Don't get paranoid from the seemingly helpful advice here.
It is good advice to keep in your mind.'
Just remember, no successful person became a success with out risks involved.
My suggestion is to bring in a limited investor.
Someone with absolutely no fiduciary interest.
That will solve the problem.
On a business note. If this is a "real deal"
Please call me.
I have access to money in the millions.
I am part of a joint LLC venture that loans money to business people.
Some of our main client are NBA and NFL players, Costco, Sunwest, many Oil companies etc.
These guys are big dogs.
I don't have the millions but am blessed enough to rub boots with them.
I encourage you to email me and speak with us.
If you can validate enough info, one of us would fly up there to evaluate it further.
BTW, yes there is interest.
That's how we make money..
The good part is that once you debt is paid off, we hold no lot in your vestment.
