Everyday I visit I see one world of people that are at a crossroads, experiencing some FRAMA....I made that up meaning Financial Drama, in need of experience. In need of Direction.

They want to get insights from insiders that have been there done that or currently doing that.

Then there is another world.

Someone sold their business for Millions of Dollar$ recently. Someone living on a nice cushion from their previous business ventures.

People with RESOURCES. Not just Cash, but Databases, Rolodexs, Connections, LEVERAGE.

What if there was a system here to connect both these worlds? Helping each other DIRECTLY. Clarification...directly in their business.

If I could have worked for a person where I wanted to be years ago even nonsalaried I would have had a pretty damn good chance or at least a better chance of becoming that person and reaching those heights.

This is just an intro to an idea.

But we have it all here. These two worlds that could surely benefit from each other a step further than excellent advice.

What do you think?

Too complicated? Oversimplified?

There’s a limited number of millionaires. You’re on a forum that has threads by some of them and where you can speak with people who have successful businesses.

Am I misunderstanding what you’re asking about? Is it funding or mentorship?

Hi Mitch,

I think when I was inspired to create the thread I was thinking more of a real business now that could benefit from training someone while that person helped their bottom line and the person gained the hands on experience thanks.

Just bouncing an idea on the wall for thoughts :)

I thought we are already here......?
Hey Minivanman,

Yes we def here and getting great insights and advice already but I was thinking DIRECTLY working with and for someone in their business to gain experience and of course the Business would prosper from the activities performed from that person.

Might be a stretch but was something I enjoy getting feedback on.

What your aiming to do, is construct something along the lines of SharkTank. Where an insider here, that has walked the walk, could buy into a forum members idea as an investor (perhaps) and / or maybe help them with a mudmap, then a plan (mentor) and then follow that with an solid exit strategy, in other words, what do I do now, with my cash reserve..

:) I feel like whenever and however Fire got started you certainly evolved it! Thanks!

I think I was as basic as it sure is alot of people with time and or skills with alot of drive to spare and alot of people that know what to do with people with time and drive to spare that would be mutually beneficial.

Perhaps something along these lines. This is purely an example, but if the right brain-trusts got together, this / or something based on open source code could be implemented as a standalone link through this forum or integrated..

Before Warren Buffett was "Warren Buffett', he offered to work for Benjamin Graham, the great value investor, for free.

Graham turned him down. He told him that free was still too high a price to pay.

Buffet then proved his worth by doing an unsolicited project for Graham.

Then Graham hired him.

If a millionaire is working with a novice, it's typically for altruistic reasons. Not to make money.

Millionaires understand the value of time.

If you want to work with a millionaire, you first need to prove that you aren't wasting their time.

Maybe if you can come up with a platform where novices can prove their worth.

Programmers have things like this. GitHub and Stackflow come to mind.

Bravo. Going to spread that one.

Even Gordon Gekko was happy to get the Cubans but needed to see some ability.

I was thinking about this the other day as well. Like a reverse SCORE, or something, where people with something going on could grab a gang of sidekicks/ protege. It would probably turn exploitative in a week unfortunately.

EXACTLY.
You see the tricky double edged sword as well but true for most things I guess.
