    Any ideas on how to raise money for a startup business?

    Stay at home mom with a dream and no income. Credit? Ehhh I'd rather not talk about it <---which explains enough. So does anyone have any ideas on how I can raise capital for my startup company? Don't need a lot - just a few thousand. All ideas are appreciated! The type of company doesn't matter because all startups need capital - so please don't waste a response with "what kind of company is it?" lol I really could use your help! Thanks!

    Have you ever thought of doing Direct Sales. I am a stay at home mom myself who really needed to make extra income and joined Thirty-One Gifts 2 1/2 years ago. Has really helped my family pay off the debt we have and understand your credit not wanting to talk about it. Thirty-One Gifts has given me the opportunity to make more money then any part time job could and I absolutely love it. If you never heard of it my website is www.mythirtyone.com/loeb and if you have any questions please don't hesitate. My contact information is on my webpage. Good luck in what ever you decide.

    • If you don't have a business plan and 10-15% of the start up cost, forget it. Got lower than a 650 credit score? forget it. My suggestion, find a minimum wage job like the rest of us. You aren't more special than me. I have good credit (680). I have a business plan. I have 10% of the upfront costs. I've been to SBA, banks, credit unions, etc. Nothing. That's the way life is.
