    Great quick podcast and this subject has been on my mind lately. Brandon, you mentioned to have a professional way about asking for money from friends and family. Do you know of a template business plan or loan proposal template I could use when presenting the investment opportunity to my family member? I need to have this as professional as possible so they understand I am serious and committed. Again great podcast!
