101 Business to start with Little or no Capital and Create Wealth

Do you really thing starting a business requires huge capital to set it up?

Business OpportunityA lot of people believe that starting any business required huge capital, and with without enough capital, such business is a no go area, and should be left for those who have enough fund to get started.

If you are of the school of thought that starting any business required large sum of money, that means you are imbibing the wrong mindset! Probably, you have not carried out any research on the business that you want to go into; you’d have come across so many successful companies that started in the garage or home. In my previous article on 50 businesses you can start from home with little capital and make huge profit, I pointed out some companies that got started with little capital. Yes, with little or nothing, and you know them already and even using their product and service every day! If you don’t know that they started in garage, probably you have not studied their background. Such companies like Apple, Google, Hewlett-Packard and Amazon among others started with little capital or absolutely nothing in the garage (your home)

I will list over 101 businesses you can start from home with little or no capital.

Please before you dive into any business, ensure you carry out research, study the business environment and have clear understanding of the business.
