What kind of strategy should I lay out to continue growing?
I am currently running a 1 year-old construction business that's renovating the St. Louis area. The business generated approximately $100,000 in 2007 (gross) and I am looking for ways or available funding opportunities that will enable me to expand. My goal is to hire at least 2-3 full time employees (currently using subcontractors) and I would also like to offer a benefits package to them over the next 12 months. The business is coming in, but I am reluctant to take on too much if I cannot hire the help I will need in order to complete the tasks. What kinds of loans or programs are available for women in this field who have already started a business, but are growing and looking to expand?
