Let’s leave the situation when a person has enough money to arrange everything for starting a business. Let’s suppose, you aren’t so rich. But even in your case, there are options. First of all, you should check those opportunities where you don’t need to invest too much financial capital or any at all. There are many of them on the web, home-based and even in the real world (e.g. for brokers and consultants, their knowledge and selling skills are their start-up capital).


Why not try freelancing? This is a good way to work independently and to earn some money. If you are hardworking, disciplined, ready to learn, and reliable, you will find many clients. You can get in touch with other freelancers who work in your field and create your team. Then, why not launch your own online company? The internet provides many options for development, and who knows, in some years your company may start working internationally.


Are there too many competitors? That is not a problem at all. Even if you sell popular products, just sell them cheaper (anyway you don’t pay rent for a commercial space). Even if you make ten instead of twenty cents from a sale, but sell to 10,000 people instead of 1,000, you are already making a good profit. Sell the basic things – those that everybody needs constantly. Online selling is the future as we see in Amazon, Alibaba, Shopee, Lazada etc. Click here for more basics to selling online.

Most businesses need investment. Moreover, you need to get money before launching a business, as there are many things to prepare. You will need to arrange the legal side, such as permissions, licenses, and so on. All that costs money. Then, you need to pay the rent and bills. This is one more significant part of expenses that you have to pay before you get any income. Where to get money from? There are options:

  • Your expenditures. Revise them and think where you can save money. Maybe it is worth to wait with going out or with an expensive vacation? Or the maintenance of your new luxury car that costs half of your salary? Are there things which you can survive without? Those are the sources of money.
  • Sell something. For example, if you sell that luxury car that you have bought to show off, then you get money, and you save on its maintenance.
  • Attract investors. If you have extraordinary ideas that may change the world and generate huge income in the future, there may be people willing to share your expenses now and your income in the future. Why not to let them know? Look for venture capitalists to sell your ideas to.
