100 Businesses You Can Start for Under $500

Read the Free E- book 100 Businesses you can Start for Under $500 by Brian Brooks.INTRODUCTION

If we can, Let us start out with a story.

 Larry is a older man who worked for a well known manufacturing business. He started out with many years ago as a shipping/ receiving clerk. He worked overtime, weekends, had a great attitude/ work ethic and did all the extras. He was subsequently promoted steadily up the corporate ladder, over many years of loyal service. earning a 401K, stock options, the works! Within a year of retirement, he was the V.P. of the Midwest region. His company's 401K and stock options steadily growing since early on in his employment. He also invested the maximum allowed, additional moneys, on a regular basis to this tax shelter program, while also purchasing their publicly traded stock, at employee discount, that had proven stable for many years . Proud as a peacock, at age 58, he would brag to my father that he was only $50,000 away from being a millionaire. They both traded stories and longed for the day that their lunch pails would be replaced by tackle boxes and they would wind out the remaining years of their lives as “fish assassins” of the many lakes of the Midwest. Great plan “right!”

Well as it turned out in 2008 Larry’s manufacturing company had a change of management. (Dad died and his kid took over). Through poor management and a round of corporate fund mismanagement, or some say "embezzlement"! (Of course these people can steal and never go to jail, but that is a whole new book), the company raided the employee pension to pay debt, and to artificially keep the stock price up. About the same time this was going on, the board of directors started selling a large portions of their company stock forcing the price way down while also eliminating dividends for normal investors and employees holding company stock for many years.

So what is Larry doing now? Well, he was forced into retirement early, by the company he showed 36 years of loyalty to. Because they could hire 2 less qualified employees for his current wage. His million dollar retirement was now valued less than $200,000  That is only $4,000 a year interest income to live on! He wakes up every day to enjoy his golden years as a pest control employee, coughing and wheezing from handling dangerous chemicals and lugging around 50 pound containers all day. That is the payoff for being a loyal employee, for many years. Larry is not alone. There are thousands of these horror stories facing baby boomers nationwide.

 We all know that in this day and age, the disparity between employers incomes and their former middle class employees are growing father apart, at a time when real estate, fuel, etc. is soaring at record highs. Most of our employers don’t even know our wives name, birthdays, anniversaries, etc., nor even care. They can take vacations, buy expensive gifts for their spouses and get a new luxury car every year. Their kids can enjoy the benefits of a private school education and new clothing anytime. Maybe this is why they learn to abuse, set themselves above, and feel superior to the employees who have been such a benefit to them for all their lives. Meanwhile you and your co workers seem to put in all of your time and efforts, to the best of your capability, and still struggle!

Here’s the fact: No employer will ever give you a fair shake. In the end they are using your efforts, then charging an inflated rate to someone else for products or services, for those same skills. They have no motivation to help you create wealth, or have financial freedom. It is exactly the opposite. “ The longer they can keep you broke, the easier it is to control you and keep you as their employee, making them money.” The only secret they have is how they accomplished to convince all these people into thinking they care and have no way to change their current situation.

Let me change your life with 1 sentence:

The only way you will have any significant wealth, leisure time, family harmony, hobbies etc. is to get off the “earn to survive treadmill”, and enjoy the income, tax benefits and freedom working for yourself.

Quit counting on an employer to provide you and your family with sustenance. Quit waiting for Management to notice your talents and promote you. Take charge of your own life and give your family the wealth they deserve. Earn respect of customers that are now paying you directly and finally cut out the middleman of Corporate America all together. Only a free person can really enjoy their lives to the fullest. You, my new friend, deserve to give yourself and your loved ones the gift of financial freedom, stability and all the comforts this world has to offer.

But how would you start your own business? How would you get the money? How much time would it take? Who would be my customers?

In the immortal words of Franklin D. Roosevelt: “ The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.


