Coming Up With a Low Cost Business Idea Before Applying For a Small Business Loan

Coming up with the right plan for a low cost business starts with having an idea. The idea doesn’t have to be a complete or even an original concept. It just has to be an idea that will enable you to make money and get started with very little cost. Later on, when you go out to apply for your first small business loan, you’ll need to have a more concrete plan in place, but for right now all you need is a low cost business idea. It is the seed that will grow into the tree that will be your small business and all you have to do in the beginning is water it.
Starting out with a business that will not take a lot of money is where many of the big boy’s began. If you are will to work hard and keep a close eye on growth opportunities, you could end up making that small business into an empire.
Let’s take a look at one of the great ideas of the past century, the hamburger stand. In the 1940’s and 1950’s, hamburger stands and drive ups were popular throughout most of the United States, but only one of the many came up with the idea of a fifteen cent cheeseburger, French fries, and a milk shake all available at a drive-up. That company was known as McDonald’s and they’re now an international phenomenon. All they had when they started was an idea for a low cost start up. Now the company can get funding for what ever they need.
The home computer was an idea (a really good one). The automobile was an idea. The only thing that separates you from the people who started up those companies is a little bit of working capital financing. Your idea could be just as good as any of theirs. You just need a little financial boost to get it going. This is the point where you need more than an idea and a plan.
If you are like most owners, you may not be doing exactly what you want, but keep in mind that unless you have unlimited funds, you will need to start out on the smaller size. Creating a health business will help you obtain the financing for your dream business, and help you maximize the value of your small business concern when, if ever, you decide to sell.
