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 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.
