How to Start a Business with No Money


I have been running my own businesses now for over 13 years, and during that time I have been approached by countless people all asking …


  1. Hi Trent, I have one honest question for you. Why does it keep growing if they can't keep one project going? Or was this just to illustrate "The Green Dot Theory"? You need perseverance to sell green dots or red dots or green squares or red triangles or… anything really. Thanks in advance for your time ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What about the people who arenโ€™t charming, but have good ideas and capabilities and motives? Just no voice. How do THEY start?

    Your feedback would be really helpful as Iโ€™m genuinely asking.


  3. Haha the hilarious thing is, if we really believe everything heโ€™s saying as fact, then why the hell would we want to โ€œspread the wordโ€ of this knowledge by liking and tweeting about it? The VERY first thing Iโ€™d want to do is get the video as little views as possible so only I know and no one else does. Lol

    Anyway, to the guy in the video personally; thank you for the advice, it actually gave me a shove in the right direction that was crucial. So thank you.

  4. I have a question, do I need to study at a university for commerce degree in order to be successful in life? (Like own a business instead of a 9-5 monotonous job)

    I want to major in accounting and finance btw

  5. Just looked at your video. I gave it a thumbs up. It's the truth. Here's how I herd it, of course you explained it. "You can't change direction unless you are in motion". There's never a straight climb to goal.

  6. Thanks. What really stood out for me was your honesty about no knowing things or never even heard of this or that. As a small business owner one is often pushed in a corner as all and everyone believe that you know it all. That are an accountant and a salesperson and a technical expert etc.

  7. You are a true entrepreneur educator, 20 years now I didn't have the same words and ideas, what you said in a sequence. There are many false people on internet claiming gurus. But non of them is so clear like you. I admire your clarity.

  8. It doesn't look like you check this channel anymore Trent, but I watched this video two years ago when I started thinking about becoming a freelancer and it really changed my mindset and helped give me the courage to pull the trigger and start. This is some of the best advice I could have gotten and I wanted to say thank you.

  9. Thank you so much for the advice and tips! I have been calling myself a caterer for years, and although my prices are great, and my food is wonderful, I am not seeing much success in terms of Business growth. In other words, I am making the same money that I invest. I found myself settling for the idea that "Cooking was just a hobby" ! Ultimately my business slowed down, I was only catering my own events, family/ friends functions and small word of mouth events on occasion. Non-the-less, I am sought after for large-scale proposals. People still like me as an individual, and compliment my business services, so I have not given up hope. Some day, some how, I will grow my catering business into a lucrative successful business. Again, Thanks for the video. You have no idea how meaningful your demonstration of the green/red dot theory has influence my next move!
