Business can be found in every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s learning, love or just living, there are always ways how you can turn it into a successful business and make a living off of it.
Most people are interested in starting their own business. After all, what else can give you the freedom, the power and the inspiration, being your own boss gives you. The question is; do you have the right idea and can you cover the start-up costs?
Luckily, there are businesses which require little capital, about a $100 or even less:
If you are passionate about something (can be anything) and you enjoy writing, blogging can very well be your ideal career and business. There are several ways how you can make a living by blogging, namely, with ads, affiliate marketing, sponsorship and selling your own product. P.s. When starting a blog, you should always keep in mind that money is not the top priority, you readers are.
“How do I begin building a blog and how much will it cost?”
There are a number of resources out there that will help you in your blogging career. But first things first, you need to get started. The first step is to purchase your own self-hosted site. Fortunately buying a website and hosting it isn’t really that expensive (way less than a $100). Bluehost offers hosting services starting at $3.95/month. They also give you a free domain!
Everyone has heard about youtubers or vloggers. They have risen in popularity in recent years. Youtubers have managed to turn a multinational business into their own business (props to them!). You can do it too. All you need is a camera, which you probably already have ( or look for a cheap one on Amazon), and an idea.
Direct sale representative
Companies, like Avon, offer people the opportunity to become a direct sale representative. This means that you buy a starter kit and you can sell their products to people yourself. Once money starts coming in, you can buy more products and sell more etc.etc. Starter kits aren’t usually more than $100. (Avon’s starter kit begins at $25).
But I’m not a book-keeper? Well, you can be! You can take this free online bookkeeping course and become a full-fledged book-keeper. This skill is always in need and so your business opportunities will continue to increase.
Flipping items means buying and reselling the same item for profit. If you study your market well, flipping items on sites like Amazon and Ebay, will earn you a very good living. Another way of flipping items is buying items, fixing them up and then sell them for an even higher price. So grab your $100 and invest it wisely.
Freelancing is free. You can freelance any type of work; from data entry to professional or technical services. The more specialised your skills, the more you get paid, but you can start any type of freelance business. Look for jobs on sites like Ifreelance or Freelancer and start building your freelance business.
Books, whether printed or online, are always a staple and will never go out of style. If you are creative and if you have good writing skills, you should try writing a book. All you need is a pen, some paper and a whole lot of your time.
Building a business doesn’t have to be expensive. You can realistically start a business with $100 or less. So make a plan and follow it through, because it is possible to succeed.
