I just want to have my own website where I sell products that I manufacture using CAD software. I'm trying to look three ahead because that's supposedly how long it takes for a business to start earning. I've only saved a few thousand dollars. Should I be looking into loans and grants? Where are some good places to get started? It's a for-profit business, and all I have is the design for the website, my drill, and my skill with CAD. I'm terrible at making websites, so one of the main things I worry about is the expense of having someone build the site. Another thing I am worried about is that I will be selling almost exclusively online. I already sell out of my house, but it hasn't been very profitable because I haven't been advertising.
If I'm to take out loans, I feel like I should have more prepared than what I already have. I'm worried about being denied or getting a really bad deal.
