But that's also the riskiest thing you can do because your cash could be lost." "Capital also means other resources that companies want and need... Anything that you can bring... is capital. And if you're someone who can bring those resources, that capital to a company, you are an investor." "Working above the business is when you are no longer thinking about how do I sell the product or service...

This is an amazing cast from which everyone can take something useful for themselves. But remember that any advertising or marketing advice on how to increase sales should be taken as hypotheses.
