Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

With your requirements,perhaps you could try the food and beverage industry?

I am not very clear on your profit statement.How could you get such high returns when you have intention of investing almost the same amount?

You could also invest the money in businesses that are already established instead of starting on your own.

Agree.Time and consistency are equally important.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

How old are you TS? I'm curious to know.

In truth, unless the manpower you have is working for you for free, if not, your capital isn't enough to even pay them for a single month. Did you factor in salary as part of your costs?

In terms of that amount of capital, the only businesses that you can afford to look into would probably be a simple push cart stall (and even then it may be beyond your budget) or online businesses such as a blogshop. All brick and mortar businesses would be beyond your capital.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

Guys thanks for the replies. I am just brainstorming aloud here. I have several ideas from some friends and will try to explore with the talents that I have first. I believe nothing is impossible. I dun intend to have any profits, it is just to pay the worker and sustain the business.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

Your business start-up capital should last at least 6 months of projected expenses.

$5000 is seriously not enough for 6 months worth of operating costs.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

It is genuinely possible to start businesses and make profits even with little capital, but that usually is based on the premise that you are the only person working, or the people helping you are doing it for free.

If you are intending to hire people and pay them a monthly salary, then I'm sorry that amount of capital isn't enough.

Such business plan should be for online and if you intend to sell things online using blog or auction site I could help. For offline business, it's simply near impossible unless govt funded your idea.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

As a rough gauge, you should always have with you your estimated expenses for 6 months to 1 year and multiply by TWO in your coffers before you are considered to have the means to start your own business.

I hope you do not take on consumer debt, and instead pay feelance fees until profit is made.

I've seen personal friends plunge into a business and sinking really low. But i've seen friends who've done it and got up and coming as well.

I wish you well! Be sure to have a definite plan.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

Hi TS, good that u've clear clarity. I am also into startup now and should be on track soon. I used to think that it's necessary to start up with limitation etc. However, after some insights gained, I had a set of philosophy that goes against the popular belief.

In my opinion, a good entrepreneur is one who:

1. Create asset out of nothing/ Create something out of nothing
2. Believe that wealth/asset is merely an idea
3. Wherever he/she is, he/she can recreate the model of creating and running of a successful business

Also, business must have its own mission which is most of time linked to the belief of that person who starts the business. Without a sense of sincere mission, customers would be able to detect the insincerity and slowly it would affect the sales.

Hence, try to look within, seek the passion/ability/dream that you already have. Try to brainstorm the possibility of running business aligning to your passion.

Hope it works 4u.

You can take your capital to any school (or your school's) Entrepreneur Club and invest in their work.

Re: Wanted: Ideas to start a very small business

Hmmm.. If really can earn that much, I would have started.
But for me, I earn around $1000 per month doing online blogshop.
Sometimes more, sometimes less.

But the thing is I invest $0 in it. Manpower: 1 (myself >.<)
You may want to start online, then after u open a retail shop?
