Other than a Snap-On tool truck, what decent small business is it possible to get into for under $50k? I'm just about at the end of my rope with working for others. My problem has never been lack or work ethic, but rather lack of ideas. I got talking to a guy who bought a UPS store a while back. He said UPS required $7k just to talk with him about it, but then, if he went forward, credited that toward his franchise fee or other start-up costs. I don't think he's gonna get rich with that place and they seem to be everywhere. I've spoken with a guy about a Snap-On truck franchise, but they wanted $50k cash to start and I'm not keen on becoming a lender and collector, which those guys have to do when selling tools on credit. So what's the best way to make a living with $50k or less in seed money, with a strong back and a weak mind?
