Can I make money off of a "newsletter"?

moneyfilter! I have a website that I started a while back hoping to "monetize". Well, I got lazy, and gave up. I was going to start a newsletter in conjunction with the site and never got around to it. But someone found the site, and the newsletter sign up page, and wants to distribute it to their clients (it relates to their brick and mortar business). The company seems legit. Can I turn this into a business opportunity? [more inside]

How do you acquire a business line of credit using equity in a commercial property as collateral?

I have recently acquired a commercial property. I want to obtain a line of credit against the down payment I put on the property. Obviously, I have not done this in the past. But, I envision the transaction being similar to a home equity line of credit. Is there anyone out there that can point me to the right direction. FYI, the commercial property was acquired via a new LLC of which I own 100%.

How can I leverage my potential business partner 's interest and solidify a business idea?

Hello. Here’s the lowdown: I’m the senior sound designer / managing director for a leading international sound library company who’s been successfully running a company that doesn’t belong to me for 6 years. I’ve exhausted this opportunity, as the company is limited in its ability to grow due to the owners methods. In short, although I still have my job (and could have it forever, so to speak), I need to get out. I’m striving to create an opportunity for myself (and potentially for some of the other amazing employees I’ve hired who are looking for better opportunities) by starting a new company, and I must act now as I am not getting any younger.. I’ve been thinking this through for almost 6 months now, and something seeming great has just happened. Can you help me make the most out of it? [more inside]

Where to have my oil paintings printed?

We are beginning a small business and need recommendations for a commercial to reproduce limited copies of original works of art. Credibility in product and dealing is more important than cost. We will also need business cards, posters, post cards, polo shirts, and tee-shirts down the line. Our preference is the Portland, Oregon area, Seattle works too. We can work with a UPS/FEDEX set up if communications are great. Thanks, this is a key piece to our inevitable success!
