52 businesses you can start with little no money


When it comes to business there is not much I haven’t done, I started my first ever business aged 15 in secondary school because I got myself in a bit of trouble with my mum and needed to make some quick cash. At that point I had no idea I was actually starting a business all I knew is the chances of me getting a job is very unlikely and I need to make some money. There are many businesses you can start that don’t require a massive investment. Aged 15 I used to customise clothing, sell vintage and preworn items on eBay and resell trainers.

Some businesses that started with nothing:

  • Whole Foods Market – In 1978 John Mackey and Rene Lawson saved and borrowed money from friends and family to open their first store in Austin, Texas. After getting evicted from their apartment, the two lived in their first store.
  • Apple, Disney, Google, Harley Davidson, Hewlett-Packard, Lotus Cars, Mattel, Yankee Candle Company all started in garages.
  • Nike – Founders, Philip Knight and Bill Bowerman started selling training shoes from their car trunk.
  • Dell – Michael Dell started out as a dishwasher, making a whopping $2.30 per hour. Dell started selling PC out of his college dorm.
