No matter whether it be through business, finance, or a combination of both, it is important to find out what works. You should seek to meet with potential investors to establish an understanding on a variety of topics, including:
Your business plan, including how much profit you wish to make.
Why you want to be in business and what your goals are.
What do you want to make from your venture, both personally and for the company.
Your financial future and what you intend to do once you are financially independent.
What are your plans for business expansion?
How long will it take you to turn a profit? How will you be able to scale down or diversify?
How long will it take you to pay back your loans?
How long will it take until you actually make money?
How much will I need to invest to make this a success? What if I don’t make my own money?
How quickly will I be able to repay my loans?
How do I determine my personal financial goals and how to be ambitious about reaching them?
How do I keep my business costs down and be sustainable?
How do I plan for the future?
How can I get out of debt? How can I make more money?
How do I make more money?
And so much more.

Hundreds of people have taken to the streets of Havana in protest over the treatment of political prisoners in the US.
The gathering in the city’s Puerta del Sol square coincided with the US embassy’s reopening.
President Raul Castro is due to visit the island next month.
“For years we have seen the US as an island of injustice and injustice,” said protester Raúl Castillo.
“Today we are calling for justice and peace,” he said.
The US state department condemned the demonstration, as well as “all unjust and unlawful actions taken by the Cuban government”.
