It takes money to make money, right? That’s what people will tell you. However, that is not always the case, and some small businesses can be launched on a budget. By relying on innovative and creative methods, you can actually start a business with as little as 100 dollars.
Don’t be afraid to dream big even if your pockets are seemingly empty right now. Here are some ideas for small businesses that you can start right now.
If you think that you are a creative person and you’re proud of your living room, becoming an interior designer is a good idea. Good interior designers and decorators need to have an ability to communicate through graphic presentations. That means having a sense of color and balance is essential.
Most interior designers often work without formal credentials, but in some states, you are required to have a state-issued license. Check whether a license is needed in your state, obtain one if that’s what is required of you, and start doing your job!
There’s a big chance that you won’t have a lot of clients straight away, so build your portfolio by decorating your friends’ rooms.
If you’re passionate about sports and you love working out, becoming a personal trainer is something you should look into. Personal trainers work flexible hours, earn a lot of money and are always in contact with new and exciting people.
Just because you know how to work out doesn’t mean that you’ll be a good personal trainer. You need to talk the talk and walk the walk. Learn everything you can about human anatomy, develop your skills as a leader and get yourself certified!
Many certifications have self-study options that can save you money, but you’ll probably have to spend at least 400 dollars. As you can see, that’s a small price to pay for something that will make you a lot of money in the future.
Do you love spending time with kids? Do you love watching them learn and play? If the answer is “yes” you need to think about starting a childcare service. The best thing about this service is that you don’t need to spend a large amount of cash on anything. You can use your own home in order to save money, but keep in mind that some states limit the number of children who can be cared for at the same time. That means that your earnings will be restricted, at least in the beginning.
Build your reputation slowly, save money wisely, and in no time you’ll be able to open your own private kindergarten.
Millions of people often ask themselves whether they’ll ever be able to save money and retire. As a result, people are always seeking objective and experienced professionals to help them manage their money.
You need to have an office if you want to be a personal financial advisor. Baby boomers trust those whose offices are neat, clean and completely secure. Keep in mind that you will be dealing with finances and that your office and you need to radiate trust. Install a HID reader and video control systems in your office before even thinking about opening the doors of your company to potential clients.
Most people don’t like getting their hands dirty, and that’s a fact. Exploit that fact by opening a cleaning service company. Concentrate on offices if you want to work when no one else does, but keep in mind that cleaning homes will probably bring more money your way.
Most of your customers will hear about your from other people, so put yourself out there, offer cleaning services for free to some of your friends, and let word-of-mouth marketing strategy bring you a lot of clients.
Whatever you choose to do, manage your time carefully and don’t expect your business to boom overnight!
