One of the common barriers to starting any kind of business is the sheer fact that you need money to invest in your business. This can be as basic as getting a website or purchasing the goods to resell. But people often don’t proceed because they say they have no money right now to invest. So how can they start generating income when they can’t even get the thing started due to a lack of funds?
This remark kind of surprises me because I would have thought most people get the urge to create their own business as a result of working for someone else. But I suppose nowadays with so many ways to create something online even without any real experience a lot of people seem to overlook that the easiest way to make some immediate money which to simply work at common job.
You could argue that’s not what you want to do with your life and so that is not an option. But even for myself I have worked in places like fast food restaurants. It wasn’t my aspiration to be making burgers forever but I was able to learn so much where in some ways it’s almost like a paid form of hands on schooling. Working as an employee is a pretty safe way to earn money too as technically it’s the entrepreneur that takes all the risk.
As well you can build your business on the side while still having some steady income. When the time comes you can then be the full time entrepreneur. You have to recognize too that unless someone was lucky it often took a long time to get to where they are. Unless you have wealthy people around you to get money from or your business will require all sweat equity to build initially there is nothing wrong with starting by simply being an employee.
