Fundraising recommendations – Venture Capital Cafe
 
  • Thought I would share this valuable good info.
  • Group: Venture Capital Cafe (+6200 Members)
  • Subject: Fundraising recommendations

Hello VC Cafe group members,

I’ve been contacted by several members who are asking for assistance in fundraising for a web startup or a mobile app. I’m writing today to share my recommendations with all who have enquired, and with the broader group.

A few recommendations on fundraising:

1) Put your startup on AngelList – if you’re on to something solid, you should have no problem getting noticed by the top guys. Best way to get noticed is to be referred by a member – let me know if you need help with that (angel.co)

2) Spend $19 and treat yourself to this course on raising capital for startups and what to include in your pitch slides. This online course by Naval Ravinikant will give you the structure you need in any fundraising presentation http://goo.gl/iqHt0

3) Look at other examples – recently launched PitchEnvy has over 20 recent pitch decks that raised money!
http://goo.gl/seHE2

You are of course also welcome to visit VC Cafe for additional startup resources: http://www.vccafe.com/ . Please do feel free to contact me with these types of enquiries in the future – I appreciate knowing what you are interested in, and am happy to share recommendations.

Best,
Eze

EA CPE Courses With The Fast Forward Academy
 

It’s perfectly natural to assume that as soon as we have passed our exams and qualified for whatever profession we have chosen for ourselves, the formal teaching and hard work is done and we can breath a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, for a lot of us that simply isn’t the case and in order to progress and remain completely up-to-date in our chosen field of expertise, we need to maintain our Continuing Professional Education (CPE)

This is especially true of the legal profession, where things can be constantly changing and Enrolled Agent CPE is not only important, but also crucial. Fast forward Academy is a leader in Enrolled Agent CPE and offers a huge range of online courses that deal with all aspects of taxation.

Each and every course is registered with the IRS, as is the company itself that has been recognised as an Approved Continuing Education Provider which is proof of it’s quality and worth.

Courses typically start from $15 an hour, (although selected free courses are always available) and they all come complete with a 30-day money back guarantee and free pdf’s should you want them. Also, the more courses you buy, the greater the discount that can be offered.

Perhaps the most useful course in satisfying the necessary EA CPE requirements is the ability to undertake highly realistic ‘mock exams’, such as CPA Practice Exams to Simulate the Real Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination (2012). Not only can you benefot from the necessary courses, but you also get a realistic means of testing your progress.

If you are a Quality Enrolled Agent and need to maintain your CPE, make life that little bit more straightforward and visit the Fast Forward Academy!

Need A Costume? Get A Bargain!
 

Unless you are some kind of social recluse, at some point in your life your will be invited to a party. It might be a family affair, a work related function, perhaps a charity fundraser and the dress code could be anything from smart-casual to black tie. Then again, if you are really lucky…..it might be fancy dress! As much fun as this can be it opens up a lot of problems. Do you make the outfit yourself? If so have you got the time, creatvity and talent? Do you buy a ready made outfit? If so do you go for a budget option, or a high end costume and do you have the funds to finance what could be a one-off wear? Get it wrong and you could be the butt of the joke for some time.

The Wholesale Costume Club can take the stress out of getting exactly the right costume for you with over 20,000 costumes and accessories at wholesale prices.

You can choose to become a member for free, (at present a free one year membership is on offer with the promo code SAVENOW) or if you’d prefer to remain unattached you can also buy as a non-member.

There are no maximum or minimum orders

There’s a flat $5.99 shipping fee no matter how big your order is

Members can enjoy a whole host of benefits including super low SuperBuy Prices

Whatever you need the costume for, and whatever you want to dress up as, if they don’t have it at the Wholesale Costume Club, the chances are that it doesn’t exist!

All The Data You’ll Ever Need
 

I often hark back to the good old days and wonder what happened to the things I used to take forgranted, the things that I valued as important and the things that I assumed would carry on unchanged forever. One of those things was the professional car mechanic, a man, (sorry ladies, but it is my rememberances) who had the talent and skill to look at a car and work out what was wrong with it, but fixing it for me. Nowadays mechanics are undoubtably still skillfull, but a lot of the hard work has been done for them as computers link, diagnose and even fix the problem with minimal human input. The handier amongst us might even have the talent to make the repairs ourselves, but who has the computer diagnosis software at home? I’m willing to bet, not many of us!

