Please answer the following questions:

How would you respond to a potential investor who asks these questions:

1. Why should I give you the money? You have no proven track record. I can go out and find someone who has already done this and has proven that they can do it.
2. How do I know you are not going to lose interest?
3. What are you going to do when a competitor sees how successful you are and starts doing exactly the same thing?
(Note: These are questions that I have actually heard investors ask.)
