Excerpt from this guide

If you are starting a business, it's your baby.This idea may leave you feeling simultaneously liberated and inspired. But it also has an edge. Specifically, if it's your baby, it's also your obligation to finance it beyond the "I've got an idea" stage. How about the entrepreneur who wants to raise $25,000 from outside investors to start a restaurant? It's unlikely he will succeed in getting people to reach for their checkbooks.

Why not? First, if the would-be restaurateur can't scratch together $25,000 out of his own resources or credit, it's highly unlikely that an investor would view him or her as having the kind of chutzpah needed to make a go of it in the restaurant business.

Second, and more to the point, if this entrepreneur can raise these funds from his own resources but did not want to for fear of losing them, then any investor is sure to ask, "If you won't take a chance on this, why should I?"
