How do I find an executive instead of an angel for a financing and working partnership?

I have enough to bring to the table when requesting a working investor. I do not want an angel that will sit back and collect checks for just putting up money. I had many offers for that but declined. I want to find an accomplished executive who has a few bucks to bring in and wants to roll up his sleeves to work alongside me. How can a scope out people like this?

Finding an angel who's also a roll-up-your-sleeves executive may not be as hard as you think. There are plenty of entrepreneurs who just sold their businesses who are itching to get back into the game. One place to look is your industry's trade publication. Trade associations can be another good source. And don't forget the internet--you never know who might answer your ad!
