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):

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!

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.
