Every millionaire’s business has hit hard times as mine was doing then. Knowing that hard times are part of the deal and realizing that the hardest times usually precedes the best times, when your success has grown to the point that it demands extreme infusions of capital, expertise and infrastructure to take it to maximum velocity, is what Angel investing is all about.
I had a private audience with five of the key decision makers prior to the general meeting, further evidence, in my mind, of just how golden I was. I had only met this group six weeks ago, and here I was, about to close the deal.Boy, Was I Wrong!
Just weeks later after being told I was on a collision path with failure, I put on my own version of a “go-to-hell” outfit to make my presentation to a society of millionaires, whose sole purpose in life, I thought, was to hand out money.
I got into my car and drove to my bank as my CFO had commanded. I was going to show my banker this P & L with the glorious little highlighted number showing I made money. I had just sold over two million dollars worth of product. I knew she was going to give me another shot.
She was the wife of a Southern Baptist minister, so I believe that God put her in my life that day for a reason. She lifted me up and showed me that things aren’t always what they seem, and that angels can reveal themselves to you in the darkest and most unexpected places.
