Sweet and Low

You can start for less than $10K. Here are 10 hot businesses that won't break the bank.

It sounds like a great idea: starting your own business, being your own boss, charting your own destiny, coming to work in bright red high-tops whenever you feel like it. In spite of all the talk lately about multimillion-dollar venture capital deals, it is still possible to start a business for less than the cost of a new car, even a cheap one. For the price of 285 movie tickets, 200 pizzas, one good mountain bike or a spring break trip to Florida, you can hang out your "I'm the boss" shingle and get started. In fact, all the entrepreneurs spotlighted here started up for less than $10,000-in some cases, a lot less-and you can, too.
