I don’t know who needs to read this, but you don’t need funding to start a business.

If you’re building an internet-based business, a high percentage of ventures can be launched for less than $100-1,000. The cost of starting new things has dramatically decreased, yet many people still have 1990s mentalities.

Last year, I had a woman tell me that she needed to raise $500k before launching her recruiting business. Yes, she wanted a half-million dollars to launch a company that’s only initial expense would be her time.

I understand that there’s nuance here and that some things do require money to start. But please don’t fall into the trap of believing that you need to raise millions of dollars to build something that costs less than $1,000.

Just. Get. Started.

I've been building digital businesses, wandering the world, and writing about optimizing life for freedom since early 2017. My mission is to lower the barrier for people who want to live with more freedom: whether that be as an entrepreneur, a digital nomad, an early retiree, or just as someone who wants to live a happiness-driven life.
