Im wondering if someone could help me.
I am looking for business advice.
I have been employed as a dog groomer for 15 years, whilst my children were toddlers I temporarily worked as a groomer from home, but for the most part I have been employed by big pet store chains. I injured myself at work back in January and although my workplace has been paying me work cover, they have now announced me as a liability and have ceased my employment.
I would like to start my own grooming business, but financially this seems almost impossible. I am a single mother, I rent and am not allowed to work from home. I am also not able to go mobile due to only having a small car and not very confident towing a trailer. I have been offered the use of a shop, but I would need to buy all the tools, and I can't find a financing company that will help a start up business with no assets to secure the loan. I have worked out that $8000 will get me everything that I would immediately need.
I have thought about going down the second hand route, but I live rurally so not a lot of stuff is availablelocally, and I also don't have spare cash laying around to buy stuff like that.
Can anyone help or offer some advice?
