You should make another separate post and tell us a little about what you have been doing to market your business so we can offer some ideas.

We have been putting out flyers and talking with people and giving out our business cards.


I would also like to know How do you come up with a financial statement for your business plan for a start up business?

What are you looking for your financial statement to do for you? Could you simply write down what you are looking to spend on what expenses? Or does it have to be more complex?

It has to be more complex more like a projection of income earned for expenses, overhead, and payroll. Whatever I need in order to get a grant or loan.

Well ultimately what are you needing to get started? Could you start with more simple pieces of equipment where you wouldnt need a grant or loan?

What's your view on that?
