    Hey all,

    Forgive me if I haven't followed the right etiquette, I'm relatively new to the forum. However, I'll get to the point.

    I started my business 2 years ago whilst working a full time job and read as much as I could about building a scalable business (including MFL and Unscripted). I learned as much as I could from other people's mistakes. This appears to have proven successful as aside from my own £10K loan to the business which has been paid back. The business done its first £1M after year 2. (end of 2017) Profitable and scaling quickly. So I quit my job last month woohoo! (I had an FTE).

    Since I was quite senior in my sales job, (selling digital tech to markerters) my CEO asked why I am leaving whilst we bumped into each at the bar. I gave him the quick 5 min run through and to my astonishment, he was impressed, excited and said... " He wants to invest!". This is where I need your help guys.

    1. The business feeds itself. Granted if I want to scale quicker or create magnitude I would require investment
    2. He is a visionary and is worth about a billion and therefore has an exceptional network.

    Since I am flying to NY to meet him in 2 weeks to discuss further, what books can I read or where can I study up to make sure I am skilled in having this conversation. I know my business and the financials well, but this will be my first 'investment' conversation ever!

    Sorry for long winded note. But wanted to give the right context. Happy to offer more.

    Joel
