Dream a Little Dream…
I started a business plan yesterday. It’s an idea for a business that Jenny and I have kicked around recently. It is such an exciting idea and I know it would work. There is a big need for it in our area.
The main monkey wrench is a big one, money. Money for the upfront costs and to meet our personal bills once things get started.
Right now, it’s a dream. But as I walked out of work feeling yesterday physically ill, I realized I need something to keep going.
Those of you doing your own gig, how did you finance your start-up costs? Did you take out a loan or find investors? What finally gave you the courage to take the leap? Do you have any advice or lessons learned?
