How much money do I need to start a business

Doing business is truly great job. But starting a business need 3 resources.
1. Money
2. Mind
3. Mass
Of these money is most important. But hold a minute, this article is about starting a business with no money.
You have an skill and you sell it to someone for few bucks. It's not wrong. But point is, many people need your skill if you sell it to many you can get more few bucks and further more bucks.

Everyone want to do this but many hold the idea back in hope of, perhaps next year will be good, by then I will save more to invest in business. Often many found themself at the same spot after one year, then next year and then next.
Idea of setting an office is really cool. It is truly wonderful when your accounts report you last quarter profits. But to reach to that point you need resources.
If you have an idea of doing business in mind do not hold back.
You don't need money at all to start a business.
You are the best salesperson for your skills. No one else can sale better than you.
Start small, take very first step. Reach out to your potential customers. Offer them your service for a price. Your price could be zero for first customer, your earning could be zero from first customer. But your goal is to get first satisfied customer. When you achieve this goal you will build a sense of confidence. Next you will promote your service in much better way.
And when there are takers money will flow in automatically.
A satisfied client will give you positive reviews and perhaps some references too. If not then too you have one completed work under your belt to showcase in your business portfolio.
Starting small has many benefits:
1. Learning customer psychology
2. No monetary losses
3. Strong network in your market
4. High level of confidence building
5. True knowledge of what customer want
6. Better personal branding
7. Less expenses on advertising when you expand
Do not leave your job for starting business. Indeed first use leverage of available time out of job to get the first client.
First gather momentum in business. Reach to an earning threshold equivalent to your monthly expenses. Then give a relook to whether you need to resign from day job.
If you are starting this way, ideal time to resign from day job is when you have funds for atleast 3 or 6 months expenses in your bank. The more the better.
Going this way is pretty tough, it's very small when you want to share dinner table with Warren Buffet.
But
Small things are made big with right efforts.

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket.

No matter how many money making classes yo

Why documentation is important for bloggers

More often I received requests to improve website SEO or build a new website or improve an existing one. One common problem with lot of those website owners and bloggers is they do not have any documents about their expectations. They say do it best, do it as you like, I mean business. Or maximum they present some similar site. Imagine a legal professional showing you a similar site and its about a hotel or resort. That is not the story of most novice only. Even people in IoT business since over a decade and software professionals act numb. This simply put off me. Whenever you start a blog or website, ask yourself Why I am creating this website? Who are my prospects? What I expect from this website? How this website well fulfill my expectation? How I want this site to look like? How I will promote this website? How often I will need upgrade? How much budget and time I can allocate for this? Write down answers to above questions and any additional one that you have? To help you design p
