Personal savings: The first place many new home business
owners look to finance their venture is their personal bank
account. Or other personal resources such as savings bonds,
stock, etc. One entrepreneur, I know of, used her vacation
funds from her regular job to start a part-time home business.
Credit cards: More people than you might think fund their
startup with their credit cards. This is risky, but a quick
way to fund your nifty biz idea.
Friends and family: Many entrepreneurs look to friends and
family when starting up a new business. Often, money is
loaned to the party interest free, which can be beneficial
when first getting started.
Banks and credit unions: The most common source of funding,
banks and credit unions, will consider you a good loan
prospect if you show them a sound business proposal.
Garage sales: A few clever entrepreneurs cleared out
unused articles in their basements or attics and made
quite a profit selling these items at weekend garage sales.
Consignment shop: Clean out your closets. Deliver the clothes
you’ve outgrown in the last few years to a local consignment
shop. Arrange a fair selling price. They will display your
items and charge you a percentage of the selling price.
Sell your stuff at ebay: That’s right! Register with ebay,
the online auction site. Dust off a few of your old Elvis
records, Beastie Boy’s CD’s, or how about that Barbie Doll
collecting dust in your attic. A handsome profit is up for
grabs if you have a hot item.
