Hey how`re you guys?I`m a 19yr. old aspiring entrepreneur from the Philippines and I`m planning to start my business. I`ve got everything in place, all I`m lacking now is funding.I`ve been trying to find ways to raise money without loaning from anyone. I need about Php100,000 which roughly converts to about $20,000 for my primary business. So far what I`ve been trying to do is to set-up a smaller business, whose cost is small and within my current means, which I will use to pay for my bigger business.Is this advisable or not? And if you have alternatives in mind, I`d very much like to hear it.Thanks!

    Youdontknowme,
    You strategy is a smart one... plus by generating your own cash, you will have a discipline and respect for money.  I just encourage you to have your first "feeder" business be in a similar line of work to what your new "bigger" business is going to be.  Good luck with your LAUNCH!
