In preparation for Small Business Saturday, this week’s podcast is an interview with small business owner Ross McGarvey and his experiences building a business from the ground up—without a lot of outside funding. After having met Ross, I’ve come to associate the idea of bootstrapping with the way he started and built his business. I think you’ll enjoy the candid and honest description of what he did as a recent immigrant to the U.S., with no credit, and nothing but the will to succeed.

It takes a little cash to change the world.

So what are you waiting for?

Hi, I was wondering if there is any way to get funding for having a small lucky bamboo store in a flea market..have no credit..started this business as I lost my job about 5 months ago…I am lost with no one to go to for advice except a passion to be my own boss dealing in plants as that was what I have been doing for the past 7 years.TQ.
