I most cases it is difficult to find someone who shares the same dreams or vision as you do. Some people don’t have any idea or what so ever about what a business is all about and all they want is to just make some profit especially when they see growth in your company.
I call it a company because when you start attracting investors and that simply means that you have grown out of the small business category.
People of this kind normally choose to be silent partners and usually want nothing to do in terms of getting involved with the day to day contribution towards the business. They don’t even want to be recognised and most cases even sitting in the board meetings, isn’t their intension as long as they get to see the minutes of the meeting. These are the points discussed during the meeting.
