Question:IS THERE A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY WITH LITTLE OR NO MONEY TO START UP

IS THERE A BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY IN WHICH TO START UP A BUSINESS WITH LITTLE OR NO MONEY TO ENTER INTO?

Answer:

I believe any simple commercial business can start with little investment. Service businesses are even cheaper to start.
1. First use your network to start selling without advertising and without having a store or an office. Store and work at home instead.
2. With the first profits, start advertising to attract more custumers.
3. As the demand grows, you can rent storage space, a shop, an office...
I'm actually starting a wine import business, and that's exactly what I'm doing.
Good luck!

Answer:

Hi GloLee,

Bartering is a good way to get your business started with reducing start up cost. Evaluate what you can do for others, and get paid for it, or get free service back.

Answer:

What kind of things are you interested in GloLee? That's always a good place to start and from there, pretty much any business can start small to gain capitol. If you're into baking or cooking start off with a small stand at a swap meet.If you want to open a store, maybe you can start selling your products on Ebay. It's just a matter of finding your passion.
