Funding Resources

for Small Businesses

What are the Rules to Winning the Funding Game for Small Businesses?


 Throughout the many years I have been coaching entrepreneurs on how to find the funds they need for their ventures, I often thought of how similar business funding is to playing chess. In chess, you have to learn the abilities and limitations of all the different chess pieces. As you move each piece, you have to strategize to stay a few steps ahead in anticipation of getting to a checkmate. The same with the Funding Game, if you do not know the capabilities of all the different players and if you do not have knowledge for maneuvering through the process, you are likely to be frustrated, and ultimately, defeated.

 3 Rules You Need To Know To Win The Funding Game:

 Rule #1  – Know the rules of the Funding Game.

Rule #2 – Understand the players. 

Rule #3 – Create a strategy to play the game right.

 Today, I want to share a gift with you!

I have created a no-cost Target Funding 101 workshop where I can teach you how to find the hidden money. The grants and resources that you need to support your dreams. I will teach you everything I learned over the last 18 years of being a Funding Game expert so you don’t have to struggle as much in building your business. I am hosting a FREE workshop next Thursday via Zoom at 6 pm PST. Let me know if you want to join our awesome workshop and I can send you the zoom link via email.

In her new book, Kedma Ough shows you how to zero in on the funding you need to start or grow your business or to bring your invention to market.

Kedma is an amazing entrepreneur. As the Small Business Services Officer for the Oregon Business Development Department, I have worked closely with the Oregon Native American Business Enterprise Network and various other business service providers. Kedma contracts with these service providers as an expert business consultant, and they, in turn, forward reports to my agency regarding the services provided to business owners. I have personally contacted small business owners on many occasions regarding the training, services, and consultation received from various consultants. The comments I have received about Kedma’s consultations have always been positive and complimentary. Kedma also serves as a Council Member on the Oregon Small Business Advisory Council where she works and provides valuable input on behalf of Oregon business. Kedma is a visionary. She doesn’t just talk about creative business ideas; she pursues and accomplishes her goals and objectives. Kedma is a leader. She confidently but courteously provides her input and ideas in forums and committees that have major implications for the state of Oregon and its citizens. I believe she is destined to represent Oregon as a legislator or Senator in the near future.
