I have been in business selling a "niche" custom product for many years and now am overwhelmed with demand for my product since putting a website online yet I cannot get any REAL, ACTUAL help or funding to expand operations no matter where I turn. What should I do or where or how can I get the REAL help I need? I have another product designed and ready to be marketed which likely will be even bigger.
Well this sounds like a positive problem to have! Being overwhelmed with demand! One of the most challenging aspects of any business is how to grow it smoothly. Maybe funding isn't your answer right now. I would make an honest assessment of your current ability to fulfill orders and grow at your own pace.
