Poll Results: What Has Been the Main Source of Funding for Your Small Business?

| January 7, 2012 | 2 Comments

What has been the main source of funding for your small business? That is the question we asked our readers to see how people are getting the money they need. Not surprisingly the most common response was self-funded. However, “friends & family” which is one of the best ways to get money early on was far behind. Are business owners fearful that they won’t be able to pay back people that they are close to in their life?

What do you think of the results? Are they what you expected?

    Hi Jared! Well suggested about different ways in collecting the funds to start the business. I have already expected many of those ways. I hope this post would be definitely more helpful to new entrepreneurs. Very useful post. Keep updating.

    That is surprising, I always imagined all these businesses got money from their rich parents or family, but it seems that nothing will replace your own hard work.
