Economic Stimulus Package – Why It’s Never Been a Better Time to Start a Business Without Money

The Economic Stimulus Package has opened a window of opportunity for budding entrepreneurs desiring to start a business without money from loans. In fact, it has never been a better time to start a business than NOW, for anyone seriously considering self-employment. Why? Well, to fully understand the answer to this question, let’s take a look at how the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act could impact your family. 

Tax Breaks: Payroll tax credits to the tune of $400 for singles and $800 for married couples, provide working Americans with more money in their weekly paycheck. Low income families also benefit from an increased child tax credit and earned income credit. College students are also reaping the benefits of the economic stimulus package, with an expanded tax credit benefit of $2,500 for tuition and related expenses.
Unemployment Benefits: The jobless get a leg up, with increased weekly benefit checks and a plan for suspending taxation on those same benefits.
First-time Home Buyer Incentives: Uncle Sam is dishing out an $8,000 tax credit for home purchases made through December 1st, as an incentive to stimulate the slumped housing market.

Auto Sales Tax Deduction: Car buyers get a boost by having the added advantage of deducting the sales tax paid on any vehicle purchase, from their taxable income.
Energy Efficiency Savings: Weatherizing your home can save you big bucks.  The new stimulus package provides for $4.3 billion in energy efficiency tax credits. Homeowners are entitled to 30% of the cost of home improvements (such as window replacements, doors or upgrades to heating and air systems) that increase energy efficiency, with a cap of $1,500.
So why is it such a good time to start a business without money from bank loans and outside investors — and how can you get started? All road signs indicate that the time is ripe now.  Here are 3 tips to help you get started on the road to success.
#1: Take Advantage of Increased Take Home Pay
The economic stimulus package is putting more money in your pocket. With increased payroll tax breaks, the government is hoping that you will spend more – in order to stimulate the economy. Don’t do it! The misuse or credit is the root cause of inflation. That’s the core problem that has put the nation into recession.
#2: Cut, Spend Less, Save More
Ruthlessly cut your current spending habits by eliminating all unnecessary expenses from your budget. Don’t allow the tax breaks to entice you to spend more. Create a financial plan and spend less by consolidating all expenses. Save more by getting rid of any unnecessary expenses, and put that money aside in a savings and investment fund — no matter how small the amount.
#3: Bootstrap, Bootstrap, Bootstrap!
Now that you have more money in your paycheck and a plan for reducing and consolidating your monthly outgoings, you’re on the brink of success. The final leg is to investigate bootstrap financing. Learning how to start a business without money from bank loans or borrowing, can only be achieved with a proven bootstrap financing system. This final step is essential to your long term business success.

The economic stimulus package has many incentives for budding entrepreneurs. Take advantage of these incentives by putting a plan in place to start your own business. There has never been a better time to benefit from the “gaping hole” left in the marketplace from weakened competition, due to corporate downsizing and cutbacks.
Start your business TODAY – even if you have very little money, poor credit or don’t own a home. Find free sources of business start up funding and turn your dreams into a success story.

How to Make a Living Without a Job

Do you wake up in the morning dreading the day ahead because you hate your job? Are you at the point in your life where you have worked for years, maybe decades, but you have had enough and are ready to strike out on your own? Good for you! Do it! Quit your job!

Did you just panic at the thought of quitting your job? Are you thinking you wish you could but you still need the income? Did you know you actually can quit your job and still make a living? How? By starting on your pursuit of joblessness and making a living without a job. By finally taking control of your life and living the life you deserve. By living your dreams and earning a living doing work you are passionate about.

No, it’s not a pipe dream. Countless others have taken the plunge, quit their soul sucking jobs and created income streams using their talents, skills and passions. Wouldn’t you love to wake up in the morning (when your body wants to wake up, not when a jarring alarm clock forces you to) and actually look forward to the day? No more stressful commute to a workplace that causes anxiety and is detrimental to your health. Spend your days doing work that makes you happy for a change! Get paid to do “work” you enjoy. How?

Think of two or three activities that you enjoy doing. Think of one or two skills that you know you do well. Do you have a hobby that you love but rarely have time to enjoy? Let’s combine some of those items to create a non-job for which you will be paid.

Maybe someone enjoys cooking and traveling and swimming. And they happen to write fairly well, or even just so-so. And their hobby is collecting 1st edition books from their favorite authors. How would this person make a living from these activities? Are you stumped already because you can’t imagine how someone would combine cooking and swimming and collecting books? Ah, you are making this more complicated than it needs to be. How about if this person draws upon their writing skills to create a blog (monetized of course). They can write about any one of their favorite activities or their hobbies and voila! Instant income stream!

Of course for a beginner there isn’t much money in one blog. But set up several blogs (one for each passion; super simple and costs next to nothing) that are sprinkled with advertisements (you get a commission from the ads) and there is one simple way to make a living without a job.

Another income stream could employ their love of cooking. They could start putting out the word that they can cater small parties. Or they can offer their services as a personal cook for busy families. Or they can start a cake decorating business. They might go in a totally different direction and offer cooking classes for kids on weekends or set up a summer “camp” offering cooking classes.

Where there’s a will there’s a way! If you are dying to quit your job and live your life joyfully jobless start developing your income streams today.

Making A Living Without Having A Job – Is It Possible To Do This?

The idea of working from home is not a new one. In fact, I have met people who have been working from home since the 1970s. Some people describe this as making money without having a job, since much of what they are doing to earn a living is not from home at all. Whatever you call this, if your passion is to make a living without having a job know that this can be accomplished if you are willing to help others using the skills you already have or will work to attain.

While I was growing up I started a number of businesses with friends, including raising hamsters and gerbils for the local pet store and mowing lawns and babysitting in my neighborhood. this was the very beginning stage of my wanting to be an entrepreneur.

I also liked to write poetry and short stories, but in those days there was no way to turn that into a business. Today you would be able to publish your own writing on Amazon or Kindle and create a recurring income stream.

Take a look at what you love to do and the skills you have. What could you do that would fulfill your create spirit while also bringing in some money? A true entrepreneur is able to get creative and find a way to earn money based on passion, interests, and experience.

I have a friend who loves to arrange parties and events. This started out as a fun way to spend her time, but when her birthday parties, wedding, and other events turned out so well she decided to hang out her shingle as an event planner. Now she gets paid for what she loves to do, and other people’s lives are enriched in the process. Providing services for others is an excellent way to get started online.

Know that you can achieve any goal you set your mind to, so make the decision to use your natural skills and talents to start a business you can run from home, or from wherever you happen to be. You may also wish to learn how to do things that others will pay money for you to do for them. It might be on the Internet, or right in your own backyard. Also, remember that something you start out for fun on a part-time basis has the ability to grow into a million dollar business. Keep your eye on your goal and keep moving forward to achieve it.