Pep Talk

Welcome to the world of being your own boss, taking command of your future, and most importantly, creating a lifestyle that gives you financial freedom. Most people think that owning a business is a impossibility. They assume that vast amounts of money, time and planning go into every new business. Even most books on the subject will intimidate the new entrepreneur into thinking that starting your own business is for someone with a lot of money, is extremely intelligent, with a vast education and contacts with wealthy people. I am here to tell you that all of these notions are ridiculous.

In all reality the most profitable and stable businesses are created by common people everyday, without vast resources or educational background. The key to being a business owner is to develop a lifestyle that takes into account your dreams, family, friends, hobbies and financial needs first. After these needs and dreams are identified you can find many businesses that will cater to your “Lifestyle”. You just need to pick one. Many business owners started out part time while they kept their current job. Once they got over the learning curve of their new venture and made substantial profits, they quit their job. It only makes sense, because now they make a higher income by working for themselves, along with having the freedom of a flexible schedule to enjoy their family and friends.

At this point life takes on a new meaning. There is more time for dreams and family. Your financial security is always assured, because of the self discipline you now master will always keep your substantial income solidly in your own hands. Work hard and make a lot of money on your own knowledge, unique talents and effort. It may be hard for a year or two, but anyone in business for themselves will tell you it gets far easier over time. Most would never work for anyone else ever again now they know all the freedoms of owning their own business.

Use this e-book as a guide for the formulation of your new business, as well as a handy resource that identifies professionals for small issues that will inevitably arise in your first year or two. Also included in this book is a list of 100 very successful businesses that can be started for under $500. we also offer web links to go into further detail on a variety of subjects to help ensure your success. Armed with this knowledge you will have many necessary tools to create the “Lifestyle” of your dreams, with  a successful business you and your family will be proud of and enjoy for many years.

Congratulations! You have already demonstrated the number 1 trait that shows me that you will succeed. Self motivation is the lifeblood of your business. The simple fact you are reading this e- book shows that you are already looking for more out of your life and are willing to invest your personal time and resources to make you and your family's dreams come true. Keep this attitude and give yourself a year or two and you will create the “Lifestyle” that only people who completely control their own destiny can enjoy.

Freedom is the ability to make choices. Let me ask you a very targeted question.

When was the last time you remember having compete control of your future? Was it before you learned the responsibility of marriage, a job, kids, mortgages, bills. Do you feel like your life is controlled by your bills. Would you work at your current job if you had a choice?

A majority of people would tell you they are only spokes in the wheel. They work to barely survive and get very little personal satisfaction from their jobs. But need money to pay the bills. They are firmly running on the "Earn to Survive" treadmill. They would do so much more, in their life, if they only had more time and money

Well, I am here to tell you! You are a master of your own destiny. You hold the power to make a huge impact on your life and many others lives as well. You are powerful and experienced! You hold the key to the “Lifestyle” of your dreams. Go outside and proclaim, “ I am a money making machine! I am a Master of my own Destiny!, I am all Powerful and Knowledgeable!” I’m not kidding do this!

Are you back and motivated now. Let’s get to work.

You can have different meals/ food type for each day of the  week to keep it from being boring for your customers, plus this will stimulate repeat business as you will very quickly know what your customers want.

5.) Automobile Maintenance

If you are a good mechanic, then you already know that you are in demand. Start out by fixing friends cars, do oil changes, clean and detail, etc. You can write off many new tools, small equipment and rent the garage space in your home to your business to help with your mortgage/ rent. Expand by selling autos you fix up at an inflated price, buy a building and offer more services to more people. If you are a auto enthusiast, this can be a great business.


6.) Aquarium/ Aquatic Maintenance

Go to local businesses and show the value of having an aquarium/ waterfalls/ water gardens in their business and home.

