Examples Of Profitable Business To Start Up With Little Or No Capital

Hello, in this article I would outline some really pretty business to start up with little or no capital/investment. I advice you should start with a business that is not too complicated and with time steadily build that business based on your vision and beliefs with the aim of learning from your experiences in the business.


Making money as a photographer can be done in a number of different ways.

You can specialize in one area, the most common being weddings.

 There are niches you can explore for photography: portraits of people and their pets, families, and homes; photographs of holiday events, birthday parties or Christmas cards; the possibilities are endless.


This is another lucrative business to start up with little capital. It can be done at the comfort of your home or a saloon either way. Generally a home based hairstylist business is likely to be started by someone who has already has a cosmetology career and wants a change.

If you already have your cosmetology training and license, and loads of experience under your belt working in a hairstyling salon, you probably have a following that will follow you right home without any hesitation.

Appliance Repair

This business would require experience, training or licensing. Every household has a number of appliances, large and small. You may decide to work on your own or on contract with appliance stores to cover their warranty service calls--or, best of all, you can do some of each.

 Plan to start slow and build your customer base on recommendations and referrals based on work well done.

 Consider developing relationships with contractors to be the go-to person to install appliances in newly constructed houses.

Wedding Planner

You will need to be up-to-date on wedding trends, dress styles, color trends--almost everything under the sun!

Provide your customers menu of services, from helping pick flowers, the wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses to picking the venue and hiring the caterer.

 Before you open your business, shop at all the wedding shops, and even pretend you are a bride-to-be to see what kinds of services the wedding gown shop provides and how they treat potential customers.

 You need to know every detail of the business to give the accurate impression that you are the perfect person for anyone planning a wedding.

Computer Trainer

This business requires experience, training or licensing and has high possibility of expansion.

If you are proficient in both Macintosh and PC, you should offer training in both types of computers.

You could probably make a living helping seniors learn how to use the internet and e-mail to keep in touch with their loved ones, who are now commonly spread around the country. Err on the side of caution in this business.

 People do not want to know all the details about what makes a computer work.

 If you overload them with information from the beginning by explaining bits, bytes, and mega-pixels, they will stick to their paper and pencil forever.

Day care

Perhaps you love children. Perhaps you have children of your own and the idea of taking care of a few more for part of the day appeals to you.

 Child-care needs continue to soar in the all around the World.

 Many people prefer the option of their child being cared for in a home environment while they are at work, opposed to a more institutional-like setting.

 These things mean that a home-based childcare business can get off and running immediately.

Dog Walking

This would require experience, training and maybe licensing.

Dog walkers take pooches out for their daily constitutional one or more times a day, either individually or in small groups.

In some cities across the United States, like New York, dog walking alone can be a booming business.

But it's actually more common for dog walkers to offer additional services, including playing with and feeding pets, bringing in newspapers and mail, and turning lights on and off.

Music lessons

You want to stick to the instrument(s) you know, but you may be a skilled enough musician to offer lessons on several different instruments, or those in a particular class, e.g., stringed or woodwind.

You can decide to take on individuals or classes, depending on space and availability of instruments.

 Public schools are continually reducing their commitment to art and music classes for students, so you can try to work with the public school system to supplement their efforts in those areas.

Solar Energy Consultant

This requires experience, training or licensing

As a solar consultant, you can basically conduct a home inspection and give clients a report on their solar options for their particular home and site.

This can range from full-fledged general solar installations that generate electricity to simple solar walkway lighting.

 You might want to start by working in a solar products company to become knowledgeable in the solar energy field.

 However, to be a consultant, it is often best not to be affiliated with any one company or product and be able to recommend products and options across the field of solar energy.

Freelance Graphics Designer

Requires experience, training or licensing

Despite the proliferation of the internet, print media is here to stay for the foreseeable future!

 Fliers, newsletters, magazines, information sheets, letters and advertisements are just a few of the types of print media that business hire freelancers to create for them.

Websites and online advertising need graphic design services as well.

 Even if your expertise is only in design, offer the works for potential clients, including the editorial creation and the printing and even mailing of the final piece. You can line up regular freelancers for those parts of the job you can't do.
