[E4C40] The Keys to Finding & Attracting Your Ideal Investors – Launch! – Scott Duffy

E4C40 The Keys to Finding & Attracting Y our Ideal Investors - Scott Duffy


I have to recommend a book that every aspiring and early stage entrepreneur needs to read, and that’s Launch!: The Critical 90 Days from Idea to Market, by Scott Duffy, our guest on the show.

Scott is an entrepreneur, consultant, angel investor, Founder & CEO of The Launch Project™, a company dedicated to helping millions of entrepreneurs launch new businesses, products, and services, while remaining competitive in today’s entrepreneur-based economy.

Scott began his career working for best-selling author, life-coach, and motivational speaker, Tony Robbins; worked for several early-stage small businesses which went on to become household names such as CBS Sportsline, NBC Internet, and FoxSports.com; and founded the private aviation online booking tool, Smart Charter, which was later acquired by the Virgin Group. In addition, Scott has spoken at the NYSE, and provided commentary for numerous media outlets including CNBC, FOX News, & CBS Radio.

Scott’s on a mission to help one million plus entrepreneurs in the US launch and grow their businesses and make their big idea a reality. We also discuss the best ways to raise capital, the excuses people make which bar their way to success, and Richard Branson’s plans to buy the Amazon rainforest!

In this week’s motivating podcast, you will learn about:

  • Scott’s journey to entrepreneurial success, and the one really important lesson he learned along the way
  • The defining traits of high-impact entrepreneurs, and what separates the successful ones from those who continually struggle
  • How to play it big without burning out, and how to get over that point when you reach the end of your tether, and feel like throwing it all in
  • How to discover what your unique core competencies and skills are, and what you should do with that knowledge
  • The one simple thing you can do to turn a six-figure business into a million-dollars-plus
  • The keys to finding and attracting your soulmate investor
  • What the biggest mistakes are that people make when seeking investment capital, and how to avoid them

This Wordpress Theme is Powered by Genesis Framework

Genesis Framework for WordPress

I've built dozens of custom WordPress websites using both free and premium WordPress themes. If I were going to do it all over again, I would have built every single one on the Genesis Framework.

Genesis Framework is not only easily customizable through Genesis hooks, it's search engine optimized and doesn't break with each core WordPress update. Instead of burning up all my precious entrepreneurial time dealing with never-ending bug fixes, I can now focus on marketing and monetization.
