Shoestring startups how I made $500 to $1000 a month with little or no investment .

Shoe string startups . Who would like to make an extra $500 to $1000 a month or more with little or no up front cost ? These are proven cottage industry businesses I have created over the years that are fun and produce results. A great way to finance your micro house project. Would an extra $500 or $1000 a month make a difference to you ? It has for me and let me tell you when money is tight you can get really creative about how to make more . I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth ( more like aluminum ) but it never stopped me from creating ways to make an extra buck . I always look for an opportunity to create a new income over the years and with little or no investment I have been very successful at it .

There are certain criteria I always run any potential side venture thru before I consider it viable . First will it fit into my current schedule . Is it something I can do around my current work week without interfering with it. Next is it interesting to me . Will I enjoy doing it and have fun. 3 can I gain the skills to do it rapidly or do I already have them. 4 how much of an investment will I need to consider . 5 how quickly can I get it to market . ( notice I haven’t said how much will I make yet) 6 could there be a demand for this product or service . Is this something people would be interested in and want or need ( notice I said want or need ) people will buy for both reasons if properly motivated. And last but not least can I make a good profit for my time doing this . If I’m going to take my extra free time from my family I want a good return on my investment . As a side note it helps if you are earning it to accomplish a goal like paying off a debt or saving for a vacation or a big purchase .

So in no particular order here are some of the things my wife and I have done very successfuly over the years to make a healthy extra buck . Build bunkbeds , raise and sell puppy’s, grow plants, raise hogs, baby sit, make adirondack chairs, woodcrafts , sew baby clothes, raise small animals for pet stores, tax prep, bookkeeping, raise rabbits, Raise worms.

If any of these  sound interesting and would fit in your life they are all viable , fun and lucrative ways to create extra cash for taking the edge off the cash crunch we all seem to have every month . If you want to learn more about how to do any of these projects let me know I have guides available for a small investm

    Thank you for posting this info. I’m interested in bookeeping. Can you provide resources and guides that would help me to get started with this small business?
