"hey, you're amazing at starting your own business and i just have a question. i am trying to find a work-from-home job but I don't want to pay a chunk of money on selling product. what would be your advice on working from home or do you know of any good places that offer work-from-home opportunities? do you have any ideas because i'd greatly appreciate your help!"

starting a business/running a business take a lot of work and often have upfront costs that have to be taken care of. i don't think that it's impossible to start a business with little to no money, but it's definitely hard.

my advice for starting a business or working from home is to think about a skill you already have and then start marketing that skill. use the resources you already have! you can also check places like craigslist or the classifieds of any newspaper for work-from-home jobs. try asking your facebook friends/people in your church congregation if they know of any work-from-home opportunities around you. working from home or starting a business are both all about who you know. when i say that, i don't mean start a facebook page & market to all of your friends + family. (although they are a good audience to start with... just be careful...) i mean network. work with people who have skills you don't have that can help you to create a stronger company & brand. 

but if you came here for 50 ways to make extra cash in 2018, i'll get to the point. we can talk business strategies later. (or just email me at i lovvvvve talking business!!)
