Ideas for small business under $100 start up?

What would you think would be a good small business idea that could be started for under $100?? You hear often that the business was started with no more than a few dollars, in the garage or whatever - is it really still possible?


The internet is a great place to advertise and market a service or product. But, what if we wanted to consider reaching those without internet - there are still a few. I was hoping to hear success stories about the person that did not have to rely on this market so much. I did not want to get invited to mass marketing sales, I could do that just about anywhere online. Any other ideas.

    The short answer is yes. And no.

    If you want to open a lemonade stand or have a garage sale, it's totally possible. Your return on your investment will probably be 10% - 25%, which is decent.

    If you really want to start a small business, the $100 is a good downpayment on your license and fees.

    No. Nobody would start a business under somebody else's name for respectable reasons, either he's expecting to be sued or to go bust, or it's some tax man scam. Either way, do not sign.
