    Anybody can be an entrepreneur. Anybody who attempts to start a business of any kind is in fact an entrepreneur. There are lessons learned in failures, but those lessons don't necessarily have to do with what the entrepreneur did wrong. Competition, market condition, and market penetration matter. Every business is different. Business is not a cookie-cutter sort of thing.

    I started four different businesses within a short period of time with no money to do so. But I knew one thing for sure, while I may be broke, the one thing I've got that my competitors don't have, is the knowledge to not only become number one on Google and other search engines, but to wholy own the first five pages in whatever category I so choose.

    I am my own web developer. I am my own graphic designer. I am my own SEO master. Traditional forms of advertising we're dying at that time and are still essentially dead now.

    Not one of my adventures was unsuccessful. I made money in each. However none were so successful that I quit my day job.

    My fifth, however, brought me to 150k each year and the business lasted for total of 10 years until I closed it voluntarily. Additionally, I replicated what I did for myself for a friend. He resided in a different market. Unemployed at the time that I did that for him, he went from making zero to 75 to 95 k per year. The only thing he had to do when I was done... was answer the phone.

    I agree though, if we all had $500,000 to get started, it sure as hell would shorten the process.

    But, think of it this way. There are a great many out there born with a silver spoon in their mouth. But they're lacking all the lessons learned from trying, the lessons that come from the struggle, the lessons in life that come from being poor, and as a result, formally educated or not, odds are they will do one of two things. They will either invest money poorly and fail as a result thereof; or they will invest in a business like a franchise and have a predictable income each year and be content with that. Advantage: You. Be the tiger. Be hungry. The content stay in the same place until they die.

    If you have no money, the best business to get into is a service business of any kind. Any business that requires an upfront investment into goods in the hopes that you can resell them is likely not a possibility, and even if it is, it's likely too risky. My model is make the first 50k based on a service business, invest and diversify from there.

    That's my two cents. Good luck to all.

    real estate ? I know some IM doing it. I don't know how it works maybe you know.

    they just claim what " no restrict , you don't even need to bring client or meet client go to the house show case it and sell to them , all is done online to sell to them "

    sound too good to be true? But this is what I saw some IM promoting this .

    This is so true.. and the only reason that brings me here. Currently I am connected with good mortgage experts and prospective home buyers/sellers. Although things are working fine to monthly bills, the entire housing market in my area is gradually shifting online. To maintain a sustainable future growth and long term returns, publishing my own idea online is the only option I am following right now.

    For the "how that works" scenario, I have some idea but before getting into this in real life, just wanted to make sure I am on the right track. :)

    This is true. Real Estate cannot be completely handled by IM. People need to make decisions based on the locations/legal aspects/ custom needs/ sometimes even based on the color of the house.

    IM conversions work with some here. However, this is not a productive approach. People (like brokers/agents) in housing markets buy leads from affiliates/website owners but those leads are quite expensive or over sold in some cases. This can be a good thing for IM owners who just making money by selling leads. Due to the nature of work I am in, I would be more interested in publishing my own portfolio online to connect with people directly.
