OK well it’s slightly past my bed time but I have news. I talked to my prospective investor today and she told me she has five or ten thousand to invest. The catch: she wants me to draw up a business plan outlining everything including her possible return on investment.
I’m a little over my head here on the business plan thing, but that ten grand could really get me set up pretty nicely in my little room. So if anyone wants to play “what if” with me, my space is basically 9x9 and my build budget is possibly as much as ten grand…
I’m now faced with the task of figuring out just how to maximize production in this space and developing a pie in the sky numbers sheet showing how much profit I can eke out. As it’s all just conjecture, I think the main goal here is to make it look at least somewhat realistic.
So I’m asking for any and all help that I can maybe get on this task. I would love to hear people’s opinions on the best medium for this grow, the best lights that I can afford, nutrients additives anything you have to offer slap it down. Right now the important parts for the business plan are build costs and projected yields. To figure build costs I’ll have to get off my flippy floppy ass and decide on a medium, which will probably be some sort of hydroponics, and lighting at the very least.
I know there are a lot of variables here, and there is no real way to say but the lady actually told me that most business plans are total BS and best case scenarios in a perfect world. She’s a friend of the family who I am told was the first person that held me the day I was born. She wants to help me get off the ground, but also wants to see return on her investment.
