default A heads up why I am so absent of late

Post by Adrian on 22nd July 2013, 11:23 pm

I'm working on a new venture, well an expansion of the current one, but busy sourcing the seed capital for it - between that and the kids and the farm, my life is exhausting, but fulfilled.

I am deeply indebted to Dandelion for taking on running the forum for us

Anyway, this is a link to my new project - I certainly am not asking for anyone to contribute, but spreading the word would be awesome

Have been wondering about money making schemes (!!) - I don't know whether it's against the law to sell some kind of shares in the business, but could you do something like this? If someone pays a nominal sum (say $20), then this entitles them to a couple of laser cut cards when you have the machine up and running later on. It would have to work on a trust basis, among friends, but I'd be willing to give it a go.

Yes, because its not a floats company, the selling shares business can be a tricky legal minefield - I'm also wary about things like that. A friend of mines father did the same thing, spent his life pouring everything into his project, then a new shareholder came onboard and got the rest to gang up on him and forced him out - he lost everything, but the worst was the loss of his project.

So for anyone who's interested, how do they go about contributing?
