My favorite business guru and my motivation kickstarter is Tim Ferriss. His break the mold thinking is key to breaking through to the next level of success. My favorite startup tip of his is, ” Don’t be the low-cost option”. WOW how smart and helpful this has been to me this year.
I am sorry to hear about your situation, although it is fairly common. Here is my list of FAQ answering many entrepreneur’s questions – Should I Sign a Personal Guarantee for a Business Loan?
That is great advice on the many ways to finance a new venture. Most of my small business clients struggle with startup financing, so I compiled lists of 17 Proven Startup Funding Sources and Small Business Grants for Women. Hope these help Lakisha!

Prior answers were about how to get paid traffic, so I will suggest some free and low-cost ways to get traffic to your new website. These tips will get you traffic more quickly than SEO, which is a long-term marketing strategy.
Social media, both posting on your own profiles and joining groups and boards, can generate highly-targeted, and profitable, traffic quickly. Most industries and cities have dedicated groups or networks on popular sites such as Facebook and Linkedin. Join in and participate by giving value such as your expert advice and information. Give first – sell later for best results.
Another way to get referral website traffic is to post answers to questions on popular sites such as Quora and Reddit. Remember to be generous with your input and light on sales copy. Recently I posted an answer about a topic in my niche which has generated substantial traffic within 2 weeks – at no cost!
Also, you could collaborate with related, but not competitive, sites to offer contributions of articles, often called Guest Posts. Most webmasters welcome high-quality, and useful content to offer their readers. Include a link back to your website.
Good luck to you.
