LOOKING FOR CAPITAL TO START YOUR BUSINESS? READ THIS: By Arise Arizechi

READ THIS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR CAPITAL TO START YOUR BUSINESS
Before any sensible investor can invest in your business, he wants to see tell-tale signs that you can run a business and create value.
 Investors want to see what you have done in the past:-
The products you created
The services you provided
The problems you solved.
The gap you closed.

Good Investors want to see your track record before they give you their money.

Even a Mentor wants to see your track-record before he agrees to invest his time in mentoring you.
So the question that follows is this – How am I expected to have a track record when I am just starting out as an Entrepreneur?
You heard the answer in the video yesterday. Permit me to put it this way:-

If you want investors to invest in your Poultry farm idea but you have no experience in the business of chicken farming, start by selling eggs.
Grow an egg-selling business until you have a record that shows you are successful in selling eggs.
Create your own MVP.

The truth is this – It is easier to get poultry farm funding for someone who has a track record of successfully selling eggs,
Than for someone who has no experience whatsoever in chicken farming business and is waiting for capital to come before he starts.
So what is the bottom line all this?
Stop waiting for capital endlessly.
Find a point in the value-chain of your desired business and start from there.
Start with what you have.
Start small.

And never despise the days of little beginnings.
Tomorrow, I will tell you another reason why this is so necessary.
Do you have a vision for a business but money is holding you back? What can you start doing today?

Arise!
