Do you know that the best way to start a business is to be in business? Do you also know that the best way to start a business is to have an idea?  And the idea you have precedes your determination. 

But the sad thing is some people give up easily on the line while some remain focused on what they believed in. 

Some will say, l have got a great idea of business but no money, while some will say, l have some cash but don’t know what to do with it, whichever way it comes, Follow these simple set ideas and know Ways You Can Start A Business With Zero Money.


  1. Develope your idea of business through your passion
  2. Create your idea of business based on your audience
  3. Be creative and gather as much information as possible
  4. Desire to learn and improve in your art
  5. Build your business on what you know and have

Part of Entrepreneurship is that it will be difficult, yes it will even be stressful but don’t let limited capital or zero money or discouragement keep you from playing the game of success.




Just as you want to start your business on a zero money or no capital, focus on running your online store in a free marketplace, a platform that offers free services and allows you to sell your physical or digital goods for free. An example of such free marketplace is Shopify and Storenvy, there are other free platforms you can search out on your own personal research.




2.) HANDMADE CRAFTS – Handmade crafts (embedded video) have become my best creativity and idea because it is born naturally. The beauty and satisfaction found in this are that, there is a transition from making things for your self and natural instinct to making things to the satisfaction of others. Allow your focus to be on what people will actually want to buy.


3.) HANDMADE ART – Get your artistic instincts into limelight, don’t just create, draw or design if you have the art but push it out to the satisfaction of others,  use the online world to announce your creativity, find a way to show others your work, teach and educate people on what you do and know.

4.) FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT – If you have a passion for cooking and entertainment, it is possible to walk away from your day job and earn a good living from writing and blogging about your menu. The breakfast you prepare for your family each morning has its own unique touch and nutrient which another family might not know about. If you have a passion for cooking and preparing menu, see beyond personal consumption and push it to the world to see and learn from you.

Start taking pictures and videos of your work and go social to earn money.

    I love the 10 ways to start a business you wrote about.
    I particularly have affection for no. 9 and 10. I made my own website, started my own blog and while I’m still working on it, I’m anxious to reap the benefits.

    I’m in the wellness and health sector, and through blogging, I’ve found a passion. I didn’t know I had it in me until I tried it. And I think that goes on for all the other ways to make money: you have to love it, and not necessarily do it for the money in the first place. It has to become a passion.

    Great post!
