Everyone dreams of one day being their own boss.
Sure, having your own small business isn’t always easy, but investing in yourself, and putting all that hard work into something that will only benefit you, has many advantages. But the one thing about starting a new business is the sheer cost.
But there are a lot of business ideas out there that are really cheap to get up and running, plus they can be very profitable if you put in the time and effort. So here are 13 businesses you can start with less than $100!
Yes – no catches – just your time, enthusiasm and dedication. All these businesses are relatively easy to start and don’t have huge start up costs – in fact, very little start ups costs. So grab your $100 and spend it on your own business!
Here is a list of all the businesses that you can start for under $100 – and how to go about starting them!
Make and sell a delicious range of gourmet goods – there is a huge demand for homemade goodies, especially after Covid where people are valuing good homemade food done well.
If you have a good eye for photography and know how to make a product ‘pop’ – consider becoming a Flatlay Photographer and sell your images to Instagram Influencers. This business can be started for under $100.
If you only want seasonal work and a bit of extra money during the holidays, think about becoming a seasonal holiday decorator.
Start a Small Business Marketing business at home from only $100 in start-up costs. All you need is access to a computer, a diary, a phone (most of which everyone has already) – and a tenacious attitude.

Morning School Run Coordinator
Got a large vehicle? Are you always reliable, good with kids and available? Then perhaps consider becoming a morning school run coordinator! Loads of Mums have to work – and they have to leave for work before they can get the kids to school – and if the kids are in late primary and high school – and you are going in that direction – perhaps approach Mum’s to do the pickup and drop off in the mornings.
Even consider doing school lunches for the kids too to ‘Up-sell’ your business.
Of course, you will require a Blue Card and appropriate car seats in your vehicle.
How to Advertise for Clients:
- Advertise at your local school through the newsletter.
- If you have a larger vehicle with multiple seats, approach local childcare centres to do the pickup and drop of runs.
