Side hustles to start with minimal capital

Steve and Tyler have both learned so much from actually starting businesses, rather than just learning about starting businesses. So if you want to start one yourself, how should you begin? 

This episode goes through some business ideas that need varying levels of skill and varying amounts of capital. Maybe one will spark an idea for you and inspire you to try something of your own.
