You Don’t Need Thousands to Start Your Own Business

Posted by Richard Whitson in Articles

Many people dream about starting their own business. They usually dream about it when they are stuck in a boring meeting at work, or are trudging through their usual day with little joy. They dream about working for themselves, about being rid of the shackles of “working for the man” and being able to enjoy pursuing their own passion and dream.

If you have a bit of entrepreneurial spirit, you can pursue those dreams, sometimes for even under a thousand dollars, and some of these jobs include:

  • Social media manager – for companies that are on the small side and can’t afford their own marketing team.
  • Wedding planner – If grace under pressure, stress, details and style are all of your favorite things – being a wedding planner might be right up your alley.
  • Caterer – Have you been told that you’re a great cook and want to turn it into a profession? Being a caterer might be for you – remember you’ll be working lots of weekends and evenings.
  • Personal trainer – everyone wants to get into shape these days! If you’re interested in getting and staying fit, go for certifications and turn it into a profitable business.
  • Virtual assistant – Do you like planning and organizing? You can use these skills to become a virtual assistant, who does everything a regular assistant does.
  • Jewelry maker – Are you creative and hands-on? There are many platforms to sell homemade jewelry, and people love to buy artisan wares.
  • Independent sales rep – there are many companies out there that are looking for independent reps- whether it’s Tupperware, Avon, Pampered Chef, you won’t have to worry about creating  product, only selling it.
  • Transcriber – from medical transcription to transcribing video shoots or even speeches, you just have to be a good typist and you could have your own transcribing business.
