years of research, over 3,000 medical papers written on it and more than 500 doctors endorsing the products due to the patient results they have seen in their practice. More and more doctors are coming on board every day. The product is featured in the Physician's Desk Reference and the National Library of Medicine. Also, the Russian Ministry of Health has approved it's use in all their hospitals, primarily because of the results experienced with cancer patients; which is the first time in their medical history to approve a natural product for use in their hospitals. The company is 9 years old and is now represented in 42 countries around the world. This debt-free company was named the 15th fastest growing privately held company in the country by INC Magazine in 2005 and they enjoy continuous growth every month. This company has been featured on the AMR television program (American Medical Review) and more recently on the TODAY show with NBC News Chief White House Correspondent David Gregory (Nov. 25th).
I mention all of that because I think it would be significant for an investor to know that the "mother" company I am associated with is solidly based and well-founded. I want to build a wellness company of my own around these phenominal products. I have personally used them and have experienced great benefit myself. My mission is to improve the health and quality of life for thousands of people nationwide and around the world.
My challenge is that as long as I am working full time at a J.O.B. I cannot effectively build my business. I believe positively that I can build a million dollar company within 5 years, not only because of the unique nature of the products and their effectiveness, but because of my own abilities. I have excelled in everything I have ever done, winning awards, trips, privileges, plagues, trophies, etc. Now I am working with an IT company in Charlotte, NC. Yet, the business opportunity with this network marketing company shows the most promise of creating wealth.
The reason I'm asking if you think it's possible to procure this small amount of money within two weeks is because I am very anxious to get started before the first of the year. I have worked on a business plan and would like to have my business up and running by January 1, 2008, I'm just not sure how to go about finding an angel investor who would be willing to move on this solid business venture so quickly; say, by mid-December.
Any suggestions? This sounds unrealistic, I know, but is it impossible?
Thanks in advance for your comments!
