Topic tags/keywords: question

I recently posted a topic about Investors and had little response. I’ve also posted on other sites and had no luck either. It seems as though you have to be established in order to get an investor. If I were established I wouldn’t need an investor. I’d go to the bank if I needed something. So, with that in mind I am now having to do work that I’m not familier with, and in turn, can’t do other important work that I can do. Some of that work includes making “how to” videos that I will be incorporating into my website. The reason I’m posting here is because I am seeking permission to use videos already taken. What I am looking for is a video or videos that takes you step by step through making a cabinet. NOT furniture. A cabinet. I am looking for a video on a Framed cabinet and on a frameless cabinet.
I’d like there to be instruction on the process of setting up the tools, cutting the material, and assembly of the entire process. If I can’t find good videos, I ask that if you are a cabinetmaker in Orange county and have a job coming up that I could video that would be great. Let me know.

Might not be easy to find investors for website based businesses nowadays especially with tough economic times and flaws in Web business (free service with revenue by advertisement) showing. But hey, even Facebook and Twitter have trouble making money, but people will still invest if they see potential and see that you have a solid plan and vision.

I hope you’ve got your Powermatic saw back by now. Still, try to make the video with you doing the work. That would be a bigger sell, and an asset when you start making/selling cabinetry later on. With the internet, knowledge is plentiful and devalued, it’s your instruction and presentation which adds value. You yourself is what makes your website special and distinctive and differentiate it from the masses.

Sorry for rambling on in your thread, I am neither an investor nor a cabinetmaker and I am in Canada. Good luck in your endeavour.

Thanks guys. I can make the videos, but it would be taking to much time away from doing other important things that need done. I am going to be making a website, and have to do so without knowledge or finances. Since I am going to be spending my time learning that, I won’t have time to make the videos and was hoping to use someone elses. But, I suppose it’s just another thing to ad to the “to do” list.

if you need a web site made the cheapest way i know is to ask a local student to make one for you as a project one thing i learned is the kids of today know computers better than me so go ask they can only say no and you could find a media student to help with your tutorials

thats what i would do anyway hope this helps mate

ps: as for things thats happening to your work stick with it mate its going to get better soon ok

good luck

andy

With the amount of info posted in the other thread, i doujbt if any one will respond. It will take more than just saying I have an earth shattering idea. Today, most people who had any “investement” money in the markets saw half of it disappear. The days of venture capitalists jumpiing on anything with .com on it are over. Good luck. Topamax Survivor

I’m more then willing to share the idea with anyone willing to sign a nondisclosure agreement or a similar form. The problem is that there are a lot of smart people here, including web developers. If there is anything I’ve learned in business this far is not to trust anyone. SO, earth shattering or not, it doesn’t change the fact that I need “how to” videos.
I’d have to say that I would respect no answers as opposed to negative responses. I read someplace that one important way to start gaining wealth is to get away from negetive people, and put yourself around positive people. The atmosphere here is always so negative. I have a reason to be negative because of where my life is right now. Chances are that the answer I’m looking for would and should come from a positive person, someone that isn’t dead in the water like me. If you’re in my situation you don’t have the answer, just negativity.
It’s so funny to see responses where the people are trying to kick the chair out from under the person standing on it. I’m hoping that when the chair breaks there is no neuse this time, and I land on my feet and walk over those who was kicking the chair.
I know how the economy is, how everything is suffering, etc. It doesn’t mean that we can’t all stand up, dust off, and move forward. With these kinds of attitudes the recession will continue, and we will all be headed for a “Mad Max” generation.
I really do respect everyone answers and opinions, but like I said, negativity doesn’t help me at all.

You are sure right about one thing, when it comes to money, the majority cannot be trusted. What I have seen in the last 25 years in business is most don’t really care what the law is, only what they can get away with. I have been accused of being the only honest contractor in the area many times :-)) but I’m not your investor, so it doesn’t much matter here.

Have you checked out youtube ? Just search for the topics that you want.

I would just suggets that you review the videos and the poster’s channel (other videos) and web sites (if they have any) carefully, make sure they align with what you want to do before you try and contact the posters.
