How to Fund Your Cart When You
Don't Have the Start-Up Funds

Dear Friend,

This email contains a creative method for getting the money you need to start your cart or kiosk, even if you don't have the funds, and you can't raise the funds through more traditional methods.

In an update sent earlier this year, I wrote about how I helped one of my salespeople who was short on funds open his own mall cart.

After I arranged for this salesperson to open, it occurred to me that there might be other people like him that also could use the help to open their own cart.

I placed an ad similar to the following in the business opportunity section in the local paper:

"Made $114K at the Mall Last Xmas. 
Expanding.  Seeking Partners w/ lots
of time and little money. 612-605-1115"

I got a ton of phone calls, and ultimately helped three more people open a cart that season in the Minneapolis area. And split the profits with each of them.

Most of the people that called needed the financial help to get started. "...lots of time and little money." Those were the people I was looking for.

But I got a lot of unexpected calls as well. About a quarter of the responses were from people who had enough money to get started, but weren't interested in operating a cart themselves. 

They were looking to put up the money... and have someone else do the work... in exchange for a share of the profits. 

Here's the point of this email...

At any given time there are LOTS of people willing to put up the money you need to start your business.... in exchange for a portion of the profits.

To find them, you have to do a little outflow.

If you are in this situation, here's what to do: Place an ad in the business opportunity section of the local newspaper similar to the following:

"Starting Xmas Mall Kiosk. Looking for
a partner. If you put up the cash. I'll do
the work. We'll share the profits. $15K
needed. Call Brady, 612-605-1115"

Advertise in your local paper, on Craigslist online, and any place else that you think might be appropriate.

You'll get calls. From people with money to invest.  People that are willing to help you get started. You just have to agree on an equitable split of the profits.

How much you share of the profits is up to you and them. Typically the split will be a function of how much cash you need, and the kind of deal you are able to negotiate.

The less you need, the lower percentage of the profits you'll likely to have to share.

If you don't have the cash on hand and don't have access to funds in any other way, advertising for an 'investor' is a solid way to get the money you need to get started.

You give up a portion of the potential profits. But a percentage of something, is often better that 100% of nothing. And you get to get started in business, when you might not be able to afford it otherwise.
