8. Barter services. If you have a friend whoâ€™s a genius when it comes to accounting, or you know someone who is an amazing artist, barter with them for their services. The more you can get for free, the faster you can grow your business. You donâ€™t need big time capital (unless youâ€™re building the next Facebook).Most business ,like my own, start from nothing. I had a word processor and my parentsâ€™ phone line. I bartered a lot early on, and as a result, I own 100% of my business today.
