How to Start a Business with Limited Funding
Get Started with Limited Funding, Like a Boss
Sure, every now and again a man has to do something that he isn’t all that excited about – slaving away for 40+ hours a week to get that paycheck and take care of his family. However, deep down inside every man has a burning desire to not only be their own boss but be much better than their current annoying ass boss.
We strive to become owners, investors, gentlemen that have source after source of plentiful and passive income that allows us to lead the kind of lives we’ve always dreamed of, the kind of lives that we’ve only ever seen in movies and in porn magazines.
Well, for millions of gentlemen all over the world, this isn’t just a pipe dream but instead a daily reality – and many of them started with next to nothing as far as seed capital is concerned.
There Is More Opportunity to Create Legitimate Empires Today
There is more opportunity in the business environment today than ever before for a truly dedicated individual to create a legitimate empire. The gentleman behind Daniel Wellington watches started from literally zero dollars and just five years later is the proud owner of a $180 million company that continues to grow more than Justin Bieber's fan page, especially if you don’t have any cash on hand to give you a head start.
If you’re trying to develop a new business with limited funding but finding it to be tough sledding, here are some tips and tricks you’ll want to keep in your back pocket.
Let the Crowdfunding Game Begin
Sites like Kickstarter are making it easier and easier for people to bring wild ideas to the market without any real capital whatsoever. Amazing products, books, art, and even a Hollywood sequel to the movie Super Troopers has been funded through this website and others like it – and it provides you with an opportunity to get your business up and running without any capital whatsoever.
Just know that this approach is ridiculously competitive, and you’ll have to deliver something truly impressive for people all over the world to “buy-in” and fund your idea before it is a reality. If you’re having a tough time pitching your concept, consider hiring a copywriter (yes, like Don Draper) to help you out.
Bootstrap Sale by Sale
If Kickstarter isn’t right for you, consider simply getting one customer after another the old-fashioned way – through hustling and intelligent salesmanship – and roll those profits back into your company to bootstrap your way to something much, much bigger.
This is especially useful if a gentleman bootstraps while they are still working at their 9 to 5, if only because they’ll have another source of income behind them that allows them to roll all of their profits back into the growth of their business. This will allow it to take off much faster than it would have otherwise.
At the end of the day, a true gentleman is in complete and total control of all aspects of their lives, but most importantly they are in control of their finances. A side hustle that you kickstart or bootstrap is going to give you the keys to the castle (or a woman with boobs big as a castle), so to speak – and you don’t have to pump a ton of money into it to get started, either.
