Skills in processing an ingredient into a handicraft can be a promising business.
You also don’t have to start with big capital. With just a few hundred thousand, you can get started. Most importantly, perseverance and foresight to see business opportunities.
That’s the message that can be taken from I Nyoman Gede Sumaartha, a handicraft entrepreneur from Bali.

So, he took the initiative to create his own product to ensure customer satisfaction.

You can also learn from the success of Yanis Gallery from Yogyakarta, which penetrated the export market by using the website as a promotional medium. Various awards were won thanks to their diligence in the business.
Become a Dropshipper
Dropship also allows you to start a business without capital. However, make no mistake, his earning potential cannot be underestimated.
The dropship business model is similar to reselling. The results of the profits come from the price difference you receive from the buyer to buy the product from the seller. The difference, dropship does not require you to have your own warehouse. Because the seller will send goods to consumers.
Aprie Angeline is one of the successful people from the dropship business.
He started by selling clothing products that were not very successful. After switching to a reseller of beauty products, his income increased dramatically. He can get tens of millions in just a few months.
Until now, the drop ship business is still quite potent. Some platforms like YukDropship are starting to bloom offering this business collaboration.

There have been many successful figures in this business. You can be one of them.
Just mention the name Donny Kris Puriyono. This STIKI Malang graduate created a lot of software, from language laboratory software to school management. His business was successful enough to penetrate the export market. In fact, he managed to form his own IT company.
Hair Cutting Business
Have you ever seen the program “The Cuts Indonesia” that aired on TV? An event to find the best hairdresser. The event showed that the art of hairstyling has become a lifestyle trend in today’s society.
For business people, this is a business opportunity that can be developed.
To start this business also does not require a large capital. For example, Nikasius Dirgahayu only needed Rp.2 million when building Nick The Barbershop. The capital is used to buy haircut equipment, supporting furniture and initial promotional costs.
The turnover obtained from the business has now reached more than Rp.15 million / month.
If you have a place at home that can be utilized, you don’t need to rent a shop. This means that this business can be a home-based business.
If it has developed, you can follow in the footsteps of Arfa Barber Shop and Toekang Tjoekoer to make it a franchise business. Of course, you are the franchisor.
