It is no news that money will never be enough, those who have it want more and those who don’t have,want some. From the cradle till the grave the quest for money remains endless therefore, I submit to you that money shouldn’t be the reason why you sit down, throw a pity party and make unrealistic wishes this year.
Hoping that someone will fail, fall or falter in the market place so that you can be fruitful oftentimes is an effort in futility. Praying for money to drop down through your ceiling is a symptom of mental retardation and the need of a psychiatrist. I advice you hit the road and like I quoted earlier ‘Dale Carnegie once said, “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
I have hereby listed 5 business that you can start without capital and enable you get your back off the canvas of your background and make significant progress before the year exits under your watch
So, which types of businesses can be started without CAPITAL THIS YEAR 2017
- Personal creations
First off, there are personal creations, like arts and crafts. For example, if you’re a painter, you could sell your works of art with an investment of nothing more than art supplies and your own time. by just uploading on social media on a consistent basis you just might get regular customers. I still remember my first pencil portrait of the first picture I took as a freshman in the university. I paid #3000 for it then. It was done by Sunny Usoro, He is now enjoying his life somewhere in south Africa and also i got one incredible pencil portrait from Ogaga Esharefasa, great job. You too can look inward for some personal creativity
- Home services
Services based business don’t cost you any money up-front because they’re intangible goods. And if you’re working in people’s own homes or neighborhoods, you won’t need a physical headquarters for your business. For example, you could start a babysitting service, or something like landscaping or go from house to house and take care of their laundry needs. hand out from family and friends doesn’t always help out.
- Repair or skill-based services
If you have a specific skill, you could use your skilled labor as the main revenue driver for your business. For example, if you’re a handyman or technician, you could cater to homeowners who don’t know much about home repairs. Just like in-home services, these types of gigs don’t require you to have a physical establishment and don’t require you to invest in anything up-front, except perhaps the tools or equipment you’re going to need for the job, which will vary in cost. I remember today the times when I had to use my cooking skills to secure dinner for myself. Lol.
One of the questions I often ask job applicant and startup entrepreneurs are what was the last thing you did that gave you money. if you can track it, you probably can develop it.
Many workers think about becoming entrepreneurs only after getting several years of professional experience under their belt. Think about the industry you’re in, and how much you’ve been able to learn in that time. Up-and-coming professionals or startup business owners will likely be glad to pay you for your expertise. Consulting is a service that costs only time to produce, but can be highly valuable as a career opportunity.
The idea behind resale is simple: You acquire products and sell them to other people. i am sure there’s a friend or family member whose doing so well in your community. Approach them to sell for a commission and also ask for opportunities to add reasonable and negotiable markup on the service or goods. Its survival mode and don’t let your ego get in the way of money in your pocket
