Hi there,

Welcome to Flying Solo and thanks for the in-depth intro!

What do you mean when you say that you have a viable business? To me viable means profitable, but it seems you’ve always run at a loss (?)

For some reason you haven’t prioritised getting customers (marketing) so far, but if your business is to survive you need to do that now. You need it to generate profit, you need to do it to show that your business is indeed profitable, and you need to do it before getting investment. I don’t believe an investor will put money into your business until you’ve proven how you can get enough customers to be profitable.

Good luck, and we’re really glad to have you here sharing your story. :)

Dave
