Top 20 Business Posts of All Time: #6 Ten Ways to Bootstrap a Sustainable Business

by Grace Bonney

One of the main reasons I wanted to start a business column here at Design*Sponge was because I was tired of all of the stories about entrepreneurs being focused on people who had tons of money from day one. Most of the small business owners I knew didn’t get started with millions (or even thousands) of dollars, so I wanted to hear the stories of people who bootstrapped their way to success. All of the advice we shared in the Life & Business column, like today’s #6 post on the Top 20 Countdown, was all about celebrating and supporting the big business dreams of creative people with small business budgets. This post from Emily Fischer shares 10 helpful tips for funding your new business idea on a bootstrap budget. This advice is always helpful for just about any business model, so I hope it might inspire a few more people to get started today! xo, Grace
