I don't lack the ideas or the ambition, I lack the motivation. Is that because I haven't found what my passion is yet??

send me the detail of how to join it,


well unfortunately Im not lazy or greedy...if when all is said and done I would be happy making 30k a year from this...however it will make alot more than that...its a Gamestop on steroids! need $57400 to get started need an investor partner or world dominator. Will trade all franchise ownership rights & 30% of biz for 1st 4 year. that adds up to 134400 the first year plus your initial investment and that number will triple by the 2nd.


I want to earn some money without pay anything But after earn u can cut from my account, If there is any plan for that kind I really want to join that


I think that what you have become is so awesome and one day i hope that i can do the same be an aspiring massage therapist;but right now i dont have the resources to start now. what do you think i need to do to be aggresive and combat my fear of starting.CORA in NASSAU BAHAMAS.


i just want to start a small business and i need some finance to help me get through it. It is a very profitable business and i pray God will see me through.


Most people that end up at this thread are looking to find a quick-fix and wish to walk in someone's footprints. You need to literally initiate your very own journey, entertain your passion and all other necessary condiments needed to fuel your idea, will eventually find you. Trust and believe in yourself and destiny will take care of the rest. Good success.


lot of good and great talks i just gone through your blog i find very interesting but practicaly lot of problem any how if someone have a zeal he or she can do anything . a positive attitude helps a lot rest beleive in GOD almighty.....

warm regards

Amazing. I think it is the first time I read of somebody making a great business from nothing without referring to some internet related venture and some shady techniques. I like the paradigm shifting part too. It's part of my favorite quote:

"once a man's mind is stretched by a new idea, it never regains its original dimension"

Hi, my name ia Lisa and I want to start a buisness of my own in the music industry. Like many people who have a dream, I have no funds and wanted to follow the method explained above but don't really know how to get started. Knowledge is the key to understanding, this I know. I guess the first step is getting all of that knowledge and better understand it before I jump to plan D.

I strongly believe that no matter what educational background you might have, no matter how much financial success you might have, your own personal development, success and self improvement begin with your own happiness; and as I have lived, you cannot be happy working a job you don't feel passionate about. It’s that passion that will take you to work every day for 8+ hours with a smile on your face, and make sure you leave your work with that same smile, almost eager to return the next morning after a good night, and plenty rest. And this should make almost any busy successful, financially.
Love the post!!

Pissed off at people's bullshit

Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. You cannot make money unless you have money! This IS common sense. If you make yourself an expert at something, that doesn't mean you will automatically roll in the dough. This article is for ignorant people OR those that already have money.

Great article. I enjoy hearing about entrepreneurs who triumph potentially devastating situations and rise from it with a leaner, more efficient business and go on to achieve everything they desire.

Daisy Ocampo

Wow! its great to know that there are people like you still out there, now and days people has lost the perspective about what it is to work. Customer Service is very poor now in days for the reason that all we think about is making money instead of what relly matters, communication, respect and being polite to others. Thank you for posting your story.


I'm starting my own business right now, and I'm not worrying about finding tons of investment capital. I'm confident that my free methods are going to pan out just fine in the long run.

Hi Everyone,
I hope that someone reading this post will be able to give me some good advice. I want to start a drive-thru coffee shop in a small town of 6000+ people, but I do not know where to begin. I don't have the funds on hand and I don't know how to go about getting it. I don’t think any bank is going to give me a loan because of it. To make a long story short, my ex-boyfriend has ruined my credit and I had to file bankruptcy because of it. I have dreamed of starting this business for a very long time. I am almost positive a drive-thru coffee shop will succeed in this town. The only place a person can get a specialty coffee is at the convenience stores or the fast food restaurants. The location is perfect because it is on the corner of a highway and the town’s main street. If you feel you can help, please e-mail me at [email protected] and put “advice” in the subject line so that I know it is not spam. Thank you.

just hope it's works for me


Thanks for this great article. If you are looking to start a business but are in need of capital, there is a really interesting website that just launched called Businessmic.com.

Essentially, it is a way for entrepreneurs to post their ideas online to tons of investors. Entrepreneurs are allowed to create a short video that showcases their idea, whether it be a brand new technology, a business plan, or an improvement to an existing product.
Meanwhile, investors can sort through videos based on criteria such as industry and amount of funding requested.

Since it just started, now is a perfect time to get your idea heard first. Also, for a limited time, they are allowing you to upload your video for only one penny!

Carlos manrique

It's very interesting that you don't put heavy emphasis on money, but the passion that drives you to achieve your dreams....then money comes.
I share your views and wrote a post on "How to start a business with no money", just like yours.
I invite you all to read and compare notes.


Carlos manrique

"Bootstrapping" is colloquial English which means: "Building a business out of very little or virtually nothing. Boot strappers rely usually on personal income and savings, ...", from Google definitions.

You can copy and paste words you don't understand on the browser bar and Google will define.
I highly suggest this practice: Looking up the meaning of words and phrases. Your understanding will increase tenfold. It's like restoring sight to a blind person.

It's all about putting your ideas and effort together, that is the key or way to success, you also need ideas from others who are already in business, asking them what they have done to achieve their goals.

i want to start new business and i have no money to start with


Just a general comment: This is the best blog... ever! :-)


I learned nothing useful from this post.
Anyway,what is bootstrapping?
I assume it's hard work?
Tell me how hard work and no money makes a business survive?

One thing is noticable about these useless blogs and that is the predictable adoring comments that follow. They all sound the same! Could it be that they are not .....genuine?

Fred Gratzon

Dear Michael,
Bootstrapping is starting a business from scratch. But it's not hard work; it's got to be an expression of fun/passion/love of the challenge. Otherwise it probably won't get very high off the ground.

In my case, I started two businesses without a dime in my pocket and no knowledge of the industries I was entering. Of course I soon had to take on investors. But I didn't put any of my own money into them. I didn't have any to put in.

My ice cream company made Inc magazine list of the 500 fastest growing companies in 1988 and my telecom company made it three times in 1995, 1996, & 1997. In 1995 it was listed as the second fastest growing company in America. I took it public in 1998. That year it grossed $338 million.

In both cases my companies were fueled by fun, play, passion, and joyful collaboration. I honestly couldn't wait to get up in the morning to do it some more. I never once regarded any of it as "work." It was just too much fun.

Jennifer Boyle

I don’t agree to the blogger. You somehow need cash to start up a business. Even if it is just a simple selling of used cars. You have other things to prepare still.


Hi Fred, I am so glad I lucked upon on this! I do hope you are still around, I have this passion and really have my mind set on starting my own home based business then move to a shop later or another building later. I would Love to get in contact with you and see if you can suggest any ideas or help me out, if you dont mind Please. Thank you Patricia

I rarely leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here The Lazy Way to Success: How to Start a Business without Money. And I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of these comments look as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other social sites, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
