Everyone has toyed with the idea of making something from nothing — essentially entrepreneurial alchemy. Our goal at The Frugalpreneur is to help you start something awesome with little money to start with — if you have the drive to learn, the dedication to plug away, and a passion for what you do, you can make money.
Looking around the internet, people are innovating ways to make money by simply utilizing tools that are out there for free or cheap — start blogs, selling on Etsy, recording podcasts, and creating apps. For anyone with the initiative to learn from scratch and build something with simple means, you can find a home here.
Here you will find ways to make money online with little or no money to start with. That’s how the founder of this blog did it — and so did the subsequent acquirer, District Media, Inc.
Originally founded in the District of Columbia in 2007, District Media, Inc is an independent media company. Our objective is to deliver high-quality personal finance news and advice that informs, empowers, educates, and entertains the public. We provide this information free of charge through our portfolio of personal finance websites, with all operating expenses paid through advertising.
