You’ve got a great idea and think it would make an amazing business, but there’s just one problem — you don’t have a lot of money to spend. Fear not — with the right approach, you can get a business up and running with very little cost.
There are a ton of successful bootstrapped businesses that are built on scrappy attitudes, strong motivations and careful cash management. If you want to grow a successful business without big expenses, then you’ll need to follow a few good principles.
What Is the Easiest Business to Start with No Money?
We believe that the easiest low-cost businesses to start are those where you’re selling your skills and services. You don’t need to spend money buying products to sell, and you won’t have the overheads of storage, packaging, distribution or anything like that.
That’s why we recommend selling your knowledge and expertise. You might do that as a freelancer by providing writing, editing, design, programming or similar skills. Alternatively, you might teach others, offer creative classes or provide caregiving for homes, pets or people.
