Hi Jacqueline, my name is gordon and i can assist your company in raising funds and expanding your network. you would have a website were people can purchase healthy organic gourmet coffee, tea, hot chocolate, supplements,etc.. and it would be shipped to them with no cost to you. As a personal trainer you already understand the importance of good health and can relay it to your customers, also i have a network associates in your area to assist you. I can be reached via my website and more information will be available. Good luck and i hope to hear from you soon. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hey Jacqueline,

I'm Steve Wooldridge owner of Blue Skies Franchising and I work with people who want to become business owners by pursuing structured business opportunities, which include franchises.

Many of the my clients use "The Business Finance Store". They work primarily with small businesses who need from $20K to $200K in funding. They have several options available and would be glad to discuss with you what would work for your situation.

You can reach them at www.GETMECAPITAL.COM/3853.

Thanks and give me a call at (941) 426-5026 if you have any questions.

You are talking two diifferent optins. A grant is money that you do NOT have to pay back. It is not a loan but a business grant to help you meet your goals, objectives or projects. Something that you might want to give thought to is do you want a loan which must be paid back, with interest or do you want a grant that does have strings. By that I mean tha the grant money must be used for the prupose you indicate on your grant proposal. You must ikeep detailed records where the money was spent, what it was spent for and you will need records of that.
However, with a loan you are not so restricted as to what you spend the momey on, but I am not a big fan of borrowing money during your first year of business simply because it comes out of you profit margin which in most cases is fairly small for the first year.
If you want to discuss grant, that is what I do, research grants that meet your requirements, write proposal(s) for the grant money and walk you throught the proceedure.
If you do decide to go with a grant, please do so with a professional grant proposal writer and not someone who thinks it is easy to write for grants.
What ever you decide, I wish you all the best and just keep on keeping on, it does get better. Oh yes, being a female is an advantage in getting grants as there is a big push on to get more women into private bussiness as owners. I can, or whom ever you choose can show you how to find grants for women owned business.

Hi Jacqueline, Well you have the conventional routes such as Banks and credit unions. However you might want to also consider the new funding methods available.

Here are two, but there are a few more beyond this.

Kickstarter is a business oriented website where you post your ambition and then viewers will pledge to fund your business ambition. If you reach your goal, you get the money, if you don't, no one is out any money.

So where you need to excel is in laying out your project and conveying the reasons it will be successful. If you can do this, you are more likely than not to get funding. If you've already done a business plan than you have most of what you need. Thing is this is really what banks want from you too, so if you don't get funding, figure out why not, make the corrections then apply conventionally.

The other is a simular program but without the goal meeting requirement. Its called gofundme. On this one once you get the first 100's worth of contributions it goes public, till then it stays on your facebook page, etc. but not on main page of gofund me.

Once people donate you can withdraw funds immediately. Gofundme gets a 5% cut and paypay their cut of course. you don't need to meet a goal, but you still need to sell your project plan if you want to meet that goal.

I run a small business resource company, providing websites, business writing such as business plans, proposals, agreements, mobile websites, business graphics etc. And I have used these type of funding mechanisms to help my clients or their clients.

For example for a Alternative Medical clinic I incorporated the gofundme feature into their website to help cancer patients find funding for treatment.

Hope this helps.

I forgot to direct you to our website. Then if you have any questions please use the phone number on the website to contact me. Remember, grants are money you DO NOT have to repay.
We are the Grant Proposal firm that YOU CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO HIRE. Our prices are the lowest in the industry, that is my promise. Most grant writers start at $2500 and go up from there. We are 1/3 of that. And I cannot see you having to pay more than that based on post.

Quick reply! Depends on the time frame and what type of platform you want to use.

I'll suggest you go to be patient for about 6 months and if you remain active in 6 months you should have 2-3,000 dollars or more-your success depends on your activity.

I use this tool (link Above) when people want to join my MLM Business : Organo Gold Coffee and do not have the funds. 6 months later they are calling Ready!

I'm in the business to help others and I love social media! I sell no secrets but I give away information!

If you are a limited company registered with the Companies House in UK, then we can help you get unsecured loans between £ 5000 to £ 250,000. You should not have been bankrupt before and should have good credit rating.
If you fulfill these conditions, then you may contact us and we might be able to fetch you the desired loan in a short span of one month.
Alternatively, if you have the patience to wait for six months, then we could get you financial grants. These grants are generated by investing small sums into this platform (starting from US $ 5000/=).
Capital Enhancement Business Grants are available to small business owners to reduce their current debt and to increase their productivity by providing capital infusion. The grant can also be used for starting a business. The minimum grant amount is $25,000, with a maximum of $2.5 Million per grant. There are no limits on the amount of grants a business can apply for. Acceptance into this program is by invitation only.
If interested, please email to
