    Hello I'm Portia and I wanna find ways to make money at home and also looking for someone who wants to invest in my idea or buy my logo, I live in Florida and I have 2 kids. It's hard to find a sitter you can trust and afford so I'm trying to find ways to make money at home and work for myself. I'm amazing when it comes to marketing and advertising. I'm experienced when it comes to computers and I have an idea that can make millions with the right partner or investor!

    I would suggest start with reading Making Money section for start...You can also create BST make and sell logos here if you are good at it..
    Finding investment can be difficult I am open to hearing your idea but can not promise anything..Good luck anyways :)

    Never give out your full idea to these people.... I have had a lot of ideas stolen from me because I told the wrong people. Good luck with your venture and I hope nothing but the best for you.

    thanks and i dont know how to tell anyone because of that. My boss is a small bussiness owner and he is one of those guys that stretch the truth to look good, anyway he said he has trademarked the name and hes paying monthly because we havent used it. He decided the we are going to make a website and sell tshirts with the logo then expand from tshirts to all types of men and womens clothing and acssesories. My part is custom made jewlry because ive done well makinmg and selling jewlry on ebay before. I know it sounds like just another idea everyone has but the name and logo is the seller. The idea wasnt for tshirt in the beginng it was for a cannabis dispensary and a plan to move to colorado and be residents for a year so we were ready by the time it was legal. My boss had me meet an investor and almost a year ago swore we would be moved in a year with living expenses paid but time is flying and he hasnt had me show this investor a presentation. I find it odd that someone is willing to invest millions without even meeting me. Is there a way I can find out if he really trademarked the name? he took our social security numbers but always gets mad saying i dont trust him when i ask to see proof. I have plenty of proof that its not his idea if he trys to use it for himself.

    So, you've got a million dollar business idea hey? Why not start a crowd funding campaign online? Put those amazing marketing and advertising skills to use. See where it takes you. Then tell us about it, (Forum rules permitting, of course).

    In my experience, an investor or venture capitalist won't invest a single buck in simply an "million dollar idea". They'd rather the founders start the business, look at the co's income statement and cash flow statement and put in their own capital on the table, just to dilute the investors risk. Also VCs take a large equity stake out of your company, with the real risk of the founder becoming an employee within their own company.

    No doubt, it's definitely tougher being a fulltime mum/business owner. But there are many and will be many that do, for example take Julie Deane, whom started the Cambridge Satchet Company with just $600 and the fierce determination to send her kids to private school, after her daughter was being bullied at school. she's now the owner/CEO of a multi million pound fashion bag global empire. Truly inspiring journey and person.

    Don't hope for an investor with millions of his/her hard earned money to hand you, just not going to happen.

    Personally, I do invest in start ups (less frequently now) I have never or will never invest in an concept idea (unique logo etc). Companies are normally at least 24 months into trading, with the actual growth and projected growth I personally look out for.

    Just start it, no excuses...

    Thanks and yes I agree which is why I didnt trust what my boss was saying nor did i depend on it. I can start small and work my way up with my determination I know I can make this happen. I have been doing research and ive spent alot of time creating the logo, plans for my website, ect so im ready to get the ball rolling. I have given bits and pieces of my idea to a few very close friends that own small retail shops and they want want my logo in thier store. Ty for the advice im open to any adcive i can get.

    Like it was said here, create BST's, read threads, follow journies...do cpa..cpi....try it all. You can learn a lot here to make money by your own. it may not be instantly but if you work hard enough you will get there without having to tell your idea to nobody.

    If your boss often stretches the truth to look good, you should take that into consideration when it comes to this situation. Some people lie just to keep good employees hanging on and doing work. It's happened to me. They promise lots of things with no intention to follow through.

    Anyway, welcome to BHW.
