- Starting a Business on a Budget?
Are you working on a tight budget? No problem. Many home-based business opportunities and courses are FREE or only require a minimal investment. Here are just a few resources to get you on your way.
- Become an Independent Business Owner.
With these options, you file your paperwork for a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or an Employee Identification Number (EIN), and you contract with larger companies to provide customer service via the phone. The advantages of this arrangement are you’re given extensive training, and you don’t have to find your own clients. The disadvantages of these options are you have less control over how you run your business, and your earning potential can be limited since you’re not negotiating your own rates.
- Become a Home-Based Franchise Owner.
While franchises usually require a substantial startup fee, they can be a low-risk and lucrative way to run your own business. The beautiful thing about a franchise is that all the hard work has been done for you; you pay for the franchise and fees, and you’re given a detailed roadmap on how to replicate the business exactly. But because you’re working with an established name brand, you don’t have as much flexibility in how you conduct business, since you must adhere to the franchise agreement.
