Starting a business with no money – grow slowly

I know many people who have started things like domestic cleaning and gardening businesses. They have not had to buy any equipment as initially they only worked for people who had the equipment themselves. With domestic cleaning that is quite expected. Once you have built up some income it’s then possible to expand into other types of cleaning where the customers might expect you to provide the materials and equipment. The same concept can work for many types of business.

With other businesses you might need a small outlay to perform at a certain level and then grow as you build the business offering more services as and when you can invest more in your business. A cleaning or gardening business might not be your dream business but if you built one up to the point where it could be sold it would enable you to then start your ideal business. There are many possibilities of starting a business with no money and it just needs thought on how you will do it.

Starting a business with no money – part time

One option of course is to start a business part time whilst you remain in employment. This will mean that you have an income on which to live and use your business income to reinvest back in and grow the business. It makes starting a business with no money a lot more financially sound when you have another reliable income.

So if you are looking to start your own business and don’t have any money look for ways that you can start without it.

  1. Interesting take on starting a business. Cashflow is always the most difficult. If you can manage your accounting well and budget accordingly, you shouldn’t put yourself in such a bind early on. Be frugal, save, save, save! You’re going to need it in year one!!

    Cool read!
