Paul, $3000 - $5000 is NOT a large amount of money.
That may not be a large amount of money to you, to someone that makes 30 to 35,000 a year, has rent, car, utilities, child support,
grocery, insurance, and a whole slu of other bills,
then yes, 3 to $5,000 is alot of money. Not all of us make $70 to $80,000 + a year.....
That is the whole point of starting a business is to make more money to get out of what ever rut you are in and to better your income. And like I said, if you wait till you have the funds, then chances are you will never start. If, at least you start with what you can and as time goes by, then you can improve things becuase you are seeing results and you can determine what stages to move onto from where you are.
If you sit wait, just think of all the time you wasted when you could have already had your foot in the door compared to just starting out....
