Here is the skinny; I was working on being business partners with a guy who needed the cash, my credibility within the industry and business connections for more work. I needed his "established" business (even though it was not above water) for a quick start. After jumping through multiple hoops with the variouse finance folks (getting a second mortgage and a line of credit) I am due to close in two weeks. The guy backs out (tonight via email). I do not know if it is a negotiation tactic for more 4 (that won't happen, he already is getting a huge % of goodwill money) and I am tapped. Sad night at the household, I think I will dig out the old guild and boom around the bedroom for while. The business advisor that was guiding us through the process is kinda bummed also. Thanks for listening, Wesley R.
