The fact of such people to exist is good news because it means that a new businessperson comes into
the market whose engine works on intentions and ideas instead of a party`s pocket. 

In the actual circumstances, hardships are to be met in both cases, but if the one who decides to start a business has a seed funding, an easy start and huge risks at development are guaranteed. In case of no seed funding, there is a chance to fade away without even growing up.

A Seed Funding. Thus, here is the strategy of entering a business in case there is no seed funding on your hands. Before business making, what you need to have is a business idea, which looks working and inspiring. If you do not like doing something, you better do not do it. It is a grim prospect. Find an activity, which keeps you interested.

Golden Rules : 

The first rule is do not apply funds before you earn. This is where many newbies are trapped. One of the main rules of running any kind of business is that programs should sponsor themselves. Present-day world is addicted to a drug called a credit. There are three types of credit capacity, which are investor-, client- and supplier credit. In all the three cases, everything depends on the amount of money you have. You may have enough, a few or be a bankrupt after all. If there is someone who is ready to provide you with some, you are on a roll. A credit capacity depends on how good you are with money and how you can prove it.

Do not try to seem cool, be Effective. Provide with a truly good service or a product. If a client is going to be sure of that, s/he will pay you and it does not matter how cool you are. Customers do not
care; good services and/or products are what they are looking for. Providing with what a customer pays with pleasure, you are going to become cool by default. Keeping a focus on that in the very beginning of your activity, you are going to win. A cheap bluff though does not look ridiculous only but also may lead you to a financial failure.

At that, stick to the happy medium when it comes to an image. Kill out of the elements of a street person image wearing outfits, accessories and driving cars, which have become a cliché. It is better to
have no wristwatch at all than to wear eye-catching low budget things. It reduces sales targets. Even at the lowest income, one may look nice and neat. If you are a multi-millionaire, you may allow yourself being this eccentric but it is going to be another stage, the stage when everyone knows about you.

Where to invest? Key expanses are office space and personnel. Do whatever you want but live within your means. Do not spend more than 10% from what you earned on a rent. Calculate your minimal income and go from there. If a cost for an office exceeds reasonable limits, go for a cheaper one. There are many kinds of business where you may work from home after all. One may rent an apartment using it as an office, usually it is cheap. Also, there is a way out to meet clients in the halls of hotels. It is convenient there. A warehouse may be located in a garage. And spend money and products only after you calculate an income.

By the way, if there is no seed funding at all, get a job and save some money. A piece-payment shop assistant would be the best thing. You are going to need it. A credit capacity and trust appear when people see you being good at money. A supplier may also supply goods on trust but you are going to be very convincing. Lines of communication are what you do not have to save on. Means are to be used effectively to the extend without reducing expenses into this area. Network communication with clients.

Find out what they need with the help of questionnaires. It is not difficult. Ask direct questions, for instance “What can we do for you so you wanted to pay us?” Do it afterwards. Do count money before spending it. It is very important at the pioneering stage. The lower your income is, the more detailed a financial planning should be.

Everything is even simpler when it comes to personnel. No fixed salaries at the beginning of business. A piece-payment only. For everyone. Payroll budget should be fixed with a margin fee, for example 30%. Find people who are ready to work on a premium deal, normally these people are the most productive ones. Raise funds on all those expenses, which are going to rise your status in the future. An expensive office space, transport, salaries, etc. Becoming self-sustained, use these means.

In conclusion, do not ever rise up a level of life out of a sudden income rising. No matter how hard you want it. Wait for a constant flat income when it will be for your pocketbook. Sometimes, it is even more profitable to bear with it, then to get oneself out of debts.