9.) Manufacturing

There are hundreds of items people make. From knit blankets to fishing lures there is never a shortage of stuff people will buy. This is already a hobby for most people, but you can easily improve current techniques and equipment to mass produce these items. Then put them on Ebay, take them to stores, flea markets and special events to be sold. Expansion will allow you to make larger quantities of your items at decreased costs to supply larger businesses. Write off all supplies, travel, warehouse space, marketing, packaging, etc. Work the hours you want and fill those orders. There are also many finished products that you can purchase and combine them in a group package, or make the item more valuable. There is a rich guy who didn't invent bread or slicing, but his idea was as good. When is the last time you heard of something as big as "Sliced Bread"


10.) Assembly Company

Almost all furniture and large ticket items sold in this country, require assembly. Go to local stores that sell these items and offer them to assemble their large ticket items for their customer on site. Whether they buy a new Entertainment Center, Bicycle, Bed, etc. you will deliver and assemble the item for them. most stores will offer the service as a way to increase sales and pay you out of the store. Be ready to be busy during Christmas. Write offs are unlimited and you can easily expand into selling these same items in your own store.

Printers offer Honor Boxes that have food items in them with a small slot for money. These are to be placed, at the location with a variety of snacks in the box. Most boxes fit 100 items and give the owner a profit of $80 for every refill. It is a good idea to give 10% to a local charity and place a sticker from the charity on the box. This will decrease the amount of snacks not paid for. You should also make sure the employer guarantees that they will cover any shortages. Use your affiliation with the charity to make sure you will not experience theft and guilt the owner into paying any shortages. As you grow, buy electric vending machines to replace the honor boxes. Most vending machine owners average about $100.00 per machine per visit and work few hours. To realize big money about 40 locations are required at good locations. Write offs are plentiful and the freedom of this kind of business is unsurpassed.


12.) Swap Meet Supplies

For every flea market and swap meet in America, you would think that supplies such as poles for tents, price tags, banners, etc. would be available. this is not true. Every person I know that specialized in the equipment for swap meet vendors, is doing extremely well. Go to a local Home Depot or related store and custom cut poles and fasteners to create a marketable sales environment for vendors. Expansion is easily done by offering merchant accounts for credit cards and other high ticket items in event marketing. You can also rent the tents and banners for a variety of other special events. Write offs are many and you only have to work weekends.


13.) Maid Service

Start a Residential Cleaning Business! Retail Promotions of AZ can get you all the Marketing/ Printing Materials to get startedEvery person that does not have the time or like to clean is your customer. Grab a couple of pails and your cleaning supplies and get to work. Expansion is very easy and cheap, because you can pay additional employees on a 1099 basis. That means you are not responsible for any additional taxes or insurances, because each employee is an independent contractor. The only limit to your income is how many accounts you can get. Offer your employees at $25 / hour and keep half the money. there is a reason that janitorial services make up the largest segment of franchises sold. "They make money!"

14.) Write a Book

Every person out there has experience and unique information about topics that other people would want to know. Take a little time and great thought in writing a manual/ book. You can print the book or offer it on the internet (E-Book). Target your market according to the topic of your book and sell it. The beauty of this business is that it opens the door to public speaking and media interviews as an additional revenue stream. Also, once the book is written you can just sit back and sell it. There is little overhead and high profit.

print-web-pg-graphic15.) Get yourself a Real Estate License.

The average real estate professional after 2 years in the business earns over $100,000. Since a Real Estate Agent is an Independent Contractor, all the tax write offs discussed earlier apply. You do not have to have any great sales ability to sell Real Estate. Most of the time homes sell themselves. With your new knowledge you can invest, buy and sell or rent real estate on your own and easily build hundreds of thousands of dollars of net worth every year. Most licenses are under $500 and vary per state. Courses last about 8 –12 weeks and agents are always in demand. You can easily keep your current job and be a real estate agent at the same time.

16.) Pest Control Specialist

There are two common variables in life. There are thousands of bugs versus every person on this planet and no person wants to live with even one of them in their home. The tools needed to spray for bugs and rodent removal are cheap. You will need to get a license to handle the chemicals at a nominal fee. After this is done, you simply find accounts. Find out what the competition is charging and go get as many accounts as you can handle. You can charge about $50/ visit and write off many personal expenses. You can add employees as independent contractors so you don’t have to worry about additional Payroll Taxes.

