Before I give my situation, I would like to say thatI am so glad I stumbled upon this site.... I have learned a great deal from those of you who have been there done that I am fairly new to lawn care, but have decided after apprx. 4 months that this PROFESSION is what I want to put all of my energy into and make a great living. My question is, I am going to try to get a government grant/loan to start my new small business. There are books out there that say they show where/how to apply for these grants. Have any of you guys/girls attempted this, if so, succesfully? I looking to get enough for new equipment, etc.
