Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get funding for a business with horrible credit?
I am trying to get a business started unfortunately I am $5,700.00 short. I need ideas.
Unfortunately, I don't want to deceive into receiving money.
My friends are pretty much useless (I need better friends)
My family won't give me a dime after I crashed a brand new car when I was 16.
I'm guessing that you're more than $5,700 short. Do you have enough money to cover your personal and business expenses for at least 3-6 months. Not having a Safety net is one of the main reason businesses fail. Try to find investors. Place some ads on Craigslist. Search for other investors on the web. TAKE a PARTNER!! Sell, pawn, or use stuff you own as colateral.
Start on a smaller scale. Outsource. Hope one of these ideas help. Good Luck!!
you need investors & since you've ruled out all of your avenues for getting money: bad credit can't go to the bank, friends & relatives won't loan you money.
do you have anything worth selling?
do you have enough stuff to have a yard sale?
do you have items you can take to a consignment shop?
get a second job.
continue working & saving until you have enough money to start your business.
