There's never been a better time to be an entrepreneur: you can start with hardly any money at all and there's loads of advice available. On Business Ideas at least.
Now's the time for employees, even if they have a full job. A project can be simplified to be tested on a small scale, within a few hours a week, before being expanded.
Now's the time for students, projects that are part of their studies can be extended to become a small business for a small cost.
Now's the time for the unemployed, be your own boss and prove you can do much better than people would think.
