Limited Capital

This past month I realized firsthand that having limited capital means that you're limited to
opportunity, and how difficult it is to obtain more capital without acquiring unnecessary risk.  I'm working on a couple of products that I'd like to get funded...but unfortunately, my capital resources are limiting me from taking these products to the next level and getting them to market.  So this forces me to think creatively to get around the problem of simply not having enough capital.

On the contrary, I realize how easy it is for a particular person with a large amount of capital to have a world of opportunity at their doorstep.

"Having money is not everything, not having it, is." - Kanye West

So how does one acquire more money, Mr. West?  I suppose the answer would be to take advantage of the opportunities and talents we naturally possess, take risk, and build relationships.

The more important of these is the latter.  Building relationships with people who may be more connected to resources than you currently are, is key.  You build relationships by getting to know people and connecting with them.  Acquiring a relationship means you possess the oldest currency on the planet - forever in circulation.  The more "strong" relationships you possess, similar to having a "strong" currency, the further you'll go in life and more you will accomplish.

Just a thought.
