Q : In this era of online startups and tech businesses, does there exist the possibility for traditional brick and mortar businesses to raise capital or is it that only businesses with a technology layer to scale up are attracting investors?

A : This is a common question that investors get asked a lot by aspiring entrepreneurs and there are a few different perspectives we have.

Firstly, businesses without a technology layer are going to find it almost impossible to attract investors -simply because technology is what brings scale and efficiency and in many situations access to customers. And venture investors are all looking for scale because that is what will give the exits that we require for our success.

That said, technology in a business does not make it a technology company.

Businesses across traditional sectors like FMCGretail, education, healthcare, financial services, agriculture, transportation, logistics etc. will continue to need brick and mortar or offline elements to succeed and not just technology alone. And there continues to be VC investor interest in businesses in these spaces that are in techenabled andor tech-led and where there is innovation.

Does this mean traditional businesses with or without tech cannot raise capital? They can, but it is challenging.There aren’t that many investors interested and it will likely involve large amounts of initial capital vis-à-vis investing in a tech enabled play.

All that said, tech or brick and mortar, what remains key to success is a strong team, great execution and a product service that is solving a real problem.

“The greatest reward in becoming a millionaire is not the amount of money that you earn. It is the kind of person that you have to become to become a millionaire.” — Jim Rohn

Most people wish their circumstances would magically change for them. They don’t have the desire to become better themselves so they can proactively improve their own circumstances.

Unlike most people, who simply wait and wish for luck, you can seek to become the kind of person equipped with the skills and abilities to do brilliant things.

You can become the kind of person who does highly influential work. Your work can solve pressing problems, improve people’s lives, and get noticed by important people who share your work not for your sake, but for theirs! Sharing your work makes them look good because of how great it is.

The quality of who you are as a person, and the work you do, is completely within your control. But you can’t wish for it to happen. You must become the kind of person who naturally attracts the success you seek.

Here’s how:

1. Invest At Least 10% Of Your Income In Yourself

2. Invest At Least 80% Of Your “Off” Time Into Learning

3. Don’t Work For Money, Work To Learn

4. Don’t Learn For Entertainment, Learn To Create More Value

5. Invest At Least 10% Of Your Income Into Vehicles That Will Generate More Money

6. Shift Your Motivation From Getting To Giving

7. Openly Acknowledge How Dependent You Are On Other People

8. Create Win-Win Strategic Partnerships To Achieve 10X or 100X Goals

9. Set 10X Goals and Face Your Fears

10. Get Really Really Good At Marketing

11. Don’t Focus On Time And Effort, Focus On Results Instead
