Quote:Real money is not made by ignorant, back-woods, small-town cocky guys in $300 suits. Â Period. Â To make real money, you require a bit of capital, much more than could be easily obtained by the people you describe. Â And to get that capital, all your ducks should be in the straightest, cleanest row possible, and being professional is a requirement, not an option. Â Attempting to come off as clever, or acting in a conniving manner, will get you shut off from that capital so quickly, your only option at that point would be to sell your business to a larger firm, and guess who handles the backend of many of those transactions. Â That's right... the very same guys you came to with your cocky attitude and the poorly-dressed attorney. Â But this time, they know exactly what position you are in, how desparate you are, and will take full advantage (in a ruthless way) of the position you put yourself in by acting like a novice in earlier dealings. And, yes, most real business does happen in NYC. Â At least, the business that matters. Â When you start making real money, at some point you will have to go public, and when you do, guess where you will be headed to find your underwriters. Â That's right... NYC, baby.
