A fairly decent website can be started for less than 1000.
You can become an affiliate marketer for that amount. You could do the same for much less though.
Local cleaning business. Dog washing. Lawncare.
Depends what you are interested in doing. You can write hubs and other blogs for much less than $1,000.
Many e-businesses can be started with less than $1000. In fact, some can even be started for less than $100. From there is really depends on what you want to do and what business model you want to have (where will your revenue come from)? Will you make money from selling goods and/or services via the Internet or will you draw people to your website with good content and then make money from advertising revenue?
Either way, while an e-business may be easy (or cheap) to start, it may not produce any kind of stable income for a while. Many e-businesses operate purely on start-up capital for a long time and can take years to be profitable and successful. However, if you work hard and have creative ideas, you can make a lot of money starting your own e-business. Just keep in mind that an e-business is not a get rich quick scheme.
There are a lot of options as mentioned by others.
You can also start a business like Tupperware, Avon, Gold Canyon candles or other direct sales for less than $1000.
You can start an ebay business.
You could start a very niche business with a couple hundred dollars worth of inventory.
If you already have a truck, you could start a junk hauling business. You can use the $1000 dollars for gas and advertising.
All of them. The price of a start-up is usually a matter of scale. If you start small, you can start whatever you want for that price.
You can start just about any business you're interested in. Obviously, $1,000 can't buy everything you will need, but you can start with the most essential, income-producing pieces and re-invest to grow from there. Those initial investments should include organization of the business (getting a DBA, an LLC, etc.), distributor rights if you're going to operate a network marketing-type business, and a fully-functional website that includes e-commerce, social media integration, and regularly updated keyword-rich content. You'll probably also want business cards and possibly flyers as well. The most important thing will be to get the foundation laid and then get out there and hustle up some business. Get the word out far and wide as fast as you can.
I have some very profitable online businesses that I got started in for way less than that and have made 3 times that. I also got started in my direct sales party plan business 4 years ago for 1/4 that amount and just imagine how much I've made in 4 years. My online businesses are my main focus right now because I simply work a couple hours online each day and make money. You can email me if you have questions firstname.lastname@example.org
There are many different options for you. Your business opportunities are virtually endless. You could create your own e-boutique store simply by using a free social networking site such as facebook. Facebook is an easy, fun and free tool that allows you to sell virtually anything you want. Only pay for the products you buy and any incentives you might want to use to attract customers. You could make it local. Also, you can make it open and have standard shipping price for the items you sell. eBay is another great tool that allows you to easily sell online. However, eBay will take a certain percentage of what you sell. There are also companies that allow you to start a business using their products. Here are some great companies with business opportunities: Avon, Mark, Paparazzi, It works body wraps, Thirty-one, Scensty. The start up is usually less than one thousand dollars and they almost always give you a free and operating website. There are so many possibilities out there and so many great opportunities!
Anything really, I suggest buying things online then selling them for a higher price (either online or in your local area).
I realize you asked this question months ago, but I want to respond. Others have commented listing several direct sales businesses. I have also gotten involved in several direct sales businesses with a start-up cost well below the $1000 mark. Many however require a regular purchase, monthly payments for your websites, and updating your inventory so the ongoing cost can be exuberant if you do not apply yourself. Vault Denim is the one company I have found that you get your website, your training and your supplies within a $159 sign-up fee. THEN you check out the jean inventory much like a library book! You take it to your party, then you check it back in and they send you your check! SO actually, you only have your cost of gas to get the jeans and going to your party after the one time fee of $159. Crazy amazing! I have written a hub about it....check it out if you are interested.
I don't know if you are still looking for answers but have you checked out the It Works body wraps? I was able to quit my job and I'm now working from home for this company. Message me if you have any questions!

You need to have a plan and find the tools to start up. With the days of “having a job for life” firmly behind us now, the online environment is helping to transform initial thoughts of business start up in to a more realistic goal which an ever increasing population can attain.
