Does This Sound Like You?

Many clients have told me that their life as an entrepreneur and business owner can sometimes feel like they are in a scene from Jumanji! You know, you’re standing in the middle of wildly swaying and run-down rope bridge. Below you there is a sheer drop onto a jagged rocky outcrop that’s surrounded by croc-infested water. Ahead the landscape looks inhospitable, shrouded in dense fog, too quiet, eerie. You notice there are some planks missing between you and the other side of the bridge, and when you look back to where you came from, it feels safe, welcoming, familiar…? You’re faced with a decision. Press forward into uncertainty and possible danger or turn around and head back to safety.

Another way of summing it up is the quote from John A. Shedd “A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”

The fact that you’re attending this webinar means that you’re on that bridge…you’ve sailed your ship out of a safe harbour and into the open ocean.

The question is…”Are you going to press forward, or return to safety”?

Are you seeking fresh capital to keep your business going while you regroup after the ravages that 2020 inflicted on you, or are you seeking fresh capital to seize a once in a lifetime opportunity to use the solid foundation you’ve created to build a business and brand that will dominate for generations to come?

Let’s do a quick reality check. I want you to read these questions below and note your answers to yourself.

  1. Is your product or service something you are passionate about, something that enhances people’s lives, something that benefits your community, and yet you aren’t reaching enough people?
  2. When you think about raising capital from investors, do you feel a bit overwhelmed at the information overload and contradicting advice?
  3. Do you feel like you could 2X+ your sales if you could tap into capital that was patient, and came with expert advice and help?

Would You Like To Change That?

How many people reading this blog post answered “yes” to one or more of the questions in the previous section? 

Now, here’s a follow-up question.  How many of you reading this right now have a competitive streak in them?

To become or remain competitive, a lot of us have sought outside help at some stage.

When we wanted to look “ripped” or compete in a Triathlon or a Spartan Challenge event we enrolled in those strength and conditioning classes or hired a personal trainer.

Some of us took it a level further and hired a dietary coach.

When we wanted to improve our golf handicap, we bought a bunch of lessons with our local Golf Pro.

And when we wanted to perform better in our role as CEO, we may have sought help to improve our mindfulness, our public speaking skills, our culture and team-building skills etc.

That’s because we knew we had a deficiency in a particular area.

What happens when we think we know something, but we don’t?

Confusion, self-doubt and stress!

For a majority of CEO’s, raising capital is something they think they know or think they should know how to do. In most cases, they don’t.

Therefore, I ask you this, if Fundraising fell into the category of – “something I don’t have experience in or something I really need to become an expert in fast”, what would you do?  I’m willing to bet that most of you would say – “get help”.

When you realise how valuable your time is, and that your daily focus must be on activities that you’re an expert on and make money for the company e.g., closing deals, it makes sense to get help on activities that don’t make money and that you aren’t an expert on, e.g., Fundraising.

Fundraising is my expertise, which is why I want to share an opportunity at the end of the webinar which will allow you to get the capital you need without giving up weeks or months of your valuable time.
