Owning your own business is considered to be the ultimate dream. Although it can be done, it’s really hard to start a business with no money. According to a survey conducted by the UPS Store, nearly 48% of the people polled who have never owned their own business, dreamed of one day becoming their own boss. The reality is very people will actually pursue their dream of owning a business.
Why? Because they feel they don’t have enough money.
Starting Your Own Business is Extremely Rewarding
But isn’t fast or easy. It requires:
- Having a passion for what your are doing
Fortunately, the internet has leveled the playing field and it’s now more easier than ever before to raise the money you need to start a business (even if it’s just a sideline business).
Here are a few of the methods I have personally used in the past to raise money to start some of my businesses:
- Sold used items on Craigslist
- Sold products as an independent sales rep
- Sweat Equity
- Worked part-time as a retail merchandiser
- Worked online doing freelance work
