And if the SBA officers can't help you get the

loan, they will provide ample direction and resources

that will prove invaluable in other aspects of starting your store.

THE TRADE-OFF

There's a definite trade-off

when turning to any of these

outside sources for funding.

The Entrepreneur who gets the

money must surrender some

autonomy in the process. Investors, partners,

angels, and lending institutions bring their own

expectations to the project, driven by their need

for a return on their investment. Building a successful

retail operation is a long-term project,

but some expect financial rewards in the short

term. That often places unwanted pressure on the entrepreneur at a time when the challenges

of the start-up store will breathe enough discord

into your life.

GETTING THE WORD OUT

Finding outside sources to fund your retail

dream from paper to storefront takes consider

able time and effort. When you decide you

want to take on a partner, bring on investors,

or could use the help of an angel, tell everyone

you know. Request assistance from the local

chamber of commerce, business development

offices, the Small Business Administration,

merchants' associations, local trade organizations,

and any club you belong to. Business

schools share a new sense of responsibility to

help their graduates and the business community

at large and can prove ideal networking

centers.
