For some people who decide to start a business, they already have the perfect business idea in their head. They have already figured out their talents and just need some help making it into a reality. For other people, they already know that they want the freedom and that they have the drive, they just don’t know what kind of business is perfect for them.
The great thing about starting a business is that there are plenty of options to start a business even if you have a low budget. You don’t need to shell out thousands of dollars anymore just to start your dream business. Most businesses now don’t require very much capitol at all.
5 Businesses You Start with $100
1. Cleaning Service
Starting a cleaning service is a great business to start because it needs very little to get going in the first place. All you need is some business cards and advertisements on free sites like Craigslist to land your first cleaning gigs. You may already own a vacuum, and all you need to buy is extra cleaning supplies that can run you $10-$30.
2. Grocery Delivery Service
Everyone needs groceries, but it’s common for people not to have the time, or patience, to actually get to the grocery store. By targeting busy moms or young professionals, you can easily advertise in your neighborhood or grocery store by just handing out flyers or business cards. Create a payment system that works for you and in a couple of hours you can have a grocery delivery service running off the ground. What you’ll need is a cell phone, a car, and a desire to help people.
3. Virtual Assistant
I see this profession around a lot lately as businesses are growing and looking for more help with their workload. Becoming a virtual assistant can be as easy as putting out an announcement on social media, asking if anyone needs any help with their businesses or websites. Next thing you know, your a full fledged virtual assistant. Only things needed are a computer and the know how.
4. Fit Club Leader
Unless you have a personal fitness certification, you can’t market yourself as a personal trainer. What you can do though, is if you love fitness and love motivating people, you can start a group of other people like you who want to get in shape. If you master the moves and workouts, you can lead the workouts at a park or clubhouse in your neighborhood. Start up needed? A pair of sneakers, flyers, and a great personality.
Being a consultant has become even more easier as technology progresses. Think about things you are good at: organizing a home, web design, writing, or speaking, and use that as a platform for your consultant business. What’s great is that using webcam services you can meet people from anywhere, from the comfort of your home. The only thing that’s needed is a computer and a drive to help others.
