Grant Writing for Small Businesses

When you fall into a protected class, such as a veteran, a disabled person or are a minority, several foundations and places provide grants for small businesses. Grant writing requires a special form of writing and must be geared to the style in which the grant documents are presented. Nonprofit organizations, agencies or foundations that provide grants to qualified small business owners also prepare an application package that lists what they're looking for in a grant proposal. Always read the application package carefully and write the grant in the same voice as that used in the application.

I agree that you should go for it, But . . .

Make sure you have a business plan to help you think things through before committing any more money to the idea. I've gone to a number of workshops, and read extensively on the subject, so the first time I sat down to write my plan I easily wrote 60 pages and that was just my first draft. Having put in the time and effort upfront made it easy for me to put together small proposals for funds from private investors and also get grant moneys for repairs or outright purchases.
The number one problem a lot of new investors confront (this also includes new start up businesses) is cash flow; think about how you're going to sustain the business while you're waiting to flip your property

Home businesses have made millionaires

Work from home is solid American tradition.
The sewing machine brought self employment to millions of people in the US first, then around the world. The typewriter came next, now the computer and Internet. But there are hundreds of other opportunities from door to door selling Avon, Kay’s cosmetics or Amway… to leaving your business card and asking neighborhood kids if they need work on their bikes. Henry Ford started in his mother’s kitchen to her chagrin. HP started at home and soon in the garage. More companies have started in a US home than anywhere on earth. Go through the part time help wanted ads in Craiglist and you will see hundreds of offers

I'll run it by him...

His garage is too small, just a two car for personal work.. but he has 88 A. with about 25 on the other side of the highway across from his house, with good road frontage and it's on a highway... so might work for him if he put up a building. Worth kicking the idea around..
I would be more than happy to test out the video aspects for you.
I may not know a lot about motorcycles, but I do know a good bit about thinking outside the box, looking at things from different angles, coming up with win win solutions and customer service.
I've even helped write some business plans and done a little grant writing
