While is it important to have enough capital to venture into business, all hands are not equal, some have no money to start.

The level of poverty in some countries is a factor that determines start-up in most businesses, meaning in poorer climes, it is pretty difficult to start up a business compared with nations of immeasurable wealth and class 

It is practically impossible to start any business without money, but the government of some nations of the world has made friendly policies for ease in doing business. We will be looking at a threshold of between $50 to $70 or no money as a start-up.

In this article, we will pinpoint some businesses one can start with little or no money, and when taking seriously, it will turn into a multi-million dollar business. 


Master of the Ceremony (MC)/A Professional Speaker 

This is one business that demands less or no money to start, there are few persons into this business as of 2021. Anyone can be a professional speaker, while many are gifted in talking, others are not.

People hire speakers at the event such as; seminars, wedding ceremonies, birthday parties, end of the year parties, book launch, religious gathering, and the list goes endless.

MC or professional speakers are paid heavily, what seems like a “low-class profession” may give you the total yearly take-home pay for some white-collar jobs in some countries 

Being a professional speaker is a lucrative job that needs no fund to start, it requires some minor skills, which can be learned easily 

Instead of waiting for the big tech companies for a job, with huge demands and skills, while not take a professional speaker if talented? It may be a blessing in disguise

Career Guide 

These are businesses the society is not investing in, many persons have chosen the wrong career path as a result of “lack of career guide”, and going into a career guide is as lucrative as the job of a “rocket scientist”

This is because a person who gives a guide as a “career” helps many not to go astray regarding what they want in life. Setting up a Career Guide as a business and collecting fee for every client is a business that can earn you thousands of dollars within the short time. One reaches out to hundreds of schools, educate pupils and even write to parents, the deal is done 

Teaching Business

The teaching profession knows no bounds, it can never be done by only professionals or those in the education line.

Contents Writer
