How do I start a business on a low budget?

I live and work in Jamaica. I'm a customer service agent with Air Jamaica taking home a salary of $50,000 JMD monthly. I am interested in buying and selling products like electronics, clothing, accessories and bath products.

<P>Probably the same way we all did - by starting small.</P>
<P>In business you have two options: Start with what you have.  Most of us start after hours in the garage and with a small budget.</P>
<P>Or, you can build a business plan, go and raise the capital, hire people, then go to work.</P>
<P>It is up to you which way you should go, but remember to read as much as you can about how to grow and run a business as well as the products or services you offer.</P>
