Tiffany I'm not an expert on start ups but I will help in anyway that i can, I assume you already familiarized yourself with the requirements. Don't worry about your credit right now. You can work on that later on. Do you have a website? If you have not started working on your business plan then you need to start now. The things that you need to be working on now are funding,your business plan and finding a way to get your information out to large numbers of people, Reply back and we can get into details. One more thing. We all have a past wether it was good or not so good. Keep your head up, be aware of your situation, work on being a better person and keep your passion. You'll be just fine. Here is my email in case you want to discuss some things in private. nitono1@yahoo.com.

Tiffany did you ever get a chance to connect with Boye? I would also try to connect with him. You both are in the same industry. He might have some useful information to give you. You may even have some useful information to give him. That is the beauty of networking!

There may be a more specific answer, but I would suggest connecting with someone on twitter. Do a search for christian bookstore and that may lead you to some resources.
