“I’ve read some fun, entertaining, and inspirational books by and for small business owners. But lets face it–they won’t pay the bills…. (Finding Money ) is my choice for one of the most useful books for small business owners…books that give high-quality guidance and examples for doing something.” – Orange County Register
To start a new business or to expand existing one, Finding Money offers practical, step-by-step advice to attract the right investors. There’s plenty of money out there and plenty of investors, entrepreneurs only need to know how to find it. Finding Money can point the way. – Frank Szivos – Editor, Angel Investor News
“Unlike other books full of stories and platitudes, this book tells it straight. After an overview of the difference between debt (loans) and equity (venture) capital and what it takes to qualify, the book provides an in depth look at how to do your homework so you can get the money you need. And it worked for me. If the book has a flaw it’s the no BS, straight to the point style–but that suited me just fine. I’m busy running a business and wanted the meat so I can get on with it, not the relish, and Finding Money delivered big time. Not just who has the money, but details on how they look at you and how they decide if you’re worthy of consideration for funding.” – Reader