17.) While you are away Home Care

Homeowners need tons of services. Start a Business! Retail Promotions of AZ can get you all the Marketing/ Printing Materials to get startedThere are many people in this country that travel for long periods of time. While they are gone, you go to the house daily and pick up/ forward the mail, keep the yard mowed, make sure the timers for the lights are working, etc. People pay about $20 per visit for this piece of mind. You can do 40 visits in a week easily. You use the homeowners belongings instead of your own. Also growth can be achieved by doing additional tasks while the clients are away (clean the basement, garage, change oil, spray, etc.) and you can get your client list from local travel agents.

18.) Wallboard/ Bathroom Advertising

This is a great small business. Solicit as few as 5 advertisers and charge them ad space per month at any retail bathroom. Get the retail businesses to agree to the advertising by paying them a yearly fee or free advertising. Then just place ads in poster frames, in restrooms around your area. When you get into a location you just go by once and a while to make sure the ad looks good with a bottle of Windex. The last person I know who did this had 50 locations in his first year, billed out $100/ per month per location. That’s right $5,000/ month for hiring a printer and driving around with Paper Towels and Windex.

19.) Mobile Advertising

It looks easy and it is. You can make big $$$ with a few costumes and a playful nature! Start a Human Billboard Business! Retail Promotions of AZ can get you all the Marketing/ Printing Materials to get startedHave you seen the las vegas trucks pulling around a trailer with a large billboard sign advertising a special event. This is mobile advertising. Many Car Dealers, Event Coordinators, Taverns, Restaurants use these services at $200-500/ Day. Just custom brace a large billboard on a trailer and drive around the target area all day. Expansion is easy by just purchasing more trailers and hiring individuals as independent contractors to do the driving. Write offs are many and profit is high in this kind of business. You can also contract for farmers land on highways and other high traffic areas where painted semi-trailers and permanent signs can be placed to expand your business.

20.) Promoter

Do you like live music/ theatre/ comedy? Just go find yourself a local venue. Talk to the city for permits then sell tickets to your event. Additionally contract out the food and beverage vendors ( which pay you very well), and sell tickets. You can use off duty police for security through the local police department. The average on a 1,000 person event generates about $10,000- $40,000 in revenue for concessions ( That you take 15– 25% of) and if you charge $20/ Ticket that is an extra $20,000 ( Minus the cost of security and entertainment) in your pocket.

21.) Mobile Dent Repair/ Auto Detailing

Go to a customers place of work, take the car to a wash and then detail it right in the parking lot. You can offer additional services like window tinting/ windshield repair, dent removal, etc. If you do a great job, I guarantee new customers in every parking lot you work at. Place a sticker on the window like the oil change guys. Offer a free detail for 10 referrals. You can again expand with independent contractors for additional clients. It is also a good idea to leave a calendar, pen, refrigerator magnet, etc. to keep your company in the mind of the customer at all times. Most of these professionals make in excess of $500/ day

22.) Book a Large Vacation

I did this in college. Go to a travel company and see what kind of discount you can get for booking 100 people to go on a vacation. Most of the time the saving is up to 50%. Then take their free materials and get your friends and family to come with you on a vacation. On an average ticket of $1000/ vacation you can put $500 per person in your pocket. Work it out so you get a free vacation and a suite. You have no costs as far as sales materials, because they are supplied by the travel agency. If you do 4 vacations per year that is a gross profit of $200,000. It is very smart to have a theme with your vacations ( Away Football Games, NASCAR, Singles Trips, Elderly People Singles Cruises, etc.) that way your customers will keep coming back every year with friends of their own.

23.) Pool Maintenance

100-Cleaning the filterIf you live in an area with a lot of swimming pools and love being active and outside this can be your dream job. Go to a home and maintain the cleanliness and chemical levels of the pool/ spa. Get clients by advertising by phone, flyer, and value packs. Your average visit should be under 30 minutes at a fee of around $100/ month. One person can handle up to 200 accounts netting a gross profit of $20,000/ month. This is a business that also can employ the services of independent contractors. Work as little or as much as you want and write off a ton of expenses.

