How to Raise Private Money with Ray Gonzalez [Ep 33]

This week on The Flip King CEO, Joe Evangelisti welcomes Ray Gonzalez, a friend from many Mastermind groups, to talk about raising private money. Ray tells Joe about how he raised $110,000 just from one phone call before coming on the show. And as he says, it’s not about the opportunity so much as it is about the person. Ray says not one lender has ever lost a dime when putting money into one of Ray’s projects, and so making the lender feel like they know, like and trust you can make all the difference. And of course, doing right by them, as well. Ray is a goldmine for this type of information, and if you’re looking to raise a little capital, you have to listen to this episode.

When it comes to private money, play the long game

So much of what Ray says on this episode of The Flip King CEO is so important for anyone at any stage of the game to hear. But if there’s one big takeaway, it’s this: Play the long game. Make the right deal for the lender. Don’t try to nickel and dime them, make a deal that is a win-win for both sides, and they’ll come back to you again. You need to learn the people who are investing with you, learn what makes them tick and what they want so that you can build a good relationship for both of you. And you need to have the mindset, as Joe says, of protecting that private money like it’s your children.
