But before you start calling them one by one to ask them for money, STOP!
If you do that, you'll suddenly find that a lot of them will run for the nearest hills. What you need to do is spend time building interest. And the time to do that is long before you have a deal that needs funding.
Essentially, you need to start telling everyone you know what you're doing. Having a barbeque with all your mates over, and one of them asks what you've been up to lately? Tell him you've signed up for a property development course. A co-worker asks what your plans are for the weekend? Say you're going to some open homes and an auction, looking at potential property development sites.
You're going to get two possible reactions. First, the person's eyes will glaze over, and they'll rapidly change the subject. These are people I can almost guarantee will NEVER want to be money partners in a project. Make a mental note of their lack of interest, and strike them off your list.
But if the person starts showing an interest by asking questions, talk to them. Tell them what you're doing. Whenever it seems appropriate, keep them updated on how your learning is going, or other things you've been doing in your property development journey. Share success stories, even if they're deals done by other people. Keep whetting their appetite. If you do it in a casual, non-threatening way, then one day you will almost certainly hear the magical sentence "it sounds great - how do I get involved?" And now you have a potential money partner.
Over time, you'll collect a number of these contacts, which means that when a deal stacks up and you're ready to move - magic wand time! Get in touch with all the people on your list, and you're up and running. I know, I know, building up that list of money partners from your existing contacts is going to take time and effort. But it's worth it!
