Looking to start a business quickly with little money? Consider one of these five. You can start right away for $100 or less.
1.Boat/Car Detailing: Car owners are fanatics about their vehicles and so are boat and plane owners. Investigate the products and start your own detailing biz. Check out Bill Rancic’s book, “You’re Hired” and read how he started his own boat detailing business.
2.Small Biz Vacation Fill-In Employee: There are so many small business owners who can never take a vacation because there is no one to fill in for them. Many don’t need someone to run the entire venture, just be a body to answer a phone and be available if an emergency comes up. You can be that person and roam from business to business filling in for the boss while he or she is away.
3.Errand Service—If you’re organized and detail oriented, start an errand service helping small businesses, biz owners, harried single parents and just about anyone else get things done.
4.Pet Walker—All you need is a love of animals and a good reputation to start this business. Charge by the visit. Print up a flyer and start distributing.
5.Lawns and Landscapes—Start your own lawn cutting, weed cleanup, plant service. Call other businesses in your area that offer these services and see what they charge. Develop your plan of action.
