  1. I started as a mirco business start-up myself and a since my time and expertise was the product I was selling, I had really no start-up costs to get functional. Of course things like incorporating your business, adding a professional web site, etc will add up over time…you can choose when you’re ready to tackle those.

    • That’s awesome to hear that you’ve been successful! Like you said, I and anyone else with a micro business, will eventually incur fees but they are not as necessary in the beginning as they would if someone had a physical storefront. By starting your business online, you don’t have to pay rent, insurance, and other costs associated with a storefront. My family and I went the physical storefront route at the beginning and let’s just say we wish we didn’t. Oh well, lessons learned!
