In order to start your own business, you need more than just passion...you need money! This Changes Things hosts Baker Machado and Hope King talk through a few different ways you can raise money to fund your dream business.

For starters, you can go to the bank and ask for a loan or credit card line of credit. You can also request a small business grant from the government. In addition, you could negotiate an advance on services from a client you know is already interested in your work.

However, if you want to do it a little more grassroots style many small businesses have had success on crowdfunding websites. Sign up for Kickstarter or GoFundMe to offer an incentive or product for donations.
