    I've told close family members and friends and they like the idea - but I want to go to an expert and actually pay him to hear the entire thing and give me his opinion before I get invested in this. I saw some gigs on Fiverr that offer this but I want a little more quality than that.

    Anyone know if any websites or services that do this and that won't steal my idea?

    Why would you ask your family members, friends, or a random person for advice on a business idea? What makes them qualified. They will probably bring you down. It's like going to school to learn how to make money, how is a $50k/yr teacher gonna teach you how to make $1mil a year. If your parents don't run there own business, why would they be able to tell you to do so? Your jobless friends, or working for minimum wage?

    Just food for thought :).

    So what am I supposed to do? Just run with an idea full blast without getting feedback first?

    I have an MBA and have started 3 companies since graduating college. If you would like an honest evaluation PM me and we can talk via Skype or through email. If you would like me to sign a NDA that won't be a problem.

    No, but I can show you how you can quickly and cheaply test your idea to see if there is an actual market for it. Within a week you will know whether or not your idea is worth what you think it is.

    Lol... Prime example of why not to disclose your full idea to anyone. With a little tweaking your idea and process can become someone elses. Am not inferring that your idea and process are good enough to be stolen lol. But if it was and its right up someones alley they will take it and tweak it. You might as well just post it on here. lol

    Contact a venture capitalist company
    make sure you write them down before you go and post the idea in a registerd letter to yourself

    They will pull your ideas apart
    if they willing to invest you got a good idea

    If they are not
    go back to the drawing board and improve it

    It doesn't really require a lot of money to start up. It will be self funded. I don't really need any VCs
