Question by ..shy<3: How do I go about starting a home based business? What are some grants that I can apply for to help me?
I am interested in starting a home based business, at least home based for now. I want to design and sell plus sized clothing. Do I need a business license? What about financial assistance? Also if its needed it will be located in middle TN.

You will need a state tax ID number for sales tax purposes. If you need a city license you need to check with the local city clerk. Also make sure you can operate a home-based business in that area by contacting the zoning department. You probably won’ get a SBA grant to start that particular business but I’m sure if you asked around you could get a low-interest loan. Good luck.
