If you have zero capital, zero profession qualifications - basically your starting from absolute scratch - what could you do?

What do you have experience in? What do you enjoy doing?

I'm a self employed private tutor but unless you've got a degree and/or teaching qualification that's probably not a goer.

Er... how long's a piece of string?

I suppose the first step would be to check if it's a realistic option. Do you have the skills to make a business work? OK, so let's say you want to be an acrobat - are you acrobatic? If not, start taking some lessons. If you are, look into what needs to be done to gain professional acrobat status - if, indeed, you need that for your business to succeed.

Capital can be done via a loan, so long as you can somewhat prove you have what it takes to make the business work.
