In the recession ridden times that we find ourselves in now many people would like to start their own one thing that is holding them back, or they think is holding them back, is the absence of capital.
However it is possible to start a business with no capital provided you have access to a computer and an internet your local library can provide you with this facility.
You will need to spend some time building your business but with a bit of research, using your head and a bit of elbow power there is absolutely nothing preventing you from starting your own business.
The way you can do this is by setting up a free webpage and selling affiliate products. If you have access to a tiny amount of capital then you can set up your own website or blog with a small investment of less than $10 in your own well chosen domain name.
If you have absolutely no capital then you can set up your webpage on . Essentially what you will be doing is selling other peoples products either on your own domain name or Squidoo page and earning commission on each and every sale with no investment on your part..except the time it takes to set up and drive traffic to your site.
To drive traffic to your site you will need to write articles which are helpful to your target market and which will attract them to your webpage where you will hopefully make sales of your affiliate product which will involve solving some problem that your visitor has.
There is a huge amount of information available free on the internet with a wide range of possiblilites. One of the best that I have come across recently is working as a medical transcriptionist from home.
Many professionals, particularly doctors and lawyers, are outsourcing a lot of their day to day administrative work from the office thereby reducing overheads. This offers great opportunities in transcription working from home and all you really need is a computer and good, accurate typing skills.
