After all is said Family & Friends tend to be the first place most people turn to when they need general help or business finance. Yet if this process is not managed well, it can result in long term tension, unforgiveness and heartaches.

In reality, it does not need to be that way if certain guidelines are followed. This will ensure that emotional upheaval and disagreements are completely removed and individuals can enjoy good relations with family are friends whether or not the business works out not. For surely, as we journey to success there are challenges to overcome.

In my effort to help entrepreneurs obtain the funding they need and still keep their relationships I will cover the following topics:

    -Determining the type of finance being sought

    -Advantages of borrowing from family and friends

    -Disadvantages of borrowing from family and friends

    -General guidelines

    -The Agreements to sign

    -The Business Plan to present

    -What to think about

My hope is that as you embark on this course you use the information to raise the money you need and still keep all your relationships intact!

Who is the target audience?
  • Any one who needs financial help for their business
  • Those who know they have family and friends that can help them get started
  • This course is useful for those writing a business plan for the first time
  • Anyone starting in business

The Best Yet

I am reluctant to say a course is the best on Udemy because there are so many different courses covering many different subjects approaches etc. OK. Well for this course i am going to put discernment before my principle ! This course is probably the best course on Udemy..phew there i said it ! why? Because it covers the fundamentals of life of growth in very simple step by step way. A lot of common sense here..but don't sniff at that...commons sense is not very common. And to find a teacher of this calibre who has a way of making you sweat: (and smile) Truly a gift what a heaven sent course this is - by Paul Soffe,
