    good article. it's true that you can start a lot of businesses with a low budget, and the cheapest business it's in the online industry.

    really? what? Selling free hugs on the street? or begging?

    even for an online business you'll need a server, and that's not free

    Yes that is true.. You just grab a $1 domain coupon, setup a website on a free web host then offer whatever service you provide..

    Heh, I recommend that everyone doing IM in the US get an LLC - after all if you are making even a low amount of money off IM it only costs a hundred bucks or so to open an LLC and you can get tax benefits.

    Let people think you need a lot of cash to start a business. Less competition and more money for us! :D

    Can you explain a bit more?

    I am curious, and also LLC should protect you a bit more if something were to go wrong with teh business so your personal life would get impacted

    You can just about start any business with little to nothing. Most of the time you can get people to help you out when you start out.

    Now if you count your time as money then you will be spending a ton of it trying to get your business up and running.

    I made my first $500 with $0. But it wasn't a business as such, just a bit of clever data entry on a popular cashback website.
