What is your plan for next year?
Now that 2011 is about to end, it’s high time to make some new year’s resolution and plans. Like the rest, I also have habits that I want to change, goals that I would like to achieve and places that I want to visit in the coming year.
As for my financial goal, I am planning to start a new business next year. I’ll venture on selling some merchandise online and I might even set up a buy and sell type of site so that other sellers can also market their products in it.
Even though I still haven’t put up enough money for financial capital for the said business, I am aware that there are lots of financial assistance programs available to entrepreneurs and business owners here in the US so I’m counting on the possibility that I could obtain some type of small business grants either from the local government agencies, federal government agencies or major corporations.
If you also have a plan to start a business or expand an existing one but don’t know where to start looking for grants, just ask around or check with the government agencies about financial assistance that are given to small business entrepreneurs.
Don’t forget to also search on the internet. Sites such as BusinessGrant.org lists some opportunities, resources and news about small business grants.
Don’t let the lack of capital to stop you from doing what you want. There are lots of agencies and groups that are willing to help. You just need to be resourceful.