Now you can at least have the next best thing as ALLDATAdiy.com gives you the industry’s leading source of online factory diagnostic and repair information used by 200,000+ automotive technicians everyday. ALLDATAdiy.com offers you access to the same information used by the professionals as an easy to access VEHICLE SPECIFIC subscriptions.

A one year subscription will cost $26.95 for the first vehicle and $16.95 for each additonal vehicle, but it is subscriptions taken over five years that see the real savings, with costs of $44.95 for the first vehicle and $29.95 for each subsequent vehicle.

Finally we can recapture our youth, work confidently on our vehicles and save a boat load in the process!

How to Be Money Smart in Your Most Toughest Times
 

Many Americans go through added anxiety and stress about their financial future considering the expensive cost of living, increase in consumer debt, decline in retail sales, and falling property prices. All these factors together are affecting the economic health of the nation. Money is the only thing on the minds of most of the people in America due to all such reasons.

It is very important to become money smart and learn money management techniques to face tough economic times. The following are five ways to avoid financial difficulties during rough times:

Get Rid of Debts

People are often reluctant to pay for discretionary expenses when they are paying in cash. But since it is easier to pay back the money, people go reckless using plastic for discretionary purchases. Using credit cards and other form of loans is the first thing that should be eliminated. Keep your credit card for the purpose of emergency only. Look for different debt settlement options and get rid of your additional payment every month. Make higher repayments to wind up your card without paying excessive interest. Also note that expenses for personal interest are not tax-deductible and therefore will not reduce tax liability.

Get more information and debt advice at the Consolidate Credit website.

Follow Strict Budget

To follow a strict budget, it is essential that you design a very strict and detailed budget as well. Figure out your total income and assess how much you spend every month. Apart from this, highlight things and activities that are necessary and cannot be avoided. This will help you realize how you can reduce your monthly spending. Perhaps you may forgo eating out at luxurious restaurants and other expensive entertainments. Obviously, this will require a lot of patience and discipline from you, but the results will be worth the sacrifice. Construct a proper budget and carefully analyze what you can do to control your spending without taking a wrong decision that you regret in the end.

Safeguard Your Job

Stay enthusiastic and engaged, keep network operating and stay high profile. During economic down turns and financial crisis, it is very important to protect something that you have. Therefore, safeguard your job by performing your duties and role in the best possible manner. Make yourself visible and show the enthusiasm to become a part of the team. Value yourself and analyze how much you produce or save for your employer.

Stay updated with the latest trends and developments, continuing technology and education in your respective field. Become visible by participating in at least one local professional organization. Your connections will safeguard your job and will also help you find another one in case you lose the job. Being a part of a local professional organization, you can immediately rely on the professional network with your new job research.

Diversify Your Portfolio

You can deal with the risk of financial crisis and loss on investments to a great extent if you diversify your portfolio. Many investors who were entirely dependent on their stock market investments are still sitting and waiting for the time to reverse since 2008. Do not make this mistake. Instead, create a diversified portfolio and take into account the potential rewards of profitable investments as well as the inherent risk of the market. If you are retired or are near retirement, the time horizon shouldn’t be a constraint for you. On the other hand, adopt a more aggressive approach if you belong to a younger generation. Seek assistance from a professional adviser for a diversified portfolio as well as useful suggestions on debt settlement. You can also collect more information and debt advice at the Consolidate Credit website.

Keep Up With What You Possess

Look at the latest economic development and learn your lessons. Admit that you can’t rely on escalating home prices and bull markets for the security of your future. Make sure you have enough knowledge about the appreciating and depreciating nature of assets that change with time. Make sure you are secure with emergency funds to help you get through tough times. According to financial experts, it is ideal to keep saving reserves that can help you survive up to six months without a job. However, if you are not comfortable with it, do whatever you can.

Professional advisers may guide you best on these areas. Explain your personal situation to them and you may get better recommendations.
