OK, I'll be honest with you...

As you can see, I've just come back from a 2+ year hiatus.  In this industry, that's called "online death".  Well I'm back!  Yep, back from the internet cemetary (MySpace says Hi...).  My excuse for not having been around for more than 2 years?  None.  I don't plan to tell you that I was in the Himalayan Mountains where I found myself on a spiritual quest with the aid of a far-and-away guru that taught me how to get rich with just 3 clicks of my computer.  Nope, that's not how it went down.  I was always here.  In my house in Ponce, Puerto Rico.  Living, getting by on my day job as a Medical Dosimetrist (which pays handsomely in the States, but not so much here on the Island).
But I am back, right?  And if I'm back, it must be for some reason.  And actually, it is.  I did find something.  On September 2012, I heard about some startup with a quirky kind of name that was trying to make an impact as a MLM-based MVNO.  Wait...What?  Yep.  That was exactly my reaction in the beginning.  This surely can't be done, right?  Right?  Well, for those of you that are not familiar with telecom lingo, an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) is basically a cell phone service company that piggy-backs on a major carrier's network (legally, of course) and has similar service plans to the 4 major carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint).  The kicker is that, because of lower operational costs, these smaller companies can sometimes provide very similar (and sometimes superior) service plans for their customers at a lower rate; sometimes cutting people's phone bill by as much as 50%!

So where do I fit in to all of this?  Well, in October 2012, I joined that quirky named company called SOLAVEI.  So why didn't I come back and tell you about it inmediately?  Well, to be honest, I didn't think it was really going to work out.  I thought it was just another flash-in-the-pan MLM that was going to jump to a fast start and then crash and burn after taking my hard-earned money.  And I seriously didn't want to have to explain to my friends and family, for the umpteenth time, that the company they invested time and money in (because of me) had disappeared into the night again.  And thank GOD ALMIGHTY, I didn't have to.

Solavei has been THE game changer for me.  I am happy to say that I no longer have a cell phone bill to pay, AND I make an extra couple of hundred dollars every month to pay for other expenses as well.  Nope, it did NOT make me a millionaire in 2 years, but it DID deliver on it's promise to "make commerce less expensive and even profitable."  Solavei really delivers!  And it is basically a good fit for anyone because you can join just for the savings, or you can join if you want to become a Retailer for our service, or you can join as a Brand Partner and become the voice of Solavei in your community and make extra cash every month just by introducing friends, family, or anyone you know to Solavei.

So there you go.  Solavei is the FIRST Social Commerce company on the planet.  Think of it as kind of a fusion between Facebook and T-Mobile (our parent company), but with the opportunity to profit from it's business model.  Check it out for yourselves by clicking here:

How to Finance a Start-Up Company

OK. So you have a great idea for a company and you decide to start looking for a way to finance your start-up.  What now? Well you have to begin by asking yourself some very crucial questions first.  

1. What will the valuation of the company be once you start operating?  It all depends on many things, but generally you divide your initial start-up and operating costs between all or some of your co-founders.  Say you have a company that will have an initial valuation of $100,000 then you would divide that in 6 equal parts or any agreed combination of percentages which usually go for $1,000 per percent.  If I would want a 10% stake in your company, I would need to dish out $10,000.

2.  How much money do you need to start and continue operating for, at least, two years even if your not generating profit from your company?  Normally, this is where you begin searching for a Bank that can give you a Small Business Loan.  For this you will probably need financial statements from all your Co-Founders, so choose your partners wisely and make sure that you are effectively partnering and not just accepting partners because they have cash.  Check out Steven K. Scott's story on how he effectively partnered to create one of the fastest growing companies today!
