Yes, you can own a business you enjoy doing and getting the extra cash without having a business degree or $10K start-up funds in cash.
How? You need a goal, plan, and the drive to make it happen. So let's look at drive. We call it your why ( from Simon Sinek ), Why do you want to be in business? No, the answer is not because of the money! Okay, Yes, you want to make money, but your why is more than that. It's the thing you want to put out into the world more than anything else. It's that secret dream you only tell yourself and you are scare share. It's the thing that makes you smile when you think about it or do it.
