So the numbers are in: it costs about $30,000 to start a business... and 80% of that money is from friends and family.
The idea is this–somewhere, somehow $30,000 has to get to you in order for you to get going. If you can use this money to buy resources then the business is off to a good start. BUT if you can find a way to get the resources first before you get the money, you can give up less equity and your business moves faster. Get the resources first and watch your business grow!
