If you want to start a t-shirt line, you don’t need a boatload of money. You need a sample and a map of where you want to take it.
If you want to start a podcast, you don’t need a thousand dollar mic setup. You need a recording device (chances are if you’re reading this, you’ve already got one) and a topic to speak to.
If you want to build an audience for yourself or for a business, you don’t need to thoughtlessly spam 10,000 people about your product. You need to engage and become invested in maybe 1000 of them.
It doesn’t take a whole lot of imagination to begin, even without the help of million dollar budgets.
The best time and place to start is where you are right now, with the tools and resources you might already have.
