More out of curiousity than anything else. Is there any kind of business one can start for 25K or less? I'm sure it could possibily depend on the area, seeing as some places are naturallymore expensive than others, but I wonder if there are any types of business that could be started/bought for quite cheap.

Vending Machine is interesting and I'm sure you could get a few for 25K or less...Food trucks are also good might I'm guessing they'd be more thna that around these parts. They make a truckload of money here (especially in the industrial areas) so I'm betting they'd go for a bit more than that.

I guess it could cost about that if you were to do it yaself from scratch though.

A lot of that depends: if you are relatively educated in business fundamentals and such (money, marketing, specialized knowledge) you could probably do it, depending.

If you've never run a business before and don't have much experience might be more difficult. Starting a business is much easier and you save a lot of wasted money if you've done it before

With that said: any particular type of business? Phone Post 3.0

As I said, I'm just curious right. I probably wouldn't go through with starting one as I lack experience with running and having my own business. I'm also not skilled in anything that I could run a successful business on (experienced and qualified journalist and policy advisor).

But I do have a fair bit of money saved up. If I was to go down the own-business route, I could prolly spend about 30-35K, including shit like insurance and all that.

Have you checked out any of the Jim's franchises? Not sure what the return is like on them though and what market share you can attract.

Just found a bounce house business for 22k I was thinking about picking up. Very little over head, not a lot of time commitment or labor and its already an established business with some dedicated clients, business and personal. Phone Post

"I probably wouldn't go through with starting one as I lack experience with running and having my own business."

That's the thing, you just have to do it. Every business owner has made mistakes and would do different things if they could do it all over. The worse that can happen is that you'll lose money. You'll still be able to recoup that money. 25k is not that much. I know, easy to say that it's not much, but again, you'll be able to recoup that money if you worked again. The risk of losing 25k vs the gain of having more freedom to do what you want and not have to ask a boss for permission far outweighs the risk IMO.
