I want to start a business but I don’t have money. What do I do?

When you say “I don’t have money” what does that really mean?

Are you eating?

Are you sleeping somewhere?

Do you buy anything extra in your life?

Of course, a person needs to eat and sleep and have their other basic needs met. But, if you are doing anything extra—like buying a Starbucks on the way to work, snacking on candy bars during your breaks, or even eating super nice meals—then you have money.

When you start a business, you really have to bootstrap and only buy what is absolutely necessary for your survival. If that sounds intense, well—it is.

Once you’ve cut out any and all extra costs, you may be able to get enough funds to at least get a working product. You need something tangible if you want to attract investors which is the next way you can get some money for your business.

However, this part of the game requires a lot of organization, a clear understanding of your business, and something that proves that you’re worth the investment.
