Small Businesses That Are Free or Cost Little to Start Up

Has the slumping economy got you looking for ideas to earn some extra money? If so, personal finance blog Wise Bread can help you out with their list of small businesses that are free or cost little to start up. Here are 3 along with their "advice to live by" for each suggestion:

Artwork or handcrafted items - In addition to the cost of materials, add in labor to the price of your artwork and handmade wares.

Tutoring - The more websites you sign up for, the greater your chances of tutoring full-time. If paying a percentage of your wages to a third party doesn't appeal to you, print out business cards and rely on word-of-mouth advertising to launch your business.

Caretaking - Do not give out contact information to a person until after you have done some research on them. A criminal background check on a client is a small price to pay in terms of your safety.
