What are the myths surrounding raising private money?

Why did Max choose private money over institutional money? What are the risks involved with raising private capital?

If you’re looking to get into raising private money, or you’re searching for the resources to help you advance in your business, this episode is for you.


Highlights from the interview

  • “Active income is great, but that ownership is really the balance sheet.”
  • Max and his partner have raised over $50Million, and have a 100% track record of paying people back.
  • “Leading with value is never going to go out of style. Building relationships takes time and there’s really no substitute.”
  • “During the downturns, the people who make the money are the ones who have cash or access to cash.”
  • “Private money is a superpower.”
  • “A great life is about lots of great choices and lots of great options. Money is not the root of all evil, in my opinion. I think not having money can be the root of all evil because when people get really desperate and their money is tight, it forces them to make desperate decisions.”
  • “The more risk you take, the higher your upside is.”
