Here are some resources on how to start a party planning business How to Start a Planning Business http://www.biz-ewomen.com/homebizideas/hotbiz_party_planning.htm Personal Event Planning Business Plan (Free) http://www.bplans.com/spv/3196/index.cfm?affiliate=powerhomeb Party Planning Business http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art39265.asp Party planner s growing business http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/3996633.stm I recommend reading the following books for in-depth information The Party Planner by Charles Maring, Jennifer Maring, and David Tutera http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/821261657/ref=nosim/powerhomebizguid It s Party Time: How to Start & Operate Your Own Home-Based Party-Planning Business by M. L. Hine http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0806248106/ref=nosim/powerhomebizguid In terms of getting grants for funding your business, unfortunately, grants are hardly given for starting a business. Unlike the myths that some perpetuate, federal government and even private foundations hardly give grant money for a for-profit business. Nonetheless, you can go to the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) http://www.cfda.gov and Grants.gov http://www.grants.gov - these are two sites created by the federal government to provide transparency and information on grants. Browse through the listings and see if you can find any grant that would support a for-profit venture. Even if you buy books on "how to get grants" or list that supposedly has information on grants -- all of them are mere rehash of what CFDA has, albeit packaged differently. But still the info is the same - hardly any grants for starting a for profit business. Even SBA does NOT give out grants. From the SBA website http://www.sba.gov/expanding/grants.html. "The U.S. Small Business Administration does not offer grants to start or expand small businesses, although it does offer a wide variety of loan programs. (See http://www.sba.gov/financing for more information) While SBA does offer some grant programs, these are generally designed to expand and enhance organizations that provide small business management, technical, or financial assistance. These grants generally support non-profit organizations, intermediary lending institutions, and state and local governments." Here is a listing of federal grants for small businesses. See if there is any available for individuals for starting a business -- THERE S NONE. http://12.46.245.173/pls/portal30/CATALOG.BROWSE_BENEF_RPT.show Most of the federal grants are given to specific target groups with specific requirements (e.g. minority business owners involved in transportation related contracts emanating from DOT - Grant#20.905 Disadvantaged Business Enterprises Short Term Lending Program Grants are also often given to non profit groups or organizations involved in training or other similar activities (grant 59.043 Women s Business Ownership Assistance that are given to those who will create women s business center that will train women entrepreneurs For private grants, you may want to check the Foundation Center s Foundation Grants for Individuals Online. It s a subscription based website ($9.95 per month) but their opening blurb only says that the database is ideal for "students, artists, academic researchers, libraries and financial aid offices." Entrepreneurs are apparently not one of them, so I take it they also don t have listings of private foundations who give grants to would-be entrepreneurs.

A business-law attorney is your best bet. Contact your local bar association for a referral or a chamber of commerce. What they charge will vary widely depending on the size of your community, size of the firm, and if the lawyer is a "hot-shot" type with a big name. If you know a good paralegal personally, you can ask them and they may be able to help you - but if you go to a firm most of the time the actual attorney will do the advisement.
