only you can answer that question, what interests you? what would you want to do as a career? you need to pick something that you like or have a passion for it and know that you want to do it for a longtime if not for the rest of your life.

I agree to that. if you love what yuo do then you would not be thinking that it is a work. Choose a business that you would see yourself actually enjoying every minute of it for it to be fruitful and you will love every cent that you will earn =)

Do your research before you do any business. You should learn how to do Internet marketing if you plan on marketing your business online. Get the business-know-how and skills before you open up shop...especially since you already have a limited capital resource.

If you have very little capital, then only you can sell your skill which you earn up to that time in your life. If you have right skill then you can make lots of money from them

Starting business does not always with big capital, most importantly we need to understand better, like this "remove the shame, the spirit and not forget to pray, always learned from many lectures (direct or indirect). I am a blogger mania, i learned more from many books and master blog, how to made design website and SEO (Search Engine Optimal) and now i have offered made design to many people who like or want uniqe or different design of Blog. The most important, Action and action ..., Thanks

Do you have any sales background? If not, you may like to join insurance company and start off as insurance agent. The training provided by the insurance company will improve your sales and marketing skills. Many insurance agents are good at drawing close to people, within 5 minutes of talking to stranger, the stranger already feels like knowing the insurance agent for years. Holding the namecard showing that you are an insurance agent also makes it easier for you to cold-call various companies and learn about the kind of businesses in your area. It is a good way to build up network for the business you have in mind. Personally I know that I'm the kind to start a business, just not committed enough to make cold call and talk to people. If you are the kind of persons able to take rejections, then the training in insurance company will help you a lot.
