Is Your Angel Investor Really an Angel?

I am pondering over the age-old questions that most entrepreneurs just like myself do. Who is the perfect investor for my business? Is there really such thing? And if there is, how can I find one?

If you are a true entrepreneur and have a great business plan, you can generally find someone who would consider investing in your company. Although you may be desperate for that cash cushion needed to take your business to the next level, there are some very serious things to take into account before looking for your angel investor.

The first step is really knowing what you want out of an investor. Are you looking for someone who is just looking for a return, that will not be too interested in how their investment pays off as long as it does? Or, are you looking for an investor that is deeply vested and holds similar passions to yourself. Of course there is always the happy medium, but how often does that roll around in life. Well business is no different. So it all begins with you and what you are willing to do and don’t do to get someone to give you their money, their time and their trust.

I firmly believe in the law of attraction in regards to having positive energy around my business and myself. When people see your upbeat and can rise up with smile against all odds, that says something about you. People want to believe in someone and want a person that can lead their team home or in this case take a business to the next big step. Its leadership at its best, and so it genuinely begins at our footsteps. Set the intention for your business, visualize the success, believe it and then roll up your sleeves and do what you need to do to make it happen. When you work hard for every morsel of success your business achieves it gives you a different perceptive on things. If you are like me, it will make you think really hard on what you will accept and what you will not. Remember this is a person that could either own a nice chunk of your business or who you will owe a large amount of money too for a good while.


Personally, I am looking for an angel investor that wants to make money but holds integrity over a dollar at the same time. My business focuses on living a balanced natural lifestyle, so my ideal angel investor would be someone who strives in the same capacity. Someone that is money motivated but not money hungry and knows that there is enough to go around.

When you find your perfect angel, it’s like love at first sight. Things just click, you just vibe. They just get you. When something is meant to be, there is a certain ease to the situation. So what makes an angel investor really your angel? Here are some things to consider and know before taking that leap of faith with your angel.


1. Are you looking for a partner or someone who just want to make a quick return on his/her money?

2. Did you want your investor to be involved in the inner working of your business by taking a more hands on approach?

3. How much money do you really need to take your business to the next level?


4. You need a strong elevator pitch for the business that directly shows how this money will make the business successful and give the angel a return on their money.

5. The typical angel investment is $25,000 to $100,000 a company, but can go higher.


6. Early adopters or customers is a big plus.


7. And last but not least, here are a few things that angels look for in business and its founders:

A. The market opportunity being presented with the intention of taking the business to new heights in revenues.

B. A precise and well put together business plan, that can be properly executed.

C. An appropriate valuation with reasonable terms.

D. Commitment, integrity and the passion from the founders.

These are just a few things I have found through meeting and talking with people like myself as well as interviewing couple of angel investors that seem to always come across my path when discussing experiences or terms they look for.

I have yet to found my “perfect match”, one that I feel, can grow old with me and my company. But I know my angel is out there waiting for me, just like yours is for you. WE just have to go out there and get’em! Dream big and big things will happen. I stand by my words and know that with the power of intention and a huge amount of work, anything can be accomplished.


This is a place where intention meets hard work. It is crucial to decide what you are really looking for in an angel investor and what you are willing to do or don’t do to get it.
