What is the appropriate way to approach people regarding investing in my business?

I have designed several products with the intent to patent and sell them over the past 3 years, however patents are expensive and at least two of my designs have been recently rolled out by big name companies.

I could apply for provisional patents but they only last a year from date of file and, I will not be able to pay my attorney to file a non-provisional patent within a year.

Should I file provisional patents and pitch the product to companies to buy me out, or simply get capital ASAP and file standard patents?

I have no sentimental connection to nearly all of my products and don't care about my inventions being bought-out.

Skip the attorney.

All you need to know is that the core of the economy is trust. If people don't trust you, they don't buy anything off of you

If you won't support your products, then why should I as an investor?

My attorney said they'd charge $40 to file each provisional since they're fairly simple, so that's not the issue, but should I file provisionals at all. Non-provisional patents are much more expensive (read 10k range) and my attorney suggested I go to a dedicated patent attorney for them.

That was ambiguous, apologies, I meant to patent them and sell the products myself, not to patent them with the express purpose of selling the rights.

I realize I don't have the ability to manufacture some of them currently, so I am open to selling the rights to some of the more complicated designs to get capital for producing the others.
