Any millionaire will never invest sizeable money in someone that says, "Invest in me, because I don't want to work for a living." And that is exactly what you have written sounds like, to me. You question makes you sound like a rank amateur, "get-rich-quick" artist. You may not mean that, but that is exactly how you came off. You need to work on your delivery, at the very least.

Any investor is going to want to know that you have worked hard to research projects, select the ones that are the most financially profitable and safe, and that you will actively manage the project down the road, to ensure they do what you promise. For you to say you want to invest in Commercial Real Estate, and in the same breath state, "...make money and not working as active business man," is insane sounding.

You need to so some research - a LOT of research, in this market - select a promising project, write a professional Business Plan and THEN attempt to attract investors. Otherwise, you have nothing to sell. So, in short, as much as you hate the thought, you are going to have to work as a business man, in order to succeed in this.

Anything you do would be acting as an "active business man". Do you think investing in commercial real estate is not working? What kind of investments do you have in mind, then? This sounds like someone that has never done any meaningful investment of this kind, before.

And if I were you, and I were looking for investors, the last thing I would do is say, "I want you to invest in me, so I don't have to work!" Because that is exactly what your comment suggests to me. And if I were a millionaire-investor, I would be damned if I would want to invest my hard earned money and trust my funds to someone who says he does not want to work. I would want to know that the person I invest in is working extremely hard to research, select and develop investment opportunities that would make the Company money, and provide safety for my investment. Many times, HOW you say things is more important than what you may mean. Especially if you are trying to sell someone on investing in your projects.

As far as getting millionaires involved, unless you have the background, forget it. Someone that has made his millions will not want to trust his money to an amateur.

But if you think you have the experience and the skill, my suggestion is that you find the properties, develope a concept, write a Business Plan and THEN go after investors. Otherwise, you have nothing to sell to them. Oh, no! That means you might have to actually work!!!