Flyer-clist-fly-guy-f2f124.) Computer Assistance

With the growing number of people using computers along with the computer industry’s inability to give reasonable customer support at a reasonable price you can benefit. Simply offer telephone and on site assistance to people that have general computer/ software questions. You can get additional certifications through computer software companies and they will refer clients to you from their customer service department. You can also offer you services for assembly of new systems and equipment and use local retail computer stores as referral services.

25.) Auction Service

Are you an big league yard sale person? Take your talents to get people to list their items in your auction. Much Like event coordinating you charge an event fee (Ticket), take a percentage from the vendors, and take a 20– 50% cut from the sale of the item. Do one auction per month and pull down big bucks. You have many write offs and a high chance of success in the Auction Business. You can also set up silent auctions for large ticket items.

26.) Personal Trainer

100-personal-trainerAre you a person who spends a lot of time in the gym. You are needed by a multitude of overweight people. You can teach them the correct ways to exercise to maximize the effectiveness of the workout, while teaching them about safety. These professionals also help in the areas of proper diet and nutrition. The simple fact is that very few people can self motivate themselves to work out on a consistent basis. Your role as their personal trainer will pay them great dividends in their personal wellness while at the same time putting money in your pocket. Trainers can have a s many as 3 clients at the same time and charge according to their knowledge/ education. Expansion can be achieved by selling vitamins/ health equipment and building your own gym.

27.) Karaoke Host

I Love to Sing! I will go to a Karaoke Bar before any other form of entertainment. What most people do not know is that with a couple of Microphones, a few cables and some discs that your home stereo can easily be a Karaoke Machine. You can contract out to local taverns, weddings, birthdays, private parties and the best part is that your vocal abilities will be better than ever before. As a Karaoke Host your business can sell its services for up to $500 per night. Expansion is easy by adding discs to your collection and making your show more classy. You can write off a ton of music equipment for yourself and work as much or as little as you want. Who Knows? Maybe you will be the next American Idol.

28.) Locksmith

Have you ever re-keyed a lock? Do you know how to use a Slim Jim? You have all the necessary skills to be a locksmith. Every year thousands of people in your area need to change locks. Whether because of a move or because of security, you are in demand. In this business you will want to use a number in the name of your business and buy a big ad in the phone book. When people are in need you want them to see you first.

29.) Car Battery Jumps for events

I know of a way you can make $200/ day with an equipment cost of less than $100. Just take a car battery fasten it to a dolly and contract with local grocery stores, retail outlets to jump start dead cars. Charge $30 per jump and carry a cell phone with the number you have given. If you want, go to any event where a lot of people park their car. For every 200 people parked, one will need your assistance. If a tow truck is called they know they will spend $100. Keep a tow strap in the car in case they need to get to a garage and charge a fee plus mileage to get that car to their home or a garage. Work until you have the money to lease a tow truck then you are making over $2000/ week and can contract with local garages and police.

30.) Daycare/ Baby Sitting

If you love kids. You can be a Great Service to your Community making sure they are safe and happy! Start a Daycare Business! Retail Promotions of AZ can get you all the Marketing/ Printing Materials to get startedDo you love kids? Every person in life needs a baby sitter from time to time. Traditionally young teens will do the job, but more and more people are concerned at the quality of care their children are receiving. Take the required space in your home and build a playroom with toys and video games for children of all ages. Instead of going to a clients home, have them bring the kids to you. One capable person should be able to handle multiple children. Depending on your area some licensing may be required, but it is minimal. You can charge $20 + $4 per hour and make up to $1,500/ week. All of the improvements to your home are write offs. To expand, create a daycare at another private office. State government have many grants and additional assistance when operating this kind of business.

31.) Work With a Charity

Many people do not associate charity as a way to make money, but how wrong they are.

Pick a charity already established or start your own. Take 50% of the proceeds and donate them while using the other 50% to pay for print materials and your salary. You will be giving money to people who need it through your efforts and your tax write offs are next to none as a charitable business. I cannot think of any better way to make money in this society than helping people. Just because you take a percentage doesn’t make it unethical. You need to make money too. No organization will say no to the donation because they know 50% is better than 0. A matter a fact, most nationally recognized charities give less than 25% of monies made to their cause.

