Past Performance is No Guarantee of Future Performance

Posted in Uncategorized by Devon on February 9, 2009

It’s early September, the kids are back in school and the New England nights are cooling. I am still struggling to put all the pieces of this evolving business model into place to form a solid story. My 3 main goals are to publish a labor exchange for equity framework to build an executive team with minimal cash, publish a report and agenda for our upcoming board meeting (yes, we have a board…), and make a list of potential angel investors.

Lessons Learned/Questions to Ask
1. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance!

a. Do you really think that just because you’ve been successful in the past, investors (who don’t know you) will flock to your new unproven idea?
