Topics Covered: 

01:23 – What is ‘stranger danger’ foundational principle 

01:41 – Don’t go after strangers 

02:31 – Reasons why you shouldn’t go for strangers 

04:09 – Why you will be crossing the line with SEC when you deal with strangers 

05:33 – Don’t try to raise capital from the general public unless you are licensed to do so 

Key Takeaways: 

“If you’re going out to the general public, they don’t know you from the south, right; they don’t know you at all. So, there’s going to be a lot of natural suspicion about this guy, or this gal that’s trying to raise 5075 $100,000 from them for their real estate deal.” 

“You’re starting from scratch, for people to invest with you, they need to know you, like you, and trust you. A stranger does not know you, probably, doesn’t like you, and definitely doesn’t trust you with their money. It’s a lot of hitting your head against a wall. It hurts a lot; you’re going to be just up for a massive amount of rejection.” – Dave Dubeau 

“Typically, if you are raising capital for a real estate project, and you’re dealing with a stranger, somebody that you don’t have a relationship with, you are crossing the line with the Securities Commission.” – Dave Dubeau 

“If you’re raising capital if you’re raising money, without appropriate documentation without the appropriate licensing, and other choices, you can get an offering memorandum for your deal.” – Dave Dubeau
