  • We own a Carpet Cleaning business. We purchased a "Kit" that came with the low moisture machine we use, a hand held mini machine for stairs and furniture, several gallons of the cleaners, smaller type specific stain remover products, pads or "bonnets" as well as information about how to get started and such.

    Our business is still "part time" for us, but we do roughly $1,000 a week. We are pushing commercial work now and just landed one large contract and hope to get several more and hire a few employes and more equipment.

    We literally got our business started with just about a $2,500 initial investment.

  • Gift basket business. My husband and I started the business ourselves. Unlike uniquemom30, we are NOT consultants. We built this business from the ground up and control every aspect of it.

  • My husband and I have our own business. We work with a well established company(2 actually) and are both in the works of opening business from the ground up which is much more riskier than franchsing or consultant type deals.

  • There is a way, that you and I can build and earn a residual income on energy bills. The company right now is in TX, GA, and just came to PA a few weeks ago. We will be going into a new state every 3-6 months. Let's get together for a cup of coffee and we can watch a webinar - email me at This is an exciting time for people who position themselves with this company.
