Buffett said: Now give you your right to buy a 10% stake in a classmate until the end of his life. Would you like to buy 10% of the rest of the students which one?
You will choose the most intelligent of it? Not necessarily. You will choose the most energetic yet? Not necessarily. You will choose the official second-generation or second-generation rich it?

I mentioned above this story, because around a very interesting thing happened. Friends T monarch met a few friends to engage in game development, they engage in a game ready to set up their own company's own operations, but suffer from a lack of investment, looking for a half a year did not find investors. So pull T monarch occupation, prepare together to find investors. T monarch with their years of personal connections, and soon found a large group of investors willing into the capital. In fact, this project is not big, it was only a few million of the total size of the investment group that house is a very very small projects, but they have not been engaged in before the game, so be prepared to try the water.

You, as an investor, you dare to sign such a contract it? Investor fears that come and go. You at the last minute middleman foot kick, prepare their own food to eat alone, you are capable of this thing, the other thing you will dry out, since you this person is not reliable, you have much less specific ability, skill, and not important because anyway, not in conjunction with your cooperation. In fact, investment cast and team is the most important thing is reliability, followed by the professional skills. No level can also spend money to hire more people, if the person is not reliable, it is completely out of the way.
