Top Business to Start in 2010 From Home $200 or Less

by J.Crawford on February 18, 2010


Under 200$ to Start a Business? Yep!.... Or even Free.

So whats my top business to start in 2010 for a couple hundred bucks and part time commitment?  This one home business idea was an “aside” of sorts, at first, for my successful small business and is quickly becoming a top earner and is the most passive income stream I have to date.

I know, the “so simple anyone can do it” business ideas across the web are enough to make a person vomit. But the title’s true and this business model is by far the easiest business to start from home.

What is the best business to start in 2010?

A Blog….


It is a great home business idea and one of the most accessible business models on the planet when it comes to cost, risk, time commitment, and skill set requirements. I mean you can start one if you know how to type! That probably includes most folks over the age of 16.  In fact my daughter, who is 10, has a couple sites and when she is in junior high, she’ll likely make over a grand a month!

Most successful small business are really quite simple just like this one.  Whats nice about starting a business from home is that your “free” time becomes an asset and if you don’t have free time you can create some, regardless of how busy you are.

Easiest Business to Start

Good topics to start this business are endless, from topics about work to products you might use around the house to hobbies like camping or dancing or hiking or skydiving.  All of these make great topics to create an easy home business revenue stream and the best thing is you can learn everything you need to know for free. It is one of the easiest businesses to start from home bar none.

This is a business that can be started for under $200 dollars like I said, actually, it can be started for free on a free blogging platform. I recommend using a self hosted word press platform, just because that is what I’m used too. It really doesn’t matter a bit.

I agree it’s important to start a home based business that you enjoy doing. Once the novelty wears off, it can become tedious. I owned a sign franchise for a number of years that I eventually sold as the work was not enjoyable. Now I sell on eBay and do some affiliate marketing. After 3 years, I still love my online home business.

Great Point Andras,

I agree the top business to start is going to end up being a business that causes us to be engaged in activities we genuinely enjoy and are left fulfilled in doing. I find yo book quite interesting, the title I mean, where would a person get a hold of the book? Mind leaving a comment about that?

Thanks for the comment, contribution, and warning to folks who might fall prey to an internet “scam”.

It is impossible to gauge what business works for one person that might otherwise not work for others. Prior life experience, aptitude, interest and other factor such as gender, connections from relatives or spouse might position someone into a great business that might not work for others. All in all, I loath business-in-the-box scams, MLM’s or any other scams that are often pipe dreams and offer disillusionment and fiscal hardship to people who can least afford it. I have tried many venues and what worked out only worked because I did not care about the money but I did it out of love.
I am a blogger/publisher and author who poked around writing and publishing before I have started my public domain publishing.
Finally I wrote a book on my business. The Public Domain Publishing Bible: How to Create Royalty Income for Life
