Low Investment Business Ideas - How to make money Online and Offline - 1

Updated on May 8, 2011

There was a time when most people just needed a safe secure job. Well today that isn’t enough. Most young people (and many older ones) realise soon after they get a job that growing up and working the rest of their lives at a job isn’t what they had hoped life would be about.

Many have started realising that money had to work for them and it shouldn’t have to be the other way around. While many know starting a business or several businesses is the way to go, it’s difficult to get that first break. Especially for those in the comfortable middle classes taking that first risky step is the most difficult. With one reasonably good source of income outside your job it would make it a lot easier to start more businesses and live your dream.

My following set of articles are dedicated to just that:

Low to medium investment business ideas.

The internet reaches people all around the globe, and so do these articles. So it wouldn’t make sense detailing the regulatory and monetary requirements for each location so we have just stuck to brief ideas. If you like an idea, that should be a strong enough motivator to get you going to find all the rest you need to know to setup and succeed in the business in your part of the world.

These articles are not a detailed manual but a box of ideas briefly opening your mind to a possibility. Pick those ideas from here that you feel strike a chord with you. Further research on these ideas that you’ve shortlisted can eventually lead you to the business that fits you best.

Don’t run through all these ideas in a single reading. Go through them maybe 3 or 4 a day so you have time to see the business being run in your mind’s eye. Imagine how it would be to live a life running that business. Think about the pros and cons and what you would or would not enjoy doing. Give yourself time to think through an idea before dismissing it.

The ideas shared at the links below are for both online and offline businesses. Once you're done with the 20 part series "Business Ideas - How to make money Online and Offline", and if you would still like to look at more business ideas, please feel free to check out the next series "More Business Ideas"(link provided below).

Happy Reading!!
