Re: “Noncompete Agreements Are Also Nonlegal in California

Hi thank you so much for this valuable info. However I have a question for you. What if the company is registered outside of California (e.g. AZ) but employees people in California? (Not sure if this matters but the company is 100% online without a physical office). Thanks so much for your help.

Re: “A Primer on Medical Marijuana in California

As a patient, I'd like to see it completely legalized. The prices charged are outrageous for an old weed. It should be available thru a pharmacy, since I have a doc's recommendation, as should it be covered by insurance. Believe me, if I took the drugs that the cannabis replaces it would cost my insurance a bundle. Haven't had much luck growing it myself, robbed outside crops and mold on inside. Thank u 4 listening:)

Re: “How to Raise Money But Not Break the Bank


Great article. Thanks for helping us understand why we can't have local investors and what some alternatives are.

Re: “How to Raise Money But Not Break the Bank

Does this mean that you can't give people shares of your startup before you IPO? For example, if you offer someone a 10% share in exchange for doing some work for you, have you just sold them a security?

You mentioned Crowdfunding as an option in the article. If your interested in crowdfunding and crowdsourcing you should definetly check out It’s a crowdfunding site that has had a lot of successes in the past and recently opened up its platform to support business ventures.

Re: “How to Raise Money But Not Break the Bank

Great strategies to raise money. Subscriptions and Pre-sells are excellent ways.

But you can also raise money by asking for specially structured loans. I believe you could structure a loan to be pseudo equity without running afoul of the low. You could structure the loan with very low or totally deferred interest, a very advantageous (to the business owner) payment schedule and also as non-recourse so, like equity, if the business goes out of business, you are not liable for the debt. With this type of loan you would have to offer a way above average interest rate for it to be appealing to investors. But, while you should check with your attorney, I do believe this could work without having to register with the SEC.
