4 Affordable Business Ideas

16 / 100

Perhaps you’ve always been interested in starting your own business, but don’t have a lot of money to invest.  However, don’t let that hold you back from pursuing your dreams as an entrepreneur.  

There are businesses out there that you can start without much money at all.  In some cases, you can start your business as soon as right away. In addition, you can operate your business from home without having to rely on an office or bothering with getting in your car.

As long as you’re motivated to put in the work, these business ideas can be an opportunity to make a decent living for yourself, all with the convenience of being the one in charge.

House Cleaning

Cleaning houses can be a great way to make money fast.  There are always people out there looking for a little help around the house from someone reliable.

The more clients that you start to acquire, the more that they’ll recommend you to other potential clients.  If you’re good at what you do, you can expect your schedule to fill up very quickly since there is such high demand from good cleaners.

To beat out the competition, consider offering specialized cleaning services such as blinds, or detailing in hard to reach areas. You’ll need to buy your cleaning supplies, but compared to some business costs, this is a relatively small initial investment.

Selling Goods Online

More and more people are turning to the convenience of online shopping for their needs.  There’s something appealing about being able to buy something with a few clicks without having to bother with parking or traffic.  
Starting your own online store is a great way to make money from the comfort of your own home.  If you choose to sell something which is in considerable demand, you may want to choose eBay as your selling platform.  

However, if you create original goods like jewelry, then you may want to opt for something like Etsy.

Pet Sitting
Busy executives who work long hours are often looking for someone to keep their pooch company during the day.  If you love animals, this job is the perfect way to combine your passions with making money.

Some loving pet owners may want to employ your services while they travel, which would require you to stay at their house while they’re away.  You can charge a significant amount for house sitting combined with pet sitting services, especially if you have a great bond with the animal.


If you have a particular area of knowledge that you specialize in, chances are there’s someone out there who wants help mastering it.  Tutoring can put a significant amount of money in your pocket if you know how to play your cards right.
