Take a Shot! is the incredible true story of how three unlikely partners - world-famous fitness icon Jake Steinfeld, former Princeton University lacrosse star Dave Morrow, and son of a TV preacher Tim Robertson - broke all the rules and beat all the odds to create Major League Lacrosse. This book will take you on a roller-coaster ride through the ups and downs of starting a business - and not just any business, but a professional sports league built around America’s oldest and most tradition-bound game. Today, Major League Lacrosse is entering its 12th season, and the sport has exploded into the fastest-growing game in the U.S. But it wasn’t always that way... not even close. For four crazy, chaotic years, from 1998 to 2001, Jake, Dave, and Tim faced enormous obstacles and endless challenges in their lonely battle to make their lacrosse dream come true.From the earliest inspiration - Jake’s chance reading of a magazine article that got the ball rolling - to the wild search for investors and owners, to the insane setbacks that nearly derailed the league time and time again, to the emotional and triumphant debut of Major League Lacrosse, Take a Shot! is an action-packed, thrill-a-minute adventure story.But this book is also about friendship under fire.

The new Rule 506 changes everything. The SEC has lifted an 80-year ban on general solicitation. Start-ups for the first time can use public advertising to sell private offerings. The new Rule 506 may prove to be the answer to the prayers of star-ups frustrated with existing fund sourcing platforms. But it also has hidden dangers that will cause many issuers to continue to use the ´´old Rule 506´´ [506(b)]. Among the new Rule 506 strengths: The amount that can be raised is unlimited There is no requirement for review of the offering under any Blue Sky laws (state securities regulations) There is no review of the offering by the SEC Solicitations can be online or offline Solicitations can be made to anyone! Sales (as opposed to solicitations) must be to accredited investors, and issuers must be able to verify that any actual investor is accredited. Also, proposed rules will require issuers to send the SEC all marketing © as of this writing, however, there is no need to send copies of solicitation materials to the SEC (or to state regulators). 1.
