How Two Friends Started a Business With No Startup Capital
Having previously failed three different businesses. Steve decided the next business he goes into shouldn’t require any hefty startup. He owes a lot of money to debtors and had zero dollars to his name.
His friend, Jose, has just been fired from a job he’d barely started. Jose wanted to hang out and have a beer or two but Steve, on the other hand, was scrambling as always to have his next light bulb idea.
Jose dropped by anyway because he didn’t feel like spending the afternoon alone in misery. This was the fifth job he’s been fired from in the past 4 months. He needed Steve to help him come up with the best way to let his girlfriend (of the time) know he had more potential and wasn’t going to settle to minimum wage. “Steve is an excellent communicator and knows how to persuade anyone. This dude can sell ice to an Eskimo, he’s that good!” Jose commented about his business partner Steve.
After having a few beers at Steve, Jose, who’s a light weight, began talking about his position at the junk removal company he’s just been fired from. Jose explained in detail what his previous job was lacking to scale to multiple 6 figures per month. Steve, on the other hand, was listening very attentively to every single word that his drunk friend had to say.
“Jose, do you think you can run the business better than your ex-boss?” Steve asked. “Absolutely, dude!” Jose replied.
This started the new business we now know as Junk Removal Alexandria Pros.
Steve knew his friend Jose has the managerial mind to manage a junk removal company, and he has the mind to market and advertise it.
Steve asked if Jose was interested in starting a junk and garbage business and he immediately was on board with the idea of partnering with a sharp mind like Steve.
