Where can a new home based business owner get start-up money?

When starting a new company, where can the new business owner apply for initial capital? I would like to learn from other's people experience (established new business owners) where did they get the money for their first year of business (replacing my previous employee salary and hoping for possible 1-2 projects in the first year of operating). My business is currently home based and it employs only myself. The Internet is full with these ”apply for government grants” promotions but from what I read it's mainly a scam. More conservative options I read are applying to a loan backed by the SBA or maybe American Express.
