I've been wanting to work on opening a business of my own and stuff, but I lack much money.
I estimate that if things stay as they are, I should be able to save up around $1400~$1500 by the start of July. I said $10000 budget on the title because I aim to get the rest of the money from a loan (The $10000 represents how high I'm willing to go for loans, however, I would feel much more comfortable if it was below $5000 total).
Anyways, basically I just need some ideas. Developing the project, planning, and all that stuff I'm going to be doing it myself (with some help from a certain someone).
What I have thought of so far:
Street Hamburgers - Very common in Mexico, could give variety such as offering chicken burgers and other different stuff. Problem with this idea is that the food market is really saturated here already, though on the other side, I also very likely wouldn't need to get a loan.
Custom T-Shirt printing - There do exist many of these around here, but I consider it a problem that people have to look for them instead of the other way around. I have yet to see a single ad in my lifetime regarding these kinds of businesses, so a good marketing campaign should easily push me to the population's top of mind. Additionally, the way they do business is very outdated, as they don't have prices listed anywhere and you have to call just to get an estimate of how much it will be (in the best of cases you only need to write an email and wait for a response). Printess kinda comes to mind, but apply that to shirts. It should be easy and comfortable to do business with us. Can save money and use my own skills by making the business website myself.
That's all for now, I'll be adding more ideas when I think of them, and any ideas you propose that I like, with comments such as the above. Thanks for your help!! ^^