Check with Your Local Government to make sure you are following all State and Federal Guidelines. Don't be a "Scammer" or break any laws. If you cheat needy people you are a Scumbag!

32.) Pet Grooming

Start a Pet Grooming Business! Retail Promotions of AZ can get you all the Marketing/ Printing Materials to get startedIf you love animals than this is the business for you. Proper animal grooming is essential for the health and longevity of any animal. Give each animal a hair trim and a bath. If you want, build a kennel in your back yard so pets can be dropped off and picked up later. You can also board animals while people are away and care for them. Every 1.6 households in America have a pet. Just convince your owners that you are a major key in the animals health and happiness. You can expand by building a bigger kennel and selling pet supplies.

33.) Selling Long Distance

Selling pre paid phone cards is a billion dollar business. With a few phone calls to local long distance companies you can get bulk minutes for under a penny a minute. Help local businesses and people by purchasing bulk minutes for their phone service at 50% off what they are paying now and make a lot of money doing it.

Get TV Service for as Low as $29.99/ month34.) Shoe Shining

I was pleasantly surprised one day between flights. A nice older gentleman offered to shine up my boots for $5. I had the time to kill so I said yes. He talked at length about politics, his grandkids and being old. When we were done, about five minutes later, I asked him how long he had done this job. He replied he had done this for 5 years, before that, he was a teacher of geography. I a puzzled look I asked him why he quit teaching. He said “I could never make this kind of money teaching!”. He put a shine on about 100 pairs of shoes a day and walked home with an average of $600 per day. I agreed that he should stay in business and if I ever get to Atlanta again I will definitely see him. You can do the same if you can find a high foot traffic area with extended waiting. You may have to give the location owner a cut, but if it is a good area “so what”.

35.) Bathroom Attendants

100-Bathroom Attendant Work StationI love these guys. After you are done in the restroom they are waiting with a paper towel, comb, cologne, a little gum/ cigar to make you look, feel and smell your best. You may be surprised to know that these people are actually independent contractors hired by the establishment. I have talked to many and most pull in about between $200-$500 per night. The business hires them at a fee to keep the restrooms sparkling clean during the busy times and they keep the tips. Expansion can be achieved by hiring other staff at other locations.

36.) Shopping Cart Repair

If you have been on this planet for a short time you are aware that there are many shopping carts in every large store that are less than a pleasure to use. Whether a broken wheel, cage, or just plain dirt and grime. Every cart should be maintained with oil and repairs at least once a month. Charge per the hour or just a straight fee to assure local stores will always have carts that make their customers shopping experience a good one. Most will let you number and put an ad in the cart saying “please tell us if your cart is not working” the store takes out the problem carts and you fix them. Expansion can come by signing up more stores and selling them refurbished shopping carts from businesses that you have acquired broken/ used carts from, that are fixed and good as new.

37.) Tree Trimming/ Removal Service

Offer to trim trees and remove dead ones. You only need a few yard tools and a chain saw, ladder and twine to get into this business. Just leave your card at any door that you think can use work and start chopping. You can use the dead trees as firewood to sell in the winter, and burn the brush to create organic mulch, for gardeners. Expansion can be accomplished by offering more services and starting a nursery of your own.

100.) Vending Routes

Printers offer Honor Boxes that have food items in them with a small slot for money. These are to be placed, at the location with a variety of snacks in the box. Most boxes fit 100 items and give the owner a profit of $80 for every refill. It is a good idea to give 10% to a local charity and place a sticker from the charity on the box. This will decrease the amount of snacks not paid for. You should also make sure the employer guarantees that they will cover any shortages. Use your affiliation with the charity to make sure you will not experience theft and guilt the owner into paying any shortages. As you grow, buy electric vending machines to replace the honor boxes. Most vending machine owners average about $100.00 per machine per visit and work few hours. To realize big money about 40 locations are required at good locations. Write offs are plentiful and the freedom of this kind of business is unsurpassed.
