When starting a freelance business, there can potentially be a lot of upfront costs.

Luckily, most freelancers work from home which saves a large amount of money that would normally be spent on renting office space.

There are other essential items that you need to have a successful business, but that doesn’t mean that they have to break the bank.

Millo offers some fantastic advice on how you can save money when starting (or running) your freelance business.

One way to save a lot of money is to simply buy used.

“Buy used.

Buy secondhand everything! And I mean EVERYTHING!!  Printers, desks, furniture, chairs, computers, fridges, dishwashers, tables, chairs, cars…everything.

Buy a secondhand coffee machine for your office and you not only save the $4 on the Starbucks coffee, but you also save in lost productivity of you and your team going out for 15 minutes to get coffee. Winning!”
