Angel Investors: Partner Up by Conquering Your Money Anxiety
Show Notes

Rarely do women deal with the monster that money is in their heads. What is the money monster? Listen as business consultant Olivia Jaras takes us through an exercise that uncovers your feelings about money. Until you start owning how you relate to money, you will have limited success with funding your business and approaching investors.  

Olivia strongly recommends reaching out directly to those who could be an asset to your company and creating partnerships. Partnerships are more than just money; they’re also resources and connections. Rather than directly asking for funds, approach potential partners with your mission and values. Angel Investors are more likely to invest when your business supports a cause that resonates with them.  

Tune in to learn more about how to talk to investors, connect with incubator programs, and obtain grants. Be sure to check out one of Olivia’s favorite books, Happy Money to start unravelling money anxiety.
