How to Start a Business from Home When You're Strapped For Cash
Starting your own business from home is one of the best ways to
get out of the rat race. But many entrepreneurs who've already
made the decision to start their business from home are
strapped for cash. Lack of startup money holds you back.
As the old saying goes, it takes money to make money.
Even though businesses you start from home are less expensive to
get off the ground, they still do take some cash to get
started. Many entrepreneurs find themselves stuck between a
rock and a hard place. They know they need money to make
money, but they don't have any. And if they had the money,
then they wouldn't need to make more money.
Fortunately, options do exist for entrepreneurs in this
The US Government has quietly created several programs designed
for entrepreneurs looking to start a business from home. These
programs include free business training courses, free
consulting services, business loan programs for entrepreneurs
with problem credit, and free government grants.
These programs are designed to promote economic growth in United
Here's why the government likes these programs and how you too
can benefit from them.
The government helps you start your business. As your business
grows and succeeds, you'll need to buy all kinds of products
and services. This includes everything from office supplies to
computers to accounting services.
As hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs across the country do
this each year, those office supply stores are now making more
money. Not only are they paying more in income taxes (which
the government loves) they are also creating more jobs.
As the office supply company grows, it buys more products from
office supply manufacturers. Now the manufacturers create more
jobs to handle the demand. The whole process repeats itself as
the economy grows and more jobs are created.
Everybody wins. Companies across the board hire more employees.
These employees spend more money doing business with local
companies (who need more employees to keep up, etc...). Of
course now that everybody is making more money, everybody is
paying more income tax to Uncle Sam - so he's happy too.
These business growth programs are very popular with politicians
- because they pay for themselves.
The problem with these programs is they are not well publicized.
The government actually reduced the amount of money for these
programs because not enough people used them - mostly because
most entrepreneurs don't know about them.
Grant programs are awarded directly to businesses through local
city and state governments. Contact them and ask about
"economic development" programs in your area.
These programs generally are for large dollar amounts $100k+
and require a fair amount of paperwork.
For smaller businesses, programs have been set up by the
federal government. These programs are designed to serve
a wide range of entrepreneurs with everything from free
services to financial packages.
To assist entrepreneurs in finding these programs, a free report
has just been published that helps entrepreneurs find grant
programs in their area. You can request a free report that provides the information you need.
