My salary is too little for us. I am thinking what will be a good business to start? For just a small moolah.

since you are in computers, is it hardware or software or both? internet cafe is a good start but you got to have a good and competent person to handle it since you also have a daytime job. like you, i also have a small internet cafe (10 pcs), and have a trusted person handling it and its not a small amount of capital you need in here, got mine for about P250k. its now in its 3rd year of operation. but since you are looking for a small capital business, why not try making customized computer programs for small companies that can't afford the pricey patented programs. just my .02 cents

I do like internet cafes. I have manage 3 internet cafes in the past. Two of it was owned by my friends and the other one was owned by me. Good thing I know pc troubleshooting and networking, so it's not bit of a hassle for me. But now that I have a full-time job, and I've stopped my internet cafe business, what I need now is some sideline work or small business.

I think that you can start an online as well as an offline business also with little amount .One think you need to start the business is the caliver to run it on the long time .I think business in any field need to upgrade as soon as the product is launched .The type of business in offline depend on the necessities of your localities .

This idea of yours maybe the best for me now. An online business. After all I own and managed a personal website, it's http://www.websaytko.com. I would probably think of what I will on it to generate income. Thanks

I think you can invest it into some small investment, anyway why don't you try buy and sell goods, buy something in bulk and then sell it to your friends.

I also think of buy and sell. But I guess you also have a lot of money to start with. Unless you'll gonna start with small items only, which has also small income.

You could start an office cleaning service. Have flyers, business cards made up. Go through your local phone phhone, and do a mass mailing. Or you can walk into any business and "sell your company" Offer a first time cleaning for 10% off. Offer a "Refferal Reward" Get 5 refferals, and they get half off one cleaning. (Make sure refferals lead to business)

That's a cute idea of yours. But I don't think I can handle that. It's not my forte.
