Become an investor
If you are interested in helping me in my pro golf journey, I have created a business plan where you can earn money from my golf. I will give 100% of my winnings to you, up until you have earned your money back.
I don’t earn a single cent until you have all of your money returned. Once I earn 100% of your money back, the excess amount I earn from then on switches to 25%(investor) – 75%(me).
Investors will have the option of buying shares of me, each valued at $5,000 per share (maximum 16 total shares) . This will allow investors that buy more shares to take a proportionately bigger potion of the excess tournament winnings.
I receive a total of $15,000 in investment from two investors. Investor A bought 1 share, Investor B bought 2 shares. I win $20,000 in tournament winnings. Each investor is returned their original investment and the excess $5000 is split 25/75. So $1250 is allocated proportionately between the investors.
Investor A is returned their original $5,000 PLUS $417
Investor B is returned their original $10,000 PLUS $833.
The contract term will terminate when I reach $0 after using up all of the investment money due to tournament/travel expenses. Once I have used up all of the money I will distribute the money back to the investors accordingly.
Investors will then have the option to reinvest with the same amount, invest with more/less, or choose to not reinvest.
I receive $20,000 in investment, each investor in with 1 share each. I win $30,000 from my tournaments. I give back the investors 100% of their initial investment. With the excess $10,000, it splits 25% – 75% which would be $2,500 allocated proportionately between the investors.
So each investor receives $5,000 PLUS $625 each. Contract ends when I run out of fundraised money.
I receive $15,000 in investment. I struggle and only win $10,000 from my tournaments. I distribute the $10,000 accordingly back to investors and I keep $0. Contract ends when I run out of fundraised money.
Why Am I Doing This?
Of course I would love to earn and keep all of the money for myself. But I don’t have the luxury of having very high expenses with no guarantee on returns. If I can crowdfund while giving back money to my donors and earning a little bit on top if I have a decent month, that’s a much better method for me in the early part of my career.
