    Network investment opportunity

    Ok, as I'm getting ready to expand the Network there is a hell of a lot of things I want to do to make the most of it.

    I've had guys contact me over the past year about investing or buying the network and up until now I've turned them down. I'm reconsidering that position.

    Basically, if you are interested let me know and I'll send you an NDA. Don't waste my time for curiosity purposes. What this would entail is buying a set % of equity in the network and when it sells (goal 5 years from now or sooner) you get that %. This amount to invest is relatively small, nothing huge, no 6 figure anything. The % can easily appreciate quickly though making for a potentially large return. This isn't open to multiple parties, one person, that's it.

    I have an investment portfolio put together for those who inquired but I'm not about to show it to everyone. If interested, the payoff is potentially big, and the risk is small.

    Ok moved this back. I'm going back and forth with this. Part of me just wants to say I can do everything myself as I have thus far and part of me knows swallowing a bit of pride and using investment capital will get me where I want to go likely faster and even further.

    I guess we'll see.

    I could be potentially interested Sticky.

    Let me know if you fully decided to go through with it. It seems as if you're REALLY on the fence about it. lol

    So basically you're looking for potential investors that can receive a non-voting/decision making stake in the forum. What are the "benefits" to investing? Like monthly PayPals of surplus revenue split evenly (or proportionately) among the investors, increase Rep Power/Admin privileges on the forum, etc etc?

    I believe the benefit is you buy a percentage now and Sticky sells a few years from now, you get your percentage back. You'd be betting on the network increasing in value by then so you'd make some money. I don't think he's prepared to give you much control of the actual forum.

    It's explained quite clearly it is a % stake. That's it.

    Yes and the person has the option of opting out as well by selling their % right back to me with interest. Win-win.

    Hmmm... Now this isn't something you see on a forum, atleast I haven't... My curiousity is piqued...

    My Only concern would be, if lets say hypothetically the investor gets a bad rep or has a falling out with the Forum or you (Sticky), are you still going to give them their fair share, buy them out plus interest and/or 'auction' off their investement portion to the other investors?

    If him and I don't like each other or whatever it really doesn't matter it's business and there is a signed agreement we both have to follow and that is that law. I can't just change things on the fly based on emotion.

    This is really simple honestly. Somebody is just buying a % of the forum essentially with the option of selling it back for guaranteed interest if they like. That's really it.

    I just want to build to what I have in my head and when I do I think everyone will be quite pleased.
