There is nothing more rewarding than waking up every morning and going to work for yourself. The biggest problem that people have when they decide that they want to start up a home based business is a small capital. A little start up money does not have to stop you in your tracks, there are countless things that you can do with a thousand dollars or less.
If you know what business that you want to do from home, and you know that there is no way in the world that 1000 dollars will be enough to get it started, than use the 1000 as investment and not start up. Anything that you can buy and than turn around and sell for a profit is considered an investment. First you have to decide how fast you want the profit to come. Let's say that you have decided to go out and look for an investment then you see it, your neighbor has his old car for sale for 600 dollars, you are great with your hands and cars and you know that you can fix it up and turn a profit.
You buy the car, spend about two weeks, and the remaining $ 400 dollars on fixing it up. Then you sell it for $ 2500. You have successful turned your thousand dollar investment into a $ 2500 start up capital. If you are still short on what you need to start your own business, you now have more money that you can invest in other options to more than double your capital once again.
