Go to college for something useful
Join the military
Learn a good trade

I know that you're about to say.
"m-muh business"
"muh investing"

Assuming that you don't have a trust fund and don't have an interest free loan from mommy and daddy, where is that startup money going to come from? Investors? You think investors are going to loan money to someone with no experience or education? Maybe if your parents have rich friends, but that's not up to you. Creditors? What bank is going to loan you money without some sort of collateral? No bank I've ever heard of.

A normal dead end job

It requires leaving your basement to go to work, daily

implying any dead-end job would hire a basement-dweller post-Obamacare

Well alright there Jay Z.

Except you subsist on a normal, dead end job. You don't have enough income to amass your nest egg.

You're not building your nest egg from the dead end jobs. You're building a up capital to start a small business.

It can be accomplished by living well below your means for a relatively short period of time (6-12 months).

live in shit apartment that charges you $600 per month for rent
work two jobs that pay 12 and 22k per year
thinking you're going to save up the 50k you need for your business plan in a reasonable amount of time

I think you've got an unrealistic idea of what a non-trade, non-union worker with only a high school diploma can expect to make even if they cut corners on personal expenditures. Your time frame is also totally unrealistic.

OP has discovered how to work something other than minimum wage

thinking you need $50,000 to start a business

Door to door with a lawn mower and some business cards - $250.

I'd agree it's unrealistic if I didn't do it myself. 9th grade dropout btw, never bothered going back. I hire people that 'get it' to do the hard work while I manage it.

Two words,

Web development.

No, not saying you should become a code monkey like pajeet that edits css and html.

Learn how to code and make a local website with online services that charges a few bucks. What service? Well get thinking. You won't earn much from ads, they pay a pathetic amount.

If you live in a big city (500k+) you have to get out and and give away fliers, all day, for a long time. Fliers and posters are the only way to get visitors if you have no money.

If your service is good, you should slowly start earning money, after a little while (half a year if you do a lot of fliers) 1k passive income is easy to achieve.

Now here comes the interesting part, you can either improve your website and advertisement campaign and try to get more visitors that pay more for better services or do the exact same website in another city, now that you earn 1k a month passively, you can pay some teenagers to give out fliers instead of doing it yourself.

Of course you have to be smart to pull this off and it's not easy.

What user said, only it's probably 6-12 years instead of months. But it can be done. I'm doing it. See you on the other side.

You think investors are going to loan money to someone with no experience or education?

They did for me. I raised £100k investment for my first company when I was 19 years old.
