Hey small business owners??

How did you start? Is it possible to obtain grants for small business? I used to work for a company in Dallas where I did a lot of windshield chip repair and really enjoyed it. Plus I was good at it. The company folded while I was in Iraq (boss stole 20 million invested by giant corporation) but I have been in contact with the company who supplied us our glass equipment. I only need about 5 to 6 thousand to start but I will only be able to do it part time so a micro-loan may not work for me. Thanks for any info.
Chris

I see you said you were in Iraq....Do you qualify for VA benifits? They have all kinds of loans and there is even this thing they have where they will pay you to retrain into another career field.....Worth looking into. Contact your local Vet Center or look at:
Va Small Buisness and Entrepreneurship

The catch is you have to be a service connected disabled vet. But if when you got back, and you were diagnosed with PTSD...There ya go!

Good luck!

I've started 4 small businesses, 2 trucking companies, 1 detail shop, and 1 body shop.
The detail and body shops I started out of pocket and slowly worked my way up but found out I wasn't particularly suited for working directly with the public, I don't have great ass kissing skills.
The 2 trucking companies Amy and I started with small business loans, they were surprisingly easy to get.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.

I haven't yet. I'm tryingto chase some grant info first. I've found a couple I requested info on, see where it goes. Going with Prosper I'd be looking at about 145 per month paying it back. We'll see.
Thanks
