Say Uncle

Millions of dollars in financial resources go untapped each year because entrepreneurs don't know they're available. Get in the know with William Alarid's latest edition of Free Help From Uncle Sam to Start Your Own Business Or Expand the One You Have, filled with government resources and case histories where Uncle Sam's deep pockets made big differences for small businesses.

After a pep talk reminding us that, as taxpayers, it's our money we're applying for when we turn to Uncle Sam, Free Help provides quick tours through how to begin your quest for funding; where to find free, in-depth business counseling; and how to locate economic research tailored to your region.

Uncle Sam himself could become your best customer: Each year, the U.S. government buys a wide range of goods and services. Free Help shows you how to gain easy exposure for your product before a host of federal agencies.

The true entrepreneur is a bit of a gambler, writes Alarid, and knowledge is the ace in the hole. Free Help's bountiful information can give you the winning edge by revealing some of Uncle Sam's best-kept secrets.
