Just seen an offer from Hillary on the show and am I being thick or if someone offers 50k for a 95% share in a business basically to buy them out for 2.5k.... As they get 95% of the investment straight back.

Hope those watching ain't confusing this with someone willling to buy 95% of your shares for 50k as they are 2 completely differ. Again I might just be being thick here.

If they asked me what are you going to do with the money, I'd say "I am going to keep it as you are buying my shares."

Its equity contribution really - not that it sounds like many go too far!

So in theory the 50k goes in, gets spent to grow then on exit or other scenario the cash is extracted.

Watched 10mins with the sand bloke, and gave up. Its more x factory comedy than anything else.

The BBC 3 thing with the innocent guy was a let down as well IMHO.
