I'm a firm believer that you can learn something from anyone.  So last week, when I had the opportunity to discuss a web site project with someone, I decided to hear him out.  After talking with him for 15 minutes, I realized that this was a startup that I simply wanted nothing to do with.  Here are a few "common sense" things to keep in mind when trying to raise capital through venture capitalists (aka angel investors):

Ode to my Jeeps (off topic)

[Edit: This content used to be up on my old site, but I sold the domain and took the site down. Just found the old content on my hard drive...]

This page is dedicated to my Jeep addiction. I'm not much of a Wrangler guy, I prefer the cherokee because it uses the renowned engine and drivetrain from the wrangler but it is more functional to me, with more cargo space and a longer wheelbase. My first jeep was a '90XJ with a 3" rusty's suspension lift that you can read all about on this site. I sold her when she needed to much work to keep street legal, then about a year later i picked up the red one you see above. I have been very busy picking away at her, she needed a new floor welded in just to pass inspection and i have since added the roof-top tire carrier and a new radiator and a few other odds and ends you can check out on this site. Enjoy your stay!

Ode to my first car: 1990 Honda CRX

[Editor's Note: This was on my old web site, which I sold the domain name a few years back. Re-posting]

This is my 1990 Honda CRX si. Originally y-49 Barbados Yellow, I had her painted black and proceeded to get addicted to everything about it - the size, economy, power, and handling. I had to sell it because the rear wheel-wells were rusting out and had already been "fixed" twice.
