              Hi Burk,

              I'm sure your getting a lot of things pitched at you for the money. If you think about it and decide to consider ways for better use of that money rather than to put into a start-up; let me know. You could take that capital and with proper deal structure and the judicious use of some leverage, and acquire a nice company with established revenues and income without having to go through the hassle of a start-up. I'd be happy to discuss with you if you like. Feel free to contact me.

                Burk:

                Congratulations...you are in an enviable position. Not sure how much business experience you have. The great thing about Seattle is that there is great deal-flow when it comes to looking at "angel" type investing.

                I am bringing my third successfull start-up to launch position. I'm in the pre-revenue Series A funding mode currently. I believe I have created a unique business model that is a hybrid within a highly fragmented industry. I have taken the time to research and build a uniquely positioned brand. I have previous success in the space and attracted/build a "been there" "done that" Board Of Advisors". My financial model is profitable within a year as well as scalable....with a proven exit strategy.

                I've soft-circled almost $200K thus far. I have 'skin-in-the-game" myself from both a funding and non-salary position. I'm looking for strategic investors that will close this Series A.....so that we can prove the concept, generate traction and then grow this concept locally, regionally and nationally.

                My financial modeling, based upon previous experience in this same space with a less attractive financial model shows a strong IRR (Internal rate Return) as well as an projected 9X return with a 5-year period.

                If you would like additional information, I'm happy to meet with you, give you access to the secured "Investor Area" of the web site, allowing you access to reference materials for considerations. Thanks for your consideration.

                Regards,

                          Seeker,

                          What ever you decide to do, start a good website and use it to expand your business. A website can be your biggest asset if you focus on making it look and feel professional and legitimate. Also, choose a good web hosting service. I recommend http://www.TheBlueKingdom.com. Plans starting at $3.99 and great online marketing tools for a new business.

                          Good luck,

                            I really hope you didnt give a dime to "Mr. AC Cambric. He has left a trail of investers who are out all of their cash. Just ask his x partner at Maclen- which by the way backwards is NELCAM- or nel for Nelson as in his x-partner Ann Nelson who is owed tens of thousands of dollars and Cam for Cambric- his last name. No one in the Collection field from Fountain Valley Thru Riverside County trusts him . He just keeps moving further and further away so he can continue his charade. I guess his next stop is San Diego Then Tijuana ! If you get any financials- make sure they are audited. Word is he likes to cook the books. Ask his girlfriend- she is his bookkeeper and has lent him$$ to continue operating. Do your homework- get original bank statements and contact #s to his clients... just to make sure he is paying them the $$ that was collected. And when he starts talking about God- he is referring to the Almighty Dollar. Anyway Good luck to you and all those people who may yet fall before his sweet talk.......

                                  Hi there:

                                  We have an interesting concept in regards to a new vodka concept. My partner and I currently run our own marketing company, and we have designed a new vodka concept that we think is extremely marketable and lucrative based on very conservative financials.

                                  I would love to send you a business plan with design turnarounds, but you have to sign a non disclosure agreeement. My email is gregory@off-the-grid.us if you have any interest in launching a new vodka line. Vice stocks are up, and our concept has never been produced before in any market domestic or international.
