MBA2191 Can You Start a Business With Zero Capital?

They say “it takes money to make money.”

We say: Hold my beer.

You don’t need major investment or capital saved up to create a business. In fact, just to show how little you can start with, today we explore how to start with nothing! 

Before he was the game-changing business coach and SaaS founder we know and love today, Omar had to start from scratch — without any scratch. In this episode, he shares how he started a real business with nothing but a little networking, creativity, and gumption. 

And of course, you can do the same.

It may take a little time, but starting with little or nothing is actually one of the best ways to see if a business really has legs. Why sink money into something that may or may not work? Instead, you can know for sure that something works so well, it doesn’t even need a cash kickstarter.

If startup capital is what’s holding you back, give this episode a listen. It just might open your eyes to the possibilities. Click Play!
