Turn Your Business Into Profit

Don't let lack of resources hold you back from turning your business dreams into a profitable company

GREENSBORO, N.C. — There are thousands of entrepreneurs out there who have the perfect money making business idea but they don't know how to put it into motion or perhaps they're afraid to take the next step.

WFMY News 2's Money Expert Ja'Net Adams says you should never let fear or resources hold you back.

"So many people are sitting on a great business idea, but have not moved on it because they think they don't have enough money.  The average business can be started with $500 or less, but you have to know where to start," said Adams, who wrote the book The Money Attractor.

Adams shared free resources to help entrepreneurs in each level of business.

1. Beginner:

"Take advantage of the free resources that are around you. There are organizations around you with the sole purpose of helping you start a business and grow your business."

These organizations have free business classes and business mentors who provide their services for free.
