Can I Start A Business With No Money?
Let’s be honest we have all wanted to be the big shot business owner. Some want it for the image or the lifestyle. Others want it because they want to be an example of success.
Today’s post will focus on if you can start your very own business with no money whatsoever.
What Made Me Want To Start My Own Business?
As I mentioned above, we’ve all been there, seeing a friend or someone we went to school with start a business. A good friend will always wish them success but it’s easy to become envious. Being your own boss, making the rules, hiring, firing, sealing deals, delegating, taking time off when you want and having that cool feeling of being a boss. We all want a piece of that cake.
The problem is not all of us have the money to start a business. Well not what I call a ‘physical business’ anyway. When I say a physical business I mean the type of business that has premises, staff, vehicles and the everyday headaches of dealing with staff and customers.
A good friend of mine started his own carpentry company a few years ago. He started off just as a one man band and his quality of work soon got noticed and the work started to come in.
He then hired another carpenter to help with the work load and over time he hired more and more people to deal with the work load. He’s very rarely on the tools now and is mainly overseeing jobs and pricing up work. I am very proud of what he has achieved. He had bought his own home, bought a brand new car, had quite a lot of renovations done to it. So things are going well. I always remember one Sunday evening we were all round his house for a BBQ and he was texting his employees to inform them which site they’re on the next day and also dealing with things a boss deals with. I couldn’t help but sit there and think wow I’d live to own my own business but my friend was qualified in a trade, he has a skill. I don’t have anything like that so how can I start a business and become my own boss and earn enough to replace my normal 9-5 job.
I pondered for a long time and came up with some different, and to be honest, stupid ideas. I was pretty much ready to give up then out of know where over Christmas I came across affiliate marketing. For more information on how I started affiliate marketing please click here.

I’m not one of these guys who spouts BS and says I’m living the dream with a 15 bedroom house, a sports car on the drive etc. That’s not how I live. Although that is the dream, we need to live in the real world a bit. Since becoming an affiliate marketer and starting my own online business I have been so motivated to succeed and over time I have seen excellent progress in my business.

Online Business Perks
The thing that really attracted me to online marketing over a ‘physical business’ was the fact that I can learn and earn at my own pace and also do it from the comfort of my own home or pretty much anywhere with an internet connection! The amazing thing about this is the fact that I don’t miss the important things in life, like my children growing up and also it allows me to spend time with my family and friends more often. Also, when you are your own boss, all the decisions are down to you. You can choose the layout of your website, social media pages etc and Wealthy Affiliate can help you set these up in seconds rather than some competitors who prolong the training to then get you to pay a higher fee for the next stage.
All the above are great perks, but the best perk in my opinion is the fact that you need zero money to start, literally not a penny. Somewhere down the line I recommend you own your own domain for your website. However, this is a small cost of something like $20 to own the domain for 2 years. I OWN a website along with social media pages and a YouTube channel and all I paid for was my domain (www.workforyou2020.com).
Will My Online Business Ever Require Me To Spend?
Like any business, sometimes you have to spend money to make money. However, with online marketing, its normally minimal. Of course you can pay for views on YouTube and pay for followers on Instagram and other social media pages but for me I like to do it through hard work and at least then you know your business has a legitimate following. Once you have passed your training at Wealthy Affiliate and you are doing well with your business, I suggest looking into investing some money into your business. This could be with advertising, social media following and there many other ways to help grow your online business with a small injection of cash.
I hope this post has helped you realise your potential and helped you grasp the fact that you CAN start a business with no money.
