Businesses You Can Start With $50,000 to $100,000

If you’ve got $50,000 to $100,000 to invest in starting a business, you are one lucky dog! I’m Bob Adams and I started most of my businesses with less than $2,000 and some with just about nothing!

Eventually I got my Harvard MBA and started to make some serious money but I can remember clearly what it’s like to start with just about nothing. So if you’ve got $50,000 – wow! You can start just about any kind of business!
