GRANTS AND POSSIBILITIES
You can always go for business loan and there are ways you can find someone to invest in you. It might be a family member or someone who believes in you. Grants are a really fun thing. A lot of people thinks that grant is about getting a lot of money to make massive change in your organization.
There are lots of grants out there available to businesses even if it’s small business recovery. Grants will help your business back up and running. The grants are available for people to actually do good whether in it’s business, community, or family.
HOW CAN YOU USE THE FUNDING FROM THE GOVERNMENT?
One thing we have to remember is when government wants to give us money, we apply for grant. Take time to look at the grant and apply for it because there is money out there.
HOW CAN YOU USE THE MONEY TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS?
It’s not only about getting cash flow but it’s also about and growth. When you’re looking at the two different funding opportunities, you can say, you actually want to grow your business in a different sector.
There’s also specific grants available for people who just want to investigate whether or not something is possible. Some of these grants actually go up $50,000 just to spend a year looking into and search an idea. There’s also grants which are 3 to $5,000, which are far more regular. Some grants require you to provide receipts and proofs. Most grants will say, tell me how you’re going to spend the money. At the end, they’ll ask for a report of how you spent the money.
Grants writers can write pretty much any grant, they might just take a little bit longer to do it. It depends on the size, amount of research, complexity of the grant and the volume of information they need. It’s a skill or a process that everybody should at least try once.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX, HAVE A CHAT TO THE PERSON YOU WANT TO WORK WITH AND SAY, “HEY! WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN KIND OF WORKING WITH ME ON THIS?”
