Is it possible for profits to exist before a venture, or are they the result of work put into a venture? Once those profits are earned, do they not belong to the individual who earned them? Wouldn't that then explain that I am risking my own money on this venture?
It doesn't really, no. Look at Burt and his crew; they cover up to 25% out of their own pocket. You just sit on your ass.
I'm sorry you feel my questions are incriminating and as such feel the need to ask me to stop asking for clarification, but I will respect your wish.
