Melanie’s Answer

It depends on what type of business you would like to get into. If you are starting a franchise, it depends on the start up costs. If you are building your own personal business you can start with any amount of money. As far as business is concerned you can move at the pace that your business requires. If you are starting a consulting business and working for yourself then you may only need marketing and advertising costs. I think it really just depends on the industry.

One of the best small business to start-up right now is the Amazon Delivery service - The issue is that they want the $10,000 as a start up - but also want you to have $30,000 in reserve. But it would be a great idea to see if you can negotiate with them to give you a chance. At this time if you are a good cook and interested in being involved in this activity - creating a simple, easy and good tasting meal for seniors is a easy way to start a catering business. You will need to set aside at least 1/2 half of your money to get advertising - social media - print media and keep your price point between $8 - $12 -and you will be busier than you think

Russ recommends the following next steps:

Determine within your neighborhood how many seniors are around
Print up simple flyers with email and phone number asking if they would like a simple meal service
Note - meals on wheels does charge - but by being creative in meal descriptions - seniors will buy from you
You will need to see what business license you will need - and catering requirements - license - allocate $1,000 as a cover cost
Be creative - and expand on the healthy but extremely yummy factors

Even with a fewer budget you can kick off your business (as far as services are concerned). The most important thing is to be involved in business area that inspire you. Otherwise it would end up with a disaster. Many entrepreneurs regret they had to sacrifice too much time on getting to know new stuff they weren't really interested in. Every kind of business may be brilliant till you're master in that part of industry. Focus on your end-customers: create a potential persona who may use your product/services. Consider how you can satisfy them and why they should choose exactly your product/services.

Always first start with a problem that you want to solve. Try to choose one that you're passionate about, then you can try to figure out if people would pay to solve that problem and how much. If you have 1 customer and can see that can capture more, then you can calculate if it's worth using your 10,000 dollars to start this small business :) In short, it's a good idea to aim for a MVP or Minimum Viable product for your business . There's a few good books to start you off.
