People can find success when starting with almost nothing. You need to give yourself time to grow. Don't expect it to happen overnight. Don't take on debt unless you know what you are doing.

This article talks about a guy who started his business with a mower and a can of gas.

Odd jobs service works its way into full-time business - Mowing the lawns of neighbours after school has turned into a full-time business with five employees for one local entrepreneur.

Delio’s Garbage Removal and Backhoe Services is erecting a 40- by 60-foot maintenance centre at 120 Hankard St.

“I used to walk around Whitney Pier with a lawn mower and a gas jug,” said Paul Dalesandro, whose philosophy of hard work and long hours is paying off.

The business is getting 40-50 hours of work each week, “my grandfather instilled in me a good work ethic.”
